The Executive Committee of the Morris County Police Chiefs Association toured the Dover Campus of Berkeley College prior to conducting their meeting there on Thursday, January 12, 2017.

“The needs of law enforcement are always changing with the times,” said Keith Licata, President of the Morris County Police Chiefs Association Executive Board, and Chief, Mt. Arlington Police Department. “Keeping our officers as educated as possible with new methods of education or new topics of education is very important, so they can do the best possible job for the people they serve in the community. Programs such as what Berkeley offers enable them to move forward with their education and always progress.”

 

The tour was led by Mary Ann Santora, Director of Admissions, Berkeley College, Dover, NJ, who provided an overview of the College and the special scholarship program for law enforcement professionals. She also addressed other careers students and graduates are prepared for, such as nursing, surgical technology and surgical processing technician, as well as medical assistants.

 

“Collaboration is important for our students and graduates as well as for our law enforcement officials, to make sure our working professionals are as prepared for success in their careers as they can be,” said Michael McAteer, DBA, Interim Dean, Berkeley College School of Professional Studies. One of the most popular majors among students at Berkeley College is Justice Studies – Criminal Justice, which prepares graduates for careers in newly relevant areas that include information technology, legal studies and management.
