Peace Officer Program

The Peace Officer program is designed to satisfy all pre-license requirements of the Minnesota Board of Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST). Graduates are prepared for careers as police officers, deputy sheriffs, corrections officers, security, and other law enforcement positions. An additional career path includes training toward a conservation officer, which would include a two-year program such as Environmental Science at RCTC.

The Associate of Science Peace Officer Transfer Pathway degree, Associate of Applied Science degree, and Certificate program satisfy the requirements to become MN POST Board Exam eligible. Graduates seeking employment as Police Officers will be required to pass the POST exam.
