The College of Criminal Justice Education started its operation in June 1969 with Dr. Simeon D. Luz as the first dean. It was granted government recognition in June 1975. Its first-ever course offering, two-year Police Science and Technology received government recognition on June 14, 1983.
In 1990, the curriculum allowed the students to choose their area of specialization. The following year, the college applied for accreditation and was granted Level I status. In 1993, the college added Security and Safety Management to its course offerings.
To prove that the college has further enhanced its quality of education, it applied for Level II accredited status, which was successfully attained on August 10 of the same year. Later in 1997, it was granted level II re-accredited status.
The college is continuously improving its learning facilities. Since 1996, it started to operate an in-house review center in preparation for the licensure examination. The College is determined to preserve its gains and continue to enrich its programs.
