The Diploma Program was originally designed as a two-year program, with more instructional hours than a three-year university program. To facilitate students graduating in a shorter time period, the program has been compressed to less than seven months without reducing the quality or instruction. The long summer break and spring break of the traditional university has been eliminated so that students can graduate and obtain law enforcement employment as soon as possible.
