SKYCTC partners with Bowling Green Law enforcement academy for education

BOWLING GREEN Ky.-Bowling Green city officials, along with representatives from a local college and Bowling Green law enforcement met Friday morning to sign an educational agreement partnering Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College and the Bowling Green Law Enforcement Academy.

This agreement allows academic credit to be awarded to recruits who complete the Bowling Green Law Enforcement Academy. Police recruits can take five general education courses at SKYCTC to complete their associate’s for applied science degree. The city will pay the tuition for these courses.

President and CEO of the college Dr. Phillip Neal said this is a great partnership between the two entities.

“I think this just shows the investment that the city is making in continuing the high-quality growth within our law enforcement. I think it’s something that we as citizens of Bowling Green and Warren County and South-Central Kentucky should be proud of,” Neal said.

During the development of the law enforcement academy, SKYCTC reached out to the police department about this agreement, which is how the partnership was formed.
