Administration of Justice
The Administration of Justice Program provides a course of study to prepare students for employment in private security and public law enforcement agencies, including: state parks, municipal police, game wardens, probation officers, county deputy sheriffs, county and state correctional officers and the federal government. The associate degree program will prepare students for transfer to UC and CSU bachelors programs (if the IGETC or CSU GE pattern is chosen.) The certificate program is an option for students whose employment objectives are with agencies who require less than an A.A. degree.
PUBLIC SAFETY TRAINING
South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium
As a member of the South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium, Gavilan College offers courses for students who are interested in Correctional Officer, Law Enforcement, Reserve Police Officer, Dispatcher, Fire Technology, Probation Officer, or Juvenile Hall Counselor careers. The Consortium is funded by all colleges regionally to provide vocational specific training which may require special facilities, special training conditions or is presented outside of the regular schedule of college classes.
Students completing these options may obtain a certificate of completion or an AA degree. Please see a counselor for details.
The application and registration process is completed at the South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium Center located near the Coyote Valley College campus. Although open to the public, the majority of these courses are intended to serve the “already employed”.
