Criminal Justice


The Criminal Justice Department at Passaic County Community College offers both degree and certificate programs that can lead to either continued education or immediate employment in the fields of law enforcement, security, probation, or parole.

At PCCC, students receive state-of-the art instruction geared toward providing the best possible foundation for success in the rapidly developing field of criminal justice.

We prepare our students to enforce all types of new laws and to understand and control all types of crimes and criminal behavior - from rape and sexual abuse to auto theft, terrorism, and white collar crimes.

We achieve these goals through individualized instruction, providing each student with close personal attention and encouragement. In addition, our faculty maintains close continuous contact with employers, licensing boards, professional organizations, and four-year colleges and universities to assist students in the next phase of their professional development.
