John Jay has a partnership with the NYC NYPD to help diversify the police force.
APPLE Corps is a collaboration between John Jay, the CUNY Justice Academy, the New York Police Department (NYPD) and the NYC Department of Education. It has extensive experiential learning opportunities and professional workshops. Those selected for the program receive a $20,000 stipend across the two years they participate with the goal of keeping them in college and graduating within four years. Throughout the time in the program, APPLE Corps students have opportunities to engage with the NYPD and learn about careers. Following the two years of the program, students may join the NYPD Cadets and get on track to enter the Police Academy following graduation. Approximately 100 students are admitted to the program per year. Of the first 400 students who have participated, approximately 56 percent are male and 44 percent female. Approximately 88 percent are non-White. https://equalopportunitytoday.com/2019/06/02/nypd-partners-with-john-jay-college-to-help-diversify-the-police-force/ SDG 10.2
