“The members of MSA give special recognition to the financial needs of students attending the peace officer skills course, or one of the two or four-year law enforcement degree colleges,” according to the release. “MSA recognizes the importance of pre-entry training for people considering law enforcement as their career choice. MSA acknowledges some students need outside help in meeting the costs of such training, even though they excel academically.”
