A Tuition Exempt Friday Academic Program for NYPD Officers
Enhancing Police Leadership in a Multiracial & Multicultural City
"The NYPD courses remind us (police officers) of our priority and commitment to the public we serve.
The courses teach us how to behave in a respectable and professional manner when dealing with the community." Former NYPD Student
The NYPD Leadership Program provides New York City (NYC) police officers and supervisors with skills that enhance public safety service delivery and police management in a multiracial and multicultural city. The NYC Council with the Mayor's support authorized John Jay College of Criminal Justice to partner with the NYPD to provide eligible NYC uniformed police personnel with a package of four credit bearing college courses. The NYPD Leadership Program is designed to give undergraduate and graduate participants an understanding of the multicultural population they serve as well as an enhanced capability for service-orientated leadership in the supervisory ranks. The program is free for sworn NYPD uniformed members of the service. The funding covers tuition and textbook fees. The scope and duration of the program are dependent on continued funding.
The program is designed for undergraduate students and non degree graduate students. Both programs of study meet in the fall and spring semesters on Friday morning, afternoon and evening. Students will have access to a full service educational environment created especially for NYPD students. Academic and career development counseling are provided throughout the semester. Students may apply NYPD Program credits toward their Bachelor's and Master's degrees at John Jay College. Students successfully completing the sequence of four courses will be awarded a certificate of completion.
