Colorado Criminal Justice Schools

A criminal justice associate degree typically takes 2 years to complete with a full-time study program and can lead to a number of careers in the field of law enforcement. This program would help you land jobs in business security, court administration, corrections, victim advocacy, law enforcement and dispute resolution among others. Typical curriculum in a criminal justice associate degree would include courses in cultural awareness, statistical analysis, communication and research literacy. In addition to basic coursework, some programs may also offer the option for concentrations. Common specialization options include corrections, police administration and operations, substance abuse, criminology and crime analysis, security management, human services and advocacy, homeland security and counterterrorism.

Please note that in most cases, you will be able to turn your associate’s degree into a bachelor’s program.

A criminal justice associate degree is the ideal stepping stone for further education in this field.

National Estimates for Bailiffs in Colorado

(1) Estimates for detailed occupations do not sum to the totals because the totals include occupations not shown separately. Estimates do not include self-employed workers.

(2) Annual wages have been calculated by multiplying the hourly mean wage by a “year-round, full-time” hours figure of 2,080 hours; for those occupations where there is not an hourly wage published, the annual wage has been directly calculated from the reported survey data.

(9) The location quotient is the ratio of the area concentration of occupational employment to the national average concentration. A location quotient greater than one indicates the occupation has a higher share of employment than average, and a location quotient less than one indicates the occupation is less prevalent in the area than average.
