Career Opportunities

Employment opportunities are expected to be fair through the next decade as population and economic growth create a need for more officers to protect life and property, regulate traffic and provide other services. Police officers usually retire at a somewhat younger age than workers in other occupations, so replacement rates are relatively high.

Potential positions include:

  • County Police
  • Industrial Security Officer
  • Municipal Police
  • Private Security Guard
  • State Police and federal Agencies

"The SCC law enforcement program is an excellent stepping stone for a career in policing. It offers absolute submersion into the theoretical and practical aspects of law enforcement. I gained confidence needed to approach the application process and knowledge of the law and officer safety, before engaging into police training. Though I am a police officer in Canada, the program has provided me with a standard applicable in any law enforcement community."
