The Police Academy Certificate Program consists of core-professional courses designed to provide an academically enhanced delivery of the objectives required by HCC’s intensive 24-week Police Academy (see Police Academy requirements below). Successful completion of the program allows students to meet the Maryland Police and Corrections Training Commission (MPCTC) requirements for entry-level police certification. All courses within the program can also be applied toward partial completion of the Administration of Justice A.A.S. degree.
These courses are wholly integrated into entry-level police training and instruction offered only through the HCC Police Academy and are required for recruits who are members of a Police Academy cohort.
