Q & A 

What will I learn in this program?

In the criminal justice program you will learn the basics of law and the justice system. We offer classes in investigative techniques, arrest and interrogation, as well as ethics. KCC also offers a certificate in addiction studies that is the first step to you becoming an addiction counselor.

Is this program just for those who want to become law enforcement officers?

While the criminal justice program is mostly geared towards those who want a career in law enforcement, the program does offer the foundation to becoming a counselor or a forensic science technician.

How accurate are shows like CSI?

Not really accurate at all. According to How Stuff Works, there is quite a bit of inaccuracy in the show. In reality, investigations and processing evidence take quite a bit longer than Hollywood makes it seem. Also crime scene investigators do not deal directly with suspects, and CSIs are only one part of a larger investigatory team.
