The Criminal Justice Training Center (CJTC) provides high-quality education and training programs for the continuing professionalism of the criminal justice system. The CJTC is one of only 17 schools in the commonwealth certified to offer Act 120 training, a 919-hour program that qualifies graduates to be municipal police officers. The police academy is located at the Indiana campus at IUP with satellite locations at California University of Pennsylvania and Robert Morris University.

The center also offers programs for in-service personnel in fulfillment of annual mandatory continuing education requirements and nonmandatory courses such as Municipal Police Training Officer (FTO), Perceptual Driving (EVOC), Municipal Police Firearms Instructor, and Instructor Development. Lethal Weapons Training, Act 235, provides the basic requirements and mandatory recertification for armed security personnel.
