Along with classroom lectures, whenever possible, students in the SBBCollege Criminal Justice degree program participate in hands-on training. Using the theory and skills learned in the criminal justice classes in an actual hands-on setting can help students prepare for their careers in the criminal justice field.
Students in the crime scene investigation class at SBBC used their CSI training to help solve a staged double crime scene on campus. The first crime scene had students collect evidence from a disheveled room with a victim, while the second crime scene had students looking for clues in an outdoor setting.
Students carefully detailed any evidence found and also worked together to put a story behind the crime. An observant student left no stone unturned as he decided to look inside a trash can. The trash held a vital piece of evidence - a gun - that was crucial to solving the crime.
The criminal justice program at Santa Barbara Business College prepares students for entry-level employment in security and other related criminal justice careers in Southern California.

The criminal justice college program is offered at the SBBCollege Bakersfield college campus, the SBBC campus in Santa Maria, Ca, the Rancho Mirage campus in the Coachella Valley, Ventura and is even offered as an online criminal justice associate’s and bachelor’s degree program.
