The College of Criminal Justice Education (CCJE)fosters high concepts of citizenry and leadership by instilling in its students an understanding of the Constitutional guarantees, due process of law, and respect for human rights.

The College prepares students for a career in the three primary units under the Department of the Interior and Local Government – the Philippine National Police (PNP), Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) and Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP).

Other career opportunities include employment in National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), Bureau of Corrections, Parole and Probation Administration, Bureau of Customs, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and in private agencies as forensic experts.

In CCJE, we educate, train and become of service to our students by integrating values of making God as the center of all achievements and accomplishments which helps in transforming and inculcating the morals of service in doing the work professionally.

The College also molds students towards global competitiveness in their field of specialization by observing the basic Constitutional limitations which leads to a very professional practice of law enforcement.

CCJE’s empowerment continues as we are entrusted by the Brother President to directly supervise the Bahay Pag-asa Dasmariñas wherein our competent staff and volunteers administer a holistic formation program for children in conflict with the law, provide competent and committed legal assistance and a post-release program is envisioned.
