Fitchburg State Creates Police Training Program for Criminal Justice Students

NEC member Fitchburg State University recently signed an agreement with the Executive Director of the Municipal Police Training Committee (MPTC) to create a police training program for Criminal Justice students.

Criminal Justice students can earn their Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree, and Police certification in five years to become eligible to work at Massachusetts municipal police departments. The first students eligible for this program graduate next month and can begin their Master’s program the summer after they graduate.

“This program provides a set of skills that are not afforded to many other students interested in the policing world,” said Fitchburg State University President Richard Lapidus. “I think we provide these students who come through this program with a real head start in their careers.”

The New England Council congratulates Fitchburg State for their collaboration  with the MPTC to provide this unique training program for students. Read more in Worcester Business Journal and Sentinel & Enterprise.
