LECS Workshop

LECS Program

"Building bridges between Sacramento State, law enforcement and the community"

The LECS program is a 21st century solution partnering with local and state law enforcement agencies in California and their neighboring communities. The LECS program is expressly designed to eliminate challenges and barriers that face women and men seeking greater opportunities in law enforcement careers. The LECS program is fashioned to increase higher education graduation rates and career placement as well as create greater inclusion in recruitment and hiring within law enforcement. The LECS program also addresses leadership and policy issues and community relations concerns locally and throughout the state and the nation.
