Governors State University is helping local law enforcement agencies meet the need for well educated professionals through its Master of Public Administration (MPA) program.
The university plans to offer a MPA cohort at the Illinois State Police District 5 Headquarters in Lockport. The cohort program will allow police, fire, and public administration professionals throughout the region to complete a degree together, at a single, central location. The college has successfully offered a similar cohort program in Lansing and is currently delivering programs in Orland Park, Oak Forest, and Frankfort, IL.
