While our roots are in the military, American Military University’s student body is largely comprised not only of military personnel, but of those actively engaged in the fields of law enforcement, corrections, emergency management, intelligence and national security.
AMU has developed strategic relationships with key influencer organizations such as the FBI National Academy Associates, International Association of Chiefs of Police, International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts, International Association of Emergency Managers and the American Correctional Officers not only to further its credibility within these professions, but to offer those who work within them useful information so they can be better prepared for advancement and leadership opportunities.
For more information concerning AMU educational offerings, including degree, certificate and leadership programs for corrections and gang investigations personnel, please reach out to Rob Stallworth, AMU’s resource for the field, at RStallworth@apus.edu.
