Law Enforcement -Continuing Ed Courses

Our mission is to provide the best training possible from pre-service to retirement.

The Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Education Center (LECJEC) is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, as well as the Minnesota Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST).

"As a team, [the training] gave us a chance to "re-set" and come together on different tactics."
Course Participant, Summer 2014

In August of 2010, the new Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Education Center (LECJEC) was opened in a stand-alone facility on the Brooklyn Park campus of Hennepin Technical College. The LECJEC houses the skills program for pre-service students and provides state-of-the-art educational experiences for in-service personnel. The Center houses two firearms ranges, a video simulator, a two-story simulation lab area and numerous A/V equipped rooms.

Customized Training Services-Law Enforcement provides in-service training opportunities for peace officers and partners with Fire and EMS to provide integrated response training programs.
