  • LE Scholarships for Grad School?

    I have been an LE officer for 8 years and decided to go back to school and get my masters. The problem is that my agency doesn't contribute a dime for education. I was wondering if anyone knows of any scholarships or grants specifically for officers already in law enforcement? I have researched it myself and found a couple that offer a couple hundred bucks but it is mostly for kids who plan to go into LE (Explorers, Boys state, etc.)

      Get a Masters in what? It won't help you be a better cop, it will only qualify you to teach at a Jr. College somewhere.

      Never heard of any. If you want to go places, get a Masters in "Public Adminstration." You already know by now enough about law enforcement techniques, I would think.

        Gene has a valid point. Why do you want a master's? If you desire to teach you will need it and it is "preferred" for most command officer positions, but other than that, I don't know what it is going to do for you.

          Well with my agency everyone has atleast a BA so a MA would help for future promotions. Also a few of the officers teach part time (Community Colleges in Charleston) and that is something I am thinking about doing in the future.
