Criminal Justice

This competition is for students preparing to become police officers or to work in other areas of criminal justice. It uses both a written examination and practical exercises to evaluate the competitors’ abilities and knowledge of the field. The competitors are scored on their knowledge and application of U.S. constitutional law, written and verbal communications skills, and their ability to handle an entry-level law enforcement position.

The SkillsUSA Illinois Championships follow the current edition of the SkillsUSA National Technical Standards. These are available to professional members (advisors and teachers) following membership registration.
