I did that one years ago. I stopped because its not recognized by anyone.
Distance education such as these are no replacement for actual institutions.
Dont waste your time.
My partner is formerly of HR.
These degrees/diplomas are not recognized and score you no points on your application.

Not sure if this is something that might interest you.
I'm a wizard and that looks f****ed up.

Yet sitting in a lecture with 499 other students is good "human interaction" when you do nothing but listening to professor talk for three hours?
I know of several police studies programs in Ontario where the instructors are all retired or current serving provincial or municipal police officers. They come from all areas (vice, gangs, recruiting, sex crimes, traffic, marine, mounted, courts, intelligence, public safety etc).
Sure, the course material might not be that great. What you may learn from the instructors personal experiences, however, is worth it's weight in gold. They might also give you a character reference when applying for a role in the future. To me, that's worth it too. You will also learn police acts, the criminal code and hopefully work on your fitness which all assists you in the future.
Do you need a police studies, police foundations, criminology or criminal justice diploma or degree? No.
Can you derive some value out of it? Sure.
