When people call 911...
It takes a special kind of person to respond.
When that call is made, it connects to one of the more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies and one of the more than 461,000 police officers starts that direction. Police officers make a difference in the community every single day. It takes a special kind of person to raise their hand and pledge to defend the defenseless.
Our Faculty - Real, Relevant, Committed to You:
The Law Enforcement Program at Vincennes University is committed to preparing students for future endeavors within the field of criminal justice and beyond.
Lambda Alpha Epsilon
Many of our students choose to participate in our professional law enforcement fraternity.
Vincennes University’s Upsilon Chapter of Lambda Alpha Epsilon, The American Criminal Justice Association, is one of over 200 LAE chapters nationwide. Originally started in 1934, LAE is one of the first criminal justice associations in the country. LAE is a student led organization that any public service major is welcome to participate in. Members have the opportunity to speak with experts in the field and travel to professional locations around the state of Indiana.
In years past, LAE members have had speakers from departments ranging from local to federal level law enforcement agencies. They have traveled to locations such as the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility, the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy, the Terre Haute Police Training Facility, and many more.
Students interested in participating in LAE can speak with any of our law enforcement faculty members and attend one of the weekly meetings to get involved. All of the Vincennes University faculty are members of LAE and serve as advisors.
