Law enforcement schools in Illinois offer students the preparation and skills needed for a career in law enforcement. Most graduates of the program secure employment in criminal justice facilities such as county jails, prisons, juvenile justice centers, or any other facility that houses criminals and offenders of the law. Degree options available in most Illinois schools include a two-year associate’s degree, a four-year bachelor’s or a six-year master’s degree. Many law enforcement programs are offered at community colleges, four-year universities, and independent colleges. Typical courses taught in law enforcement include criminal psychology, criminal behavior, ethics and the law, and criminology.
