05 Oct Tuition Assistance Program for Sworn Officers
Code 3 Association granted the Alexandria Police Foundation (APF) funds for their Tuition Assistance Program for sworn officers in February 2017. After receiving the funds, APF formed a committee of 3 board members to create a policy for the program. The committee worked hard, and based the requirements similar to what the city requires for their tuition assistance for all city employees.
The committee set a limit of $1,000 each for tuition assistance starting with the fall 2017 semester. APF received 4 applications, and approved all four. The payments to the applicants will be made at the end of the semester upon successful completion of their course with a grade of A or B. Two of the recipients are working toward their Bachelor’s degrees, and two are working towards their Master’s degree. Each officer attends prestigious area universities.
