The College of Southern Idaho Law Enforcement program is designed to prepare graduates to enter the law enforcement field.
The Law Enforcement Program has been approved by the Idaho Police Officers Standards and Training (POST) Council, thus eliminating
the graduates need to attend the basic police academy before taking the certification examination. Because the Law Enforcement
Program is driven by POST standards for certification into the law enforcement field, applicants to the program must meet POST
standards for admission. These admission standards may include a background check into the applicants criminal, driving, and
psychological and military records.
Students are encouraged to continue their educational opportunities through on-campus courses or through distance learning. Areas of continuing education may include an academic degree in Criminal Justice offered through the College of Southern Idaho. The Law Enforcement Training Program includes a part of the criminal justice degree educational core classes so the student may continue with their education with a minimal amount of duplication of courses.
