The Valley’s First Independent School for Security and Law Enforcement
The Police Science Institute was founded in 1991 as the Valley’s first independent school for security and law enforcement. The founders’ premise was that the law enforcement needs of society required a training program that blended professionalism and science in new and creative ways.
From its inception, Police Science Institute has combined a solid foundation in theoretical and research coursework with an emphasis on developing professional skills. Students at Police Science Institute build these skills through field experiences, which are an integral part of the curriculum. You learn it – then you do it. We are dedicated to providing students with the safety that can only be attained through training.
Our faculty includes master instructors who are affiliated with law enforcement agencies and are certified by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education, Bureau of Security and Investigative Services, Department of Justice, P.O.S.T. and the National Rifle Association. The Institute offers a set of courses which meet state licensing requirements and all successful graduates receive licensing in their respective profession. Police Science Institute strives to place every one of its students in full-time, permanent positions within their given industry.
