About the Institute

The Indian River State College Criminal Justice Institute is certified by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to conduct authorized Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission courses.
 
The safety and well being of our Nation's citizens greatly depends on the Law Enforcement Officers responsible for enforcing statutes, laws and regulations. Duties vary widely by the size and type of organization, but in most jurisdictions, whether on or off duty, Law Enforcement Officers are expected to exercise their authority whenever necessary. In addition, they spend considerable time writing reports and maintaining records that are needed when legal actions require them to testify in court.
