Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Partners with Chancellor University

September 25, 2012

Las Vegas, NV, and Seven Hills, OH -- Chancellor University is pleased to announce its recent partnership with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) to provide continuing education for its public safety officers, civilian employees and their family members at a discounted tuition rate.

LVMPD employees and family members can earn an Associate’s, Bachelor’s or Master’s degree at a fraction of their normal cost in any of Chancellor’s available course tracks, including Criminal Justice, Public Administration, Paralegal Studies, Information Technology, Accounting, Finance, Social Media Management, Business Administration, Health Services Management and more.

As part of the agreement, Chancellor University is accepting up to 27 transfer credit hours to be used towards earning a degree from the University.

“We’re very excited to embark on this partnership with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department,” said Kevan Ford, Senior Director of Admissions & Development at Chancellor University. “Providing the members of the LVMPD with the tools for educational advancement through Chancellor’s programs is beneficial not only for themselves in their own careers, but to society as a whole.”

According to the Fraternal Order of Police Journal (July, 2012), an officer with a degree is likely to stay with his or her agency longer and be better suited to take on higher-level positions as they become available. Today’s patrol officer with a degree may be tomorrow’s command officer.
