The program is designed to assist police officers in their pursuit of higher education degrees and will reimburse sworn police officers who have completed courses offered by a regionally accredited university or college in a degree program that will increase their job-applicable skills and abilities. Officers must attain a B or higher grade in the course and maintain a 3.0 or higher GPA for the semester. In addition, the officers must agree to continued employment with the agency for at least 36 months after reimbursement.
In announcing the programs continuance Tom Murphy, Foundation President stated: “The Foundation is committed to the growth and development of our Palm Beach Gardens Police Department and of its officers. We believe
that this program is beneficial not only to those officers who elect to improve their job performance and increase their skills through education, but also to the overall operations of the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department.”
