AAPOG ANNOUNCES 2015 SCHOLARSHIPS
(Atlanta, GA ) - The Asian American Peace Officers of Georgia (AAPOG), a non-profit professional networking organization for officer of Asian Pacific American heritage affiliated with local, county, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, is pleased to announce the call for 2015 AAPOG Scholarships.
"AAPOG is committed to bridging the gap between the Asian Pacific American community, who tend to distrust law enforcement, and the law enforcement community who seek to uphold laws and justice in Georgia," said Louis Tsang, AAPOG President. "AAPOG is committed to increasing community outreach and public programs to educate the public of their rights and protections in their communities and in their encounters with law enforcement."
"AAPOG's officers and network of community partners are committed to advancing its mission to promote the safety and well-being of Asian Pacific Americans in Georgia," said Tricia Sung, AAPOG Executive Director. "Through the AAPOG Scholarship program, officers are intent on building the pipeline of APAs entering peace officer professions, particularly those with critical Asian language skills."
AAPOG invites applications for the 2015 AAPOG Scholarship program which awards $750 to two college students who intend to pursue criminal justice and/or social service careers. For questions regarding the AAPOG Banquet or Scholarship, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
