"I have been able to use the knowledge that I gained attending Point Park University in every aspect of my professional career from policy and organizational administration to ethics and economics. Each subject was timely and relevant to my daily job duties of being a member of the command staff with the Pittsburgh Police."
"I have always loved learning and realized quickly through the criminal justice administration program the importance of the community. Although some of my classmates pursued careers within law enforcement, for me, criminal justice has always been about creating a community and how we can, as citizens, better it."
