Greer, SC—North Greenville University hosted more than 30 law enforcement leaders from around the state on Tuesday for a regular meeting of the South Carolina Police Chiefs Association.

The gathering featured legislative updates, topical presentations, and business discussions at NGU’s Tim Brashier Campus in Greer.

“It was an honor to host the South Carolina Police Chiefs Association,” said Dr. Marti Glass, director of adult and professional studies at NGU. “NGU is proud to be a resource for law enforcement and looks forward to supporting our local agencies in our degree programs, certificate programs, and specialized trainings.”

North Greenville continues to serve as a strategic partner for law enforcement officials, offering discounts and online educational opportunities for those currently serving.

“The Greer Police Department is a significant benefactor of our relationship with North Greenville University,” said Greer Police Chief Matt Hamby. “NGU offers tailor-made professional development seminars provided by the faculty and has established a Greer Police Department Minority Scholarship at the university. I am grateful for friendships that have developed with numerous NGU faculty. Greer PD employs several NGU graduates, and some have been students while working at Greer PD in a full-time capacity. NGU’s Criminal Justice program is flexible for working professionals and the faculty are invested in the student’s success.”

Richard Hensley, NGU’s regional partnership manager, said the university’s connection with law enforcement and the surrounding community remains vital.

“We want to continue to be a resource for our communities and those who serve them,” Hensley said. “We are thankful for our police officers and first responders and will continue to partner with them in strategic ways.”
