National Police Week

Police officers are the cornerstone of every community. They’ve vowed to be a part of the line that separates anarchy from civilized society, order from chaos. It’s a thin blue line built by their extraordinary efforts and sacrifice required to keep us all safe.

“In my military career, I learned firsthand that when justice and security are ignored, local societies suffer. As such, I believe it’s deeply important to honor our law enforcement heroes for their selfless service to our communities.”

Major General (Ret.) James “Spider” Marks, executive dean of the College of Criminal Justice and Security

National Police Week, May 11–17, serves to remind us all just how much we count on the daily dedication of these courageous men and women. At the University of Phoenix® College of Criminal Justice and Security, we are privileged to be a part of the educational journey of many current and future law enforcement professionals. Please join us in honoring all the heroes of law enforcement during National Police Week 2015.
