Pursue a Career in Public Safety

The Administration of Justice & Fire Science Department offers undergraduate students a curriculum designed to prepare young men and women for careers in law enforcement and related fields.  Additionally, we also provide educational opportunities for those seeking promotions within related fields.

Founded in 1946 as the Administration of Justice Department,  we were the second program of its kind in the State.  Since then we have grown in students and respectability to become one of the largest programs in California offering pre-service education. Our instructors are subject matter experts through their employment as police officers or as Firefighters and through their advanced study in their chosen fields.
