PINEVILLE – Full-time law enforcement and first responders, who enroll in Louisiana College’s criminal justice program, will receive a 20 percent discount on their tuition the school announced a Tuesday, Jan. 15 press conference.
“I personally have a desire to help more men and women who are serving us – both protecting and preserving our communities and doing a wonderful job – to enable them to receive a degree in criminal justice from Louisiana College,” LC President Rick Brewer said during the press conference. “We hope it will encourage men and women to come and get this great education that’s Christ-centered and focused toward making a difference in our community and beyond.”
The 127-academic credit hour criminal justice program equips students with the analytical and critical thinking skills in the areas of crime prevention, justice and public safety. Students can take classes on campus, on-line or a combination of the two.
LC Professor of Criminal Justice Joshua Joy Dara called the partnership between LC and the criminal justice field a perfect union.
“Our US Constitution, our Bill of Rights and our court system are all linked into the Word of God,” said Dara, who also serves as pastor of Zion Hill Church Family in Pineville. “What a perfect match to see law enforcement officers and first responders come into a Christian college and having the best institution to train them.”
