The NYPD Leadership Program at John Jay College of Criminal Justice provides New York City police officers and supervisors with skills that enhance public safety service delivery and police management in a multiracial and multicultural city. The NYPD Leadership Program is a tuition exempt Friday academic program for active NYPD Uniformed Members of the Service (UMOS). The program is designed for both undergraduate and graduate study.

OVERVIEW

The New York City Council with the Mayor's support authorized John Jay College of Criminal Justice to partner with the NYPD to provide eligible NYPD Uniformed Members of the Service with a program of 12 credits that leads to a Certificate of Completion.

The benefits of the NYPD Leadership Program include:

1. A full scholarship that covers tuition, fees, and textbook costs
2. A Certificate of Completion
3. Apply the 12 credits towards a Bachelor's or Master's degree program at John Jay College (click here to learn more about the applicability of courses to degree program)                                                   4. Academic advisement and support
5. Personal and career development counseling
6. Use of all campus facilities (i.e. fitness center, Lloyd Sealy Library, state-of-the art computer labs, swimming pool, etc.)

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

All active NYPD Uniformed Members of the Service are eligible for the NYPD Leadership Program.

NOTE: If you are a retired NYPD Uniformed Member of the Service, you are encouraged to apply to John Jay College by following the instructions at the In-service Application Process page. If you are an NYPD Non-Uniformed Member of the Service (i.e. school safety agent, traffic enforcement agent, police administrative aide, etc.), or from a law enforcement agency other than NYPD, please refer to the Undergraduate Admissions Prospective Students page and click on the application process that applies to you.

PROGRAM DESIGN

The NYPD Leadership Program courses meet once a week on Fridays at John Jay College.  Courses are offered during morning, afternoon and evening periods in the fall and spring semesters.  It is essential that applicants submit all required documents and register as early as possible (see the Steps to Enroll and Application Deadlines for detailed information). Please refer to the NYPD Leadership Course Outline for detailed course information.

APPLICATION DEADLINES

NOTE:  Application submissions do NOT guarantee registration for the program as it is first-come, first-serve, based on available funding.  Therefore, it is very important that all applications are submitted on a timely manner.  Incomplete applications will NOT be processed until all required documents are submitted.
