Higher Education Programs in Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice.
Tenney, Charles W., Jr.
In 1966 the Office of Law Enforcement Assistance undertook to encourage higher education for law enforcement through a series of curriculum development grants to 2- and 4-year institutions throughout the nation. Altogether, 28 colleges and universities received 48 grants totalling nearly $1 million. First priority was given to schools in states that had no higher education programs in criminal justice. Second priority was given to colleges in metropolitan areas without such programs. Funds were supplied to 14 institutions to develop 2-year programs, to 8 institutions to develop 4-year programs, and to 6 institutions to develop both 2- and 4-year curricula. Of these, 15 of the programs funded were the first of their kind in their state. All but 1 of the grantees developed and now have in operation a degree program in law enforcement or criminal justice. This report is a review and analysis of these projects. (Author/HS)
