NY/NJ Asian-American Law Enforcement Advisory Committee Signs Agreement with FDU’s Petrocelli College
Global Educational Opportunities for Asian-Americans
Teaneck, NJ (June 18, 2008) —The New York/New Jersey Asian-American Law Enforcement Advisory Committee and Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Petrocelli College have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to form an educational partnership. This is the first such agreement between the Committee and an institution of higher education. The group has a similar agreement with the New Jersey State Chiefs of Police Association.
The agreement includes increasing global educational opportunities for Asian-Americans by offering courses with FDU international partners, promoting seminars to expand knowledge of homeland security, cyber crime, and administrative science and encouraging members of the Asian-American community to consider a career in law enforcement or a related field.
Haruhisa (Luke) Higuchi, President, and David Chong, President Emeritus, represented the Asian-American Law Enforcement Advisory Committee. Joo Min Lee, Consul, Consulate General of the Republic of Korea, New York City, attended.
“ FDU has a long tradition in working with law enforcement,” said Kenneth T. Vehrkens, Dean of Petrocelli College, “and we are proud to provide educational opportunities for Asian and Asian-American law enforcement officers, By establishing this relationship, we are expanding opportunities in degree completion programs, certificate programs and graduate programs.”
