Taking Aim at Your Future in Law Enforcement

“My goal is to work for the U.S. Marshals Service. Learning about the law at EAC is my first step to this career. The professors are really good about teaching you what you need to know, and eliminating all the filler stuff. I now have a much better understanding of why cops do what they do, and what they deal with.”

- Paul Novitski

 

“My classes are interesting because the instructor doesn’t just use textbook notes. He tells stories that give a real-world look into the field and how our knowledge can be applied.”

- Morgan Desaulniers

 

“I’m planning to become a paralegal, and this program is a great foundation. We have already learned about the courtroom process and I have really enjoyed it.”

- Sarah Keyes
