    Hi cops

    I want to start with saying thanks a lot for the service you are providing for the public and the awsome job you are doing.

    I have few questions. I have a dream of becoming an officer, so I started taking online education, a Criminal Justice degree with Penn Foster college. I came to find out later that most employers dont accept an online degree and it has to be through a campus based college. What do you think guys?

    My second question is: Is learner's permit a moving or non moving violation?

    Thanks a bunch

    Any college credit needs to be from an accredited school. There are several online schools that would be just fine.

    In Iowa it would be a moving violation. A serious moving violation.

      There are a lot of cops with on-line degrees. People with late starts and aren't always afforded the opportunity to go to school while living at home without working. If your college is nationally accredited you should be good to go. In some states like mine the credits can come from either regionally accredited colleges or nationally accredited.

        Violation of Driver License Restriction. It's a mover, and a serious one. On line education is accepted by virtually any agency I can think of. The caution is that the school be accredited. That's the first thing you should check for.

          The college is called Pennfoster and its nationally accredited. I heard most agencies accept only regionally accredited.

          Thanks again for your help.

              It's accredited for Independent study...and just by looking at Penn foster...it doesn't look like you get a degree in CJ, you only obtain 21 credits towards a CJ degree and only an Associates at that?
