Portland police are teaming up with St. Joseph’s College so officers can take courses online at a discount.

The college’s online Division of Graduate & Professional Studies will waive application fees and give officers a $50 per course tuition discount, according to a statement from the city and the college.

“Continuing education keeps us current and contemporary as an organization,” said Portland Chief of Police James Craig.

The college offers a wide range of courses including criminal justice classes and students can earn bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
