|The Institute for Academy Management, sponsored by the UD's Division of Continuing Education, has received an Award of Excellence from Region 2 of the University Continuing Education Association. This is the seventh time in the last eight years.
UD has been recognized by the association for its professional development and noncredit programs.
The Institute for Academy Management is an annual, week-long, professional development program for police officers who administer a police training academy.
"We believe UD is the only university offering such a police academy institute," Joyce Hunter, program manager for law enforcement and criminal justice programs, said.
"The law enforcement officers attending our institute are usually the highest ranking officers in their organization, and they come from all over the nation to participate in this program."
The institute offers courses in training and liability issues, recruiting issues, physical fitness training and other topics related to the management of a police academy.
Other continuing education criminal justice offerings at UD include a Community Policing Certificate, a Leadership and Public Management for Law Enforcement Professionals Post-baccalaureate Certificate, and customized law enforcement training programs, like the Candidate Preparation Program which was recently designed for the Wilmington Police Department.
