6 CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROGRAM PLANNING REPORT The Criminal Justice program is designed to provide students with afoundational understanding of the key components of the criminal justice system and to prepare students for entry level careers in these systems A PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY AND MISSION The mission of the Criminal Justice program at LTCC is to provide students with a superior education in Criminal Justice In addition to meeting the needs of our studentpopulation the spirit and intent of a community college our curriculum and in meets the highest academic standards prepares students to think critically about the problems of crime and justice as citizens and enables students to perform effectively as employees in the Criminal Justice arena B PROGRAM GOALS AND OBJECTIVES In order to fulfill our mission the Criminal Justice program is committed to the following goals and objectives 1 Provide high quality core transfer level Criminal Justice courses that will adequately prepare students who are interested in continuing their education at a four year college or university 2 Develop peace officers and support personnel who will be able to serve as leaders and positive role models in the community 3 Provide education on the topic of Criminal Justice that will allow community become more informed citizens members to C RESPONSE TO RECOMMENDATIONS FROM PREVIOUS PROGRAM PLAN This is the second program plan for the Criminal Justice program Six recommendations were made in 2002 regarding the Criminal Justice program 1 The Criminal Justice Advisory Committee approved the restructuring of the CRJ certificate and degree to allow the students to select an area of concentration Criminal Justice Foundations Law Enforcement or Corrections Community Supervision Another change CriminalJustice Program Planning Report 1 June 2008

7 in the certificate and degree relates to the increase in units for the certificate from up to as well as an increase in units for the degree from up to Response The CRJ certificate and degree were restructured as described above in 2002 Since thischange very few students have been able to complete their certificate or degree see discussion under Section J Student Learning Success As a result of limited student success degree and certificate completions will be monitored for three more years to assess whether the program should return to a general foundational focus see discussion under Section F Curriculum and Section L Final Recommendations 2 The Criminal Justice Advisory Committee endorsed program expansion the POST Reserve Officer training to include Module II of Response Based on this recommendation LTCC was certified by POST to offer Module II of the Reserve Officer training Despite considerable marketing and outreach only five students finished the program Of these five students one has attainedfull time employment in public safety All ofthe POST Reserve Officer courses require immense administrative oversight due to constantly changing regulations and mandated curricular revisions In the 2006 Criminal Justice Advisory Committee a decision was made to officially go dark with the POST program due to a lack of student interest in the courses and the concomitant administrative burden on the college The advisory committee agreed that it is not fiscally responsible to continue offering the courses and thanked the college for attempting to take on the bureaucracy rich program The advisory committee asked LTCC to support other types ofin service training courses as they are offered within our district boundaries 3 The Criminal Justice Advisory Committee strongly supports program expansion ofin service training for law enforcement personnel into the area ResoonseIn service training contracts with local law enforcement agencies were formally explored in 2007 After several meetings with local agencies it was agreed thatthe contracts would not be as economically feasible as originallythought Costs associated with POST certified courses are reimbursed by POST and are therefore not eligible for payment from the college as part ofan instructional services contract Another barrier in going forward with the contracts involves Nevada residency The vast majority of the police department spersonnel live in Nevada and this presents a challenge to the college in terms of apportionment received from the State ofcalifornia Lastly many of the training sessions required for law enforcement personnel take place outside of LTCC sdistrict boundaries in Placerville Permission from the Los Rios Community College District would be needed before running the courses through LTCC and preliminary discussions with Los Rios administration have indicated an unwillingness to allow our college to offer educational services for Criminal Justice within their district boundaries The topic of instructional services agreements will be revisited on an annual basis 4 Whenever possible look for opportunities to cross certify POST courses with Standards for Training in Corrections STC Response This recommendation is moot given the fact that LTCC is no longer affiliated with POST CriminalJustice Program Planning Report 2 June 2008

8 5 In accordance with student and community survey recommendations the CRJ program should provide for hands onreal life work experiences whenever possible by incorporating such activities as guest speakers field trips toursride alongs participation in Career Link etc Response The Criminal Justice courses are liberally infused with guest speakers thereby exposing students to all aspects of the industry For example the local Coroner regularly makes presentations in the Introduction to Evidence course CRJ112 Instructors are actively employed in law enforcement or the court system and have access to a wide variety of colleagues to serve as guest speakers in their classes The Introduction to Custody and Corrections course includes a tour of the local jail and the opportunity to take the entry level examination to become a Corrections Officer 6 Consider developing marketing and outreach programs directed toward recruiting high school students especially under represented groups into the Criminal Justice program Response Vocational Education rack cards were developed that feature underrepresented groups For example the rack card for Criminal Justice features a female police officer conducting an arrest Outreach efforts at the high school have increased greatly in the past three years due tothe targeted efforts ofa Student Services staff member This same staff member serves on the Pathways and Career Education PACE team at the high school which is responsible for disseminating career infusion material to all students An annual Career Education Faire is held that prominently features the Criminal Justice program at the college Adjunct instructors and professionals from the field actively participate in this important outreach initiative The most recent Educational Master Plan was reviewed and there are no specific references to the Criminal Justice program D ACCREDITATION SELF STUDY The November 2005 accreditation self study and the visiting team sevaluation report were reviewed with respect to the Criminal Justice program No items were called out in either report that have direct bearing upon the Criminal Justice program There was however a general recommendation for establishing student learning outcomes for all instructional and student support programs This recommendation would apply to the Criminal Justice program and is addressed in Section J E PROGRAM HISTORY AND PROJECTIONS Enrollment Trends EYES As indicated below enrollments in the Criminal Justice courses have fluctuated considerably since Trends are affected by instructional services agreements in place with public safety agencies For example the California Welfare Fraud Investigators ran their annual training event through LTCC for college credit in The increase in student enrollment in CriminalJustice Program Planning Report 3 June 2008

9 related to Juvenile Corrections Officer courses designed to meet thepre employment training needs of Juvenile Treatment Center staff Academic Year Student Enrollment Excluding specific training events eg California Welfare Fraud Investigators class sizes for Criminal Justice courses have averaged 11 85students median 12 with a range of 6 to 25 overthe past five years With respect to studentenrollment Criminal Justice is ranked as the 6th smallest instructional program on campus out of 44 programs While courses related to the Criminal Justice certificate and degree programs have been small they have only rarely been cancelled due to low enrollments in the past three years Converting student enrollments to FTESfull time equivalent students yields the following data for the Criminal Justice program Again trends are affected by targeted training programs and courses designed to meet immediate employment needs in the communityeg opening of the Juvenile Treatment Center Academic Year FTES With respect to FTES production Criminal Justice is ranked as the 9th smallest program on campus out of 44 programs FTES production for the other43 instructional programs range from a high of 255 Physical Education to a low of 43 Hospitality Staffing Full Time Faculty Adjunct Faculty Classified Staff There are no classified staff specifically assigned to the Criminal Justice program Afull time eleven month contract Vocational Programs Technician wasadded to the General Fund in and this position assists the Criminal Justice program Prior to going dark with the POST reserve officer training program the Criminal Justice program funded a quarterly stipend position dedicated to coordinating certification and other regulatory issues with POST When reserve officer classes were offered asmall Lead Instructor stipend was in place to compensate the instructor for duties outside of the classroom such as creating and submitting official expanded course outlines certifying hours through POST and other miscellaneous tasks Both of these positions were eliminated when the college ended its affiliation with POST CriminalJustice Program Planning Report 4 June 2008

10 The Criminal Justice program is exclusively staffed by adjunct faculty All CRJ instructors are currently employed in law enforcement or court positions This real world expertise is definitely enhancing the curriculum and is exposing students not only to the philosophical underpinnings of the criminal justice system but also providing a realistic preview of employment issues in our own community In the last eight years the college has been able to find qualified instructors who are willing to teach due to their passion for the field and a desire to contribute to the future of the profession Facilities The Criminal Justice courses are taught in the evening and quite often at the high school While not an ideal educational setting the courses are nevertheless consistently enrolled Many Criminal Justice instructors are using PowerPoint and or interactive CD curriculum packages for their classes thereby necessitating access to the related technology Equipment Technology Due to the lecture based nature of the Criminal Justice courses required for a certificate or degree the program at LTCC has required very little in the way of instructional equipment As mentioned above instructors use PowerPoint and textbook driven curriculum packages that require a computer and projection unit Access to such equipment is subject to availability when classes are scheduled at the high school When the POST reserve officer classes were being offered equipment needs weresubstantial Examples of required instructional equipment included firearms holsters batons and handcuffs VTEA funding routinely covered these expenses As mentioned previously the POST classes are no longer being offered and therefore the cost per student in the Criminal Justice program has decreased considerably Supplies Once again when the POST reserve officer classes were being offered supply needs were substantial Examples of required instructional supplies included ammunition and targets funded through VTEA The supply needs for the Criminal Justice program are now centered exclusively on project management and general office supplies Income Fcpenses The cost of servicing onefull time equivalent student EYES for the Criminal Justice program was2168 in ranking itas the 13th lowest cost program at LTCC The cost per FTES for the other43 instructional programs range from a high of Ethnic Studies per FTES to a low of 537 Environmental Science per FTES with acollege wide median cost per FTES of 2969 In income generated by the program has exceeded expenses by an approximate 31ratio Criminal Justice Program Planning Report 5 June 2008

11 WSCH FTEF The Criminal Justice program is instructed exclusively by adjunct faculty This is helping to keep the cost of salary and associated benefits low Annually LTCC offers approximately 24 units of Criminal Justice courses This equates to 50 FIEF full time equivalent faculty Instructor load or WSCH FIEF is a productivity measure of the number of students a faculty member comes in contact with in class each week It is calculated on the basis of afull time equivalent faculty member The instructor load for Criminal Justice at 166 in is considered below average in comparison to other instructional programs average was 250 The instructor load for the other 43 instructional programs in ranged from a high of 415 Italian to a low of 0 ESL Latin Russian The Criminal Justice program utilizes six adjunct faculty with a broad base of expertise The vocational nature of many of the courses is enhanced by instructors who are currently employed resumes for the program and in Human Resources in CriminalJustice related careers The instructors are on file in the Director of Vocational Education soffice F CURRICULUM The Criminal Justice program currently culminates in an Associate degree 90 units or a Certificate of Achievement 36 units The Certificate of Achievement is considered a stepping stone into an entry level position and allows students to thoroughly explore the career options before committing to a degree or specific career path Each year the curriculum for the Criminal Justice program is reviewed by the Criminal Justice Advisory Committee The committee believes that the curriculum is solid and generally reflects the needs of Criminal Justice professionals in our region and the state of California The Advisory Committee also affirms that the breadth of course offerings within the program is appropriate and consistent within the mission of a community college All Criminal Justice courses are regularly updated and reviewed for compliance with Title V requirements POST reserve officer program enrollments have been carefully monitored overthe past five years Students need at a bare minimum to complete Level II training in order to obtain an unpaid position as a Reserve Officer To date only five students have made it to this level and of these five only one has obtained employment in the public safety field The Lead Instructor for this program Lt Les Lovell reported at the last Criminal Justice Advisory Committee meeting that the challenges related to keeping current on expanded course outlines and certification packages are making it nearly impossible for LTCC to continue to offer the courses Due to the many POST regulatory and curricular changes as well as the considerable expense behind the program related to required supplies and equipment the advisory committee decided that it is not fiscally responsible to continue offering the courses POST has been officially notified that LTCC has gone dark with the reserve officer training program and the degree and certificate structure has been adjusted to reflect the inactivation of these courses Criminal Justice Program Planning Report 6 June 2008

12 Associate Degree Requirements As mentioned previously inactivation of the POST courses necessitated a slight adjustment of the Criminal Justice degree and certificate programs The advisory committee would like to monitor degree and certificate completions over the next three years to ensure that the current structure is meeting student needs If degree and certificate completions do not improve in the upcoming years the advisory committee may recommend returning to a single area of concentration AA DEGREE STRUCTURE A General Education Requirement B Core Courses for the AA Degree in Criminal Justice 24 units distributed as follows CRJ1O1 Introduction to Criminal Justice 4 units CRJ1O2 Criminal Law 4 units CRJ1O4 Criminal Procedures 4 units CRJ1O5 Community and Human Relations 4 units CRJ11O Introduction to Corrections 4 units SOC1O6 Crime and Society 4 units Area of Concentration Choose one option 1 Criminal Justice Foundations Select 3 courses from the following CRJ1O3 Introduction to Evidence 4 units CRJ1O8 Juvenile Law and Procedures 4 units CRJ112 Introduction to Investigation 4 units CRJ113 Introduction to Probation and Parole 4 units Total units in major including core 36 2 Law Enforcement 11 units distributed as follows CRJ1O7 Police Field Operations 4 units CRJ1O9 Traffic Law Enforcement Investigation 3 units CRJ112 Introduction to Investigation 4 units Total units in major including core 35 3 Corrections Community Supervision 12 units distributed as follows CRJ1O8 Juvenile Law and Procedures 4 units CRJ112 Introduction to Investigation 4 units CRJ113 Introduction to Probation Parole 4 units Total units in major including core 36 C Elective Units to bring the total to 90 Criminal Justice Program Planning Report 7 June 2008

13 A review of five Criminal Justice programs offered by other California Community Colleges Sierra College Butte College College of the Siskiyous Sacramento City College Menocino College indicates that our required coursework is generally comparable to the requirements set forth in these other college programs There has been some interest expressed by students to develop more online course offerings see Student Survey results in Section J The Criminal Justice Advisory Committee discussed this idea at their fall 2007 meeting and decided to revisit the issue in 2008 due to a concern that enrollments would not support an online program at this point in time The committee believes the to face interactions with guest speakers from local law enforcement agencies remain as an extremely valuable component of program Certificate of Achievement The current Certificate ofachievement in Criminal Justice mirrors the degree requirements with the exception of General Education units and entails completion of 36 units TwoYear Schetlule The entire Criminal Justice program may currently be completed within atwo year time period The reserve officer classes have not been offered in the last three years the program is officially dark with POST and the degree and certificate have been adjusted accordingly in the catalog A few students have expressed a desire to complete the Criminal Justice certificate in one year instead of two see Student Survey results Section J but the Criminal Justice Advisory Committee believes the student population is not sufficient to support a one year schedule at this time Following is the current two year plan for the Criminal Justice program FALL 2007 WINTER 2008 SPRING 2008 CRJ 101 CRJ 104 CRJ102 CRJ 113 CRJ 105 CRJ FALL 2008 WINTER 2009 SPRING 2009 CRJ 101 CRJ 103 CRJ 104 CRJ 109 CRJ 110 CRJ 107 CRJ 112 G SCHEDULING OF CLASSES AND OR AVAILABILITY OF SPACE and are Criminal Justice courses are scheduled based on the two year plan described previously reliably enrolled although class size rarely exceeds 12 students Many of the Criminal Justice classes are offered alternate years The Advisory Committee believes that students can reasonably expect to complete a degree or certificate in two years All Criminal Justice core classes are scheduled in the evening typically one night per week in four hour blocks A recent Criminal Justice Program Planning Report 8 June 2008

14 survey of Criminal Justice students indicates that 96 believe this schedule is convenient but a twice aweek course offering may be piloted in to further gauge student support Day classes are not possible at this point in time due to the busy work schedules of the instructors Local agencies have suggested weekend workshops but instructor availability and commitment to teaching are on going challenges As mentioned previously there is some interest in offering Criminal Justice classes on a yearly schedule to facilitate degree and certificate completions The Criminal Justice Advisory Committee is concerned that the student pool for Criminal Justice classes will not supportcone year rotation A discussion regarding the availability of space for Criminal Justice courses is found in Section E In general both the students and instructors have become increasingly dissatisfied with the instructional space provided at South Tahoe High School and are asking the Director of Vocational Education to advocate strongly for classes to be scheduled more regularly at the main LTCC campus in order to accommodate PowerPoint and or interactive CD curriculum When classes are scheduled at the high school out of necessity the Director of Vocational Education will request a classroom that allows access to PowerPoint technology every week during the quarter H DOCUMENTS The following documents were reviewed in conjunction with the program planning process for the Criminal Justice program 1 College Catalog Course Descriptions A review of these descriptions indicates that they reflect the content of the courses as they are taught at thistime All Criminal Justice courses are on a regular review cycle Prerequisites None of the Criminal Justice courses listed in the catalog require a prerequisite Graduation Requirements The current requirements for earning an AA degree in Criminal Justice address general education requirements These graduation requirements seem sufficiently broad to ensure a general understanding of the Criminal Justice profession 2 Quarterly Schedules CRJ Class Listings The descriptions of Criminal Justice classes in the quarterly schedules have been reviewed and are appropriate to the courses being taught at this time They are similar to the catalog descriptions To date we have had no known confusion from students about the scheduling of Criminal Justice classes 3 Counseling Materials Brochures The brochures available in Student Services were redesigned and now contain job descriptions and labor market data VTEA and Tech Prep funding was targeted in to translate the vocational education rack cards into Spanish Criminal Justice Program Planning Report 9 June 2008

15 This is assisting with outreach initiatives aimed atnon native English speaking students Counseling Sheets Each year the Counseling department works with faculty and administrators to review and revise the counseling sheets These sheets list the requirements for each degree and certificate in the discipline and are referenced extensively by students and counselors alike The Criminal Justice counseling sheets areup to date and reflect the requirements as they stand at this time 4 LTCC Website The Lake Tahoe Community College website information for Criminal Justice was improved in to include career preparation information and links to relevant agencies and certifying bodies The college website also provides information regarding the Student Learning Outcomes for the Associate Degree in Criminal Justice I STUDENT DEMOGRAPHICS Gender The most recent publication of Graphically Speaking indicates that the current college wide ratio of female to male students is 55 to 45 The female to male ratio for students in the Criminal Justice program is currently 53 to47 This difference from the college wide ratio is probably not statistically significant Age Campus wide the average age for all students is 365 years The typical Criminal Justice student is significantly younger than this college average 24 years old The Criminal Justice Advisory Committee believes that this is reflective ofthe career entry nature of the coursesie they attract students who are interested in pursuing entry level employment In Criminal Justice students fell into the following age groupings Under l8 6 Age Age Age Age 60 0 Ethnicity The following comparisons are made between Criminal Justice students and students at LTCC campus wide for The Criminal Justice program attracts primarily Caucasian students Outreach initiatives such as the website enhancements and Spanish rack cards discussed in Section H may increase enrollment of students from diverse ethnic backgrounds Due to the small sample size for Criminal Justice N 83 students in caution is urged when comparing ethnic breakdowns with college wide data Criminal Justice Program Planning Report 10 June 2008

17 completions are not especially healthy especially when compared to similarly sized vocational programs Course Completions A review of Criminal Justice courses taught overthe past five academic years through shows an average course completion rate of841range This is higher than the campus average of774 Completion is defined as the number of courses students complete with an A B C or CR grade Update on Student Learning Outcomes Student Learning Outcomes SLOs are the essential knowledge skills competencies and abilities that a student will gain as the result of his or her engagement in a particular course program or college service Adjunct faculty in the Criminal Justice program have specified these outcomes in the courses official outlines of record Work is currently underway to further document these SLOs in measurable terms All Criminal Justice courses will be submitted to the SLO committee for formal review and approval in The SLOs for the Criminal Justice degree and certificate are as follows 1 Demonstrate a broad understanding of the historical perspective cultural evolution and the origin of criminal law 2 Describe the steps ofthe legal process includingpre arrest arrest through trial sentencing appeal and correctional procedures 3 Describe the influences and consequences of crime including social and psychological factors 4 Appreciate multiculturalism as it relates to the criminal justice system 5 Describe the importance of professional ethics in the major areas of the criminal justice system ielaw courts law enforcement and corrections community supervision and 6 Acquire the skills and knowledge to assist them in obtaining entry level employment in a variety of areas including the court system law enforcement and corrections probation Students completing vocational and occupational certificates and degrees must demonstrate technical and professional competencies that meet employment and industry standards The Criminal Justice Advisory Committee affirms that our curriculum is properly preparing students for entry level positions in the court system law enforcement and community supervisionie probation and parole The College relies on this committee to ensure that the curriculum and learning objectives are aligned with the competencies necessary to succeed in these demanding professions Criminal Justice Program Planning Report 12 June 2008

18 Other Measures of Student Success Course sequence and term persistence data for the Criminal Justice program are not currently available Anecdotal evidence is provided by the instructors in the program who report that approximately 50 of the students in any given course have taken previous courses in Criminal Justice Since Criminal Justice courses do not have prerequisites students may enter the program during any quarter Data is currently not available regarding job placement for our students Anecdotally we are aware of a number of students completing their AA degree or certificate and obtaining entry level positions Data does not exist for specifically tracking Criminal Justice students who transfer to four year colleges or universities Each year the Criminal Justice Advisory Committee reviews the program s curriculum for adherence to current industry standards and answers three questions mandated by the California Community Colleges System Office 1 Does the program meet a documented labor market demand The committee consistently answers yes to thisquestion There are definitely positions available for program graduates Continuing education needs are being met and the AA degree is an essential stepping stone toward a Bachelor sdegree 2 Does it represent unnecessary duplication ofother manpower training in the area The Advisory Committee is not aware of other Criminal Justice programs in our immediate area 3 Is it ofdemonstrated effectiveness as measured by the employment and completion success ofits students The Advisory Committee routinely answers yes to this question The committee is aware of several students who have finished the program and received positions in the community or region and local employers continue to supply the program with motivated students Survey Results Current Former Students Students enrolled in the fall 2007 winter 2008 spring 2008 quarter Criminal Justice courses CRJ101 CRJ102 CRJ103 CRJ104 CRJ105 CRJ108and CRJ113 were surveyed to gather information regarding their experiences and perspectives relative to the program Total enrollment for these classes was surveys were returned32 1 Approximately how many Criminal Justice classes have you taken at LTCC What is your primary educational goal Please check only one response Obtain a certificate in Criminal Justice 3 Obtain an AA degree in Criminal Justice 13 Criminal Justice Program Planning Report 13 June 2008
