This program provides North Central students the opportunity to attend a State-certified police academy and graduate from North Central with an Associate of Applied Science degree and Michigan Council of Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES) certification. Students attend North Central for approximately three semesters and then enter the Kirtland Regional Police Academy to complete their training. The academy has two full-time, 17-week sessions, one beginning in January and one in July of each year.

Students interested in this program need to apply. Acceptance is competitive and is not guaranteed. A criminal background check is required for admission to the academy. See the North Central Criminal Justice Coordinator for more information. Students must take and pass the MCOLES Reading and Writing and Pre-Enrollment Physical Fitness tests prior to starting coursework at Kirtland Community College. Both tests are offered regularly at KCC.
