The decision of whether or not to pursue a bachelor’s or a master’s degree is a personal one. “You have to do it for yourself,” advises Paulette Laubsch, DPA, Associate Professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University. FDU was established in 1942 and is New Jersey’s largest private university with students worldwide.
As discussed in “Continuing Education for Law Enforcement – Part One,” the benefits of obtaining a college degree are many, but they do not come easily. The time, effort and, likely, the money officers invest will be their own. In Part Two, Police and Security News examines how to make wise investments.
Where Should You Go to School?

University of Phoenix, a private university offering courses online and at more than 100 locations nationwide, was founded in 1976 to provide working adults with higher education options at convenient class times.
