Employment Outlook

The job outlook for security, corrections, and law enforcement is favorable through 2018. These occupations should experience a 7 to 13% increase.

In the Susquahanna Valley, criminal justice is the second largest career behind health occupations. Any student looking for local employment should consider a criminal justice career!
