Police Academy Application Process

This program is designed for students seeking careers in entry level positions in law enforcement agencies in the state of Ohio. These agencies include city police departments, village or township police departments, or county sheriff departments. While it is not required, it is an added benefit for those seeking careers in probation or parole.

The Ohio Revised Code enables North Central State College to incorporate the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy into the Criminal Justice Associate Degree program. The academy requirements are included in many of the program courses for the associate degree in Criminal Justice. Upon completion of the academy requirements, the student will be eligible to take the state certification examination to become a peace officer in the state of Ohio.

Our graduates have consistently scored among the highest graduation rates in the state, on the Ohio Peace Officer State Certification Examination.

The Academy is offered during the day, or at night.

Day academy students attend 8:00 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday.

Night Academy students attend 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Both Day and Night students will have to attend most Saturdays and a few Sundays.

The academy requires full-time enrollment in North Central State College.

  1. Apply the core criminal justice foundation concepts of juvenile justice, criminology, constitutional law, corrections, private security, and U.S. Judicial and Criminal Justice systems in solving and defending logical arguments and applications in the field
  2. Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively in writing and speech.
