Most are employed at the Philippine National Police and a small percentage is in different law enforcement agencies such as the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, the Bureau of Fire Protection, the Armed Forces of the Philippines and security agencies. The academe turns out to be one of the promising employment locations of the criminology graduates. They are employed instructors or deans of criminology schools.
