Careers in criminal justice are continue to grow. Growth among careers in law enforcement and investigation is reported at 22 percent, an above average gain, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The same published report projects 9 percent growth among probation officers and corrections personnel. This projection represents an average growth rate, but growth just the same.

To give you an idea of the options available in this growing industry, Cheryl Banachowski-Fuller, program director for University of Wisconsin-Platteville Online’s criminal justice program, offers her advice.

“In the current economic climate, law enforcement positions in most big cities are tough to get. They tend to look for people with a military background and prefer a candidate with a master’s degree,” she said. “Colleges like UW-Platteville prepare students to take full advantage of these opportunities.”
