Criminal Justice Students

Northcentral Technical College Criminal Justice Certification Track and Police Academy students wear duty belts while on campus to acclimate themselves to the equipment they will be wearing once they start their careers. While the belts they wear are real, the pieces of equipment in the pouches are not. The simulated handguns used are made from a single piece of red plastic. Academy and Certification Track students wear bright red uniform shirts with a badge on the front and "Recruit Training" on the back.


CJ students are only allowed to wear duty belts in designated areas and those areas are clearly marked with signage stating criminal justice training area simulated weapons in use.
