Program Description: The Law Enforcement program at VU is one of the largest programs at the University. Our program has a two part focus. Our first focus is to prepare students for entry level positions in law enforcement agencies in Indiana and across the country. Our secondary focus is to prepare students wishing to continue their education for the next level of university study.

The Law Enforcement program is not like any other program at any other university. We focus on achieving a balance between classroom instruction and hands-on training. Students learn about traffic investigation, forensic science, police operations and other important topics. They also conduct experiments and create footprint casts, take fingerprints, analyze blood spatter patterns and many other tasks performed right now in U.S. law enforcement..
