Serving the public is our mission.
Associate Degree, Certificates
OCtech gives you a choice in the level of law enforcement you’d like to enter. We have certificates that get you working quickly and paths that you can use toward advanced degrees.
It’s a commitment.
There will always be a need for those who serve and protect the community. Our instructors teach from experience.
You’ll learn about the judicial process, ethics, and criminal and constitutional law. You’ll get hands-on training in crime scene investigation, police patrol tactics, weapon safety and more. It’s not what you see on TV. This is real.

Criminal Justice Coordinator
“Before joining OCtech, I worked in law enforcement as a sheriff’s deputy in Orangeburg County. I love the profession and enjoy watching students who want to make a difference in their communities.”
