Currently, at the APSU Center @ Fort Campbell, APSU offers an Associate of Applied Science in Police Administration, which is directed toward basic law enforcement education, as opposed to the new four-year degree, which would focus on homeland security and terrorism.

The Tennessee Board of Regents approved the program last September.
