EICC to Offer New Criminal Justice Degree Program
To recruit more young people for careers in law enforcement, the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, in partnership with local police departments, has announced a new criminal justice degree program. Coursework will cover firearms safety, physical conditioning, and police ethics.
Davenport Police Chief, and EICC graduate, Paul Sikorski says students will also have the opportunity to gain experience through work-based learning.
“Our profession is at a crossroads. All of us know that. But I look at it as an opportunity. This program is really going to supply a need for our Quad Cities region to do its part in reshaping our profession.”
The program will offer a two-year degree, a one-year diploma, and a semester-long certificate. Admission depends on a successful background check.
