“My commitment to a career in law enforcement began during my time at Pace University. The dedication displayed by the Pace University Professors was truly inspiring. I was presented with opportunities that I know opened the door for me to begin my career in law enforcement. To this day, I still keep in touch with one of my former professors and I take pride in being able to share my accomplishments with someone who truly cared about my future.”
