Police Academy, Administration of Justice, Certificate

The Police Academy Certificate program is designated as a Statewide Program; therefore, some residents of Maryland enrolled in this program of study on the first day of the term may be eligible for in-county tuition rates for courses required for program completion.

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.

Certificate Requirement (27 Credits)


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.

Students who have a criminal record need to be aware this could prelude them from employment in this filed. Please discuss concerns with the program coordinator. Additionally, students need to be aware that excessive prior drug use may prevent their employment in the state of Maryland as well. Please direct questions about this to the program coordinator.
