In an ongoing program to ensure that law enforcement personnel have opportunities to advance their careers by offering them expanded educational opportunities, the International Union of Police Associations has teamed up with Brighton College, a provider of online distance educational services.
Of particular interest to the I.U.P.A. are the associate degree and diploma programs in the paralegal and criminal justice fields. In announcing the partnership, a spokesperson for Brighton College said, “We believe that a strategic partnership with the International Union of Police Associations will be mutually beneficial to all parties involved as well as the law enforcement community.”
The partnership will include co-branding with the I.U.P.A. to increase the union’s exposure among the law enforcement community including a Newsletter/Blog Contributor to I.U.P.A. as well as providing an Education Partnership “micro-site” website to link the I.U.P.A. / BC partner updates, news, and upcoming events
The I.U.P.A., originally chartered in 1979,as the only AFL-CIO chartered labor union to exclusively represent law enforcement officers and other support personnel has aggressively pursued educational opportunities for its more than100,000 law enforcement personnel (one out of every four eligible) from line officers up to first line supervisors as well as civilian employees. International President Sam Cabral cited their most recent partnership saying, “We have always recognized that the quickest and best way to progress in a law enforcement career is for an officer to advance their education. This not only improves their performance in the field, but enhances their prospects for promotion. We are looking forward to this new and important partnership.”
