Prepare to Protect & Serve
PCC equips men and women with integrity and Christian character to face the remarkable—and rewarding—challenges of criminal justice.
Beginning with a biblical foundation, PCC’s two-year criminal justice program trains students to understand the legal, philosophical, and moral foundations of criminal justice systems, while providing hands-on experience in practices and procedures. Specialized courses prepare students for entry-level employment, providing them groundwork needed to advance once they enter the field.
Criminal justice faculty have diverse personal field experience, which they incorporate into classroom instruction for a complete education. Additionally, local criminal justice professionals demonstrate current operations and protocol in class and in forums held twice a year, giving students valuable perspectives from active professionals.
Academic requirements completed in this program also apply to the Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice should a student want to further his studies after two years.
My education at PCC was one of the key foundations for my career in law enforcement. My classmates and I were taught to hold our standards high and answer to God first, knowing if we maintained His holy standards, we could maintain those of our police chiefs and commanders.
