CJI's Subscription Program and Scholarship Opportunities
The Criminal Justice Institute provides critical education, training, and services to Arkansas law enforcement executives and their officers in progressive areas of public safety, including crime scene investigation, computer proficiency, traffic safety, illicit drug investigations, school safety, and professional development. Each program is designed to provide officers with needed hands-on experience and practical knowledge. In addition, many of these programs provide skills and knowledge that can be used immediately and assist officers in providing exemplary services to their communities.
In addition to classes held throughout the state, we offer access to a growing number of online classes that allow officers to meet their education and training goals without leaving their agency.
Subscriptions are available to allow all of your officers or deputies, as well as civilian and corrections personnel, to have access to CJI's face-to-face and online programs for a calendar year. Subscription rates are based on the average number of officers/deputies from your department or agency who have attended any CJI classes for the past three years. Subscription rate tiers are provided below:

200 class slots per year $5,000

CJI’s subscription program, which will begin January 1, 2018, will allow us to develop and deliver new training programs and services that best meet the evolving needs and challenges of Arkansas law enforcement professionals.
Training in specialized and advanced areas of policing is critical for officers and deputies at all ranks and for departments of all sizes; therefore it is essential that all officers have access to CJI programs. For agencies who cannot afford a subscription, scholarship opportunities are available through an allocation of one-time funding from Governor Asa Hutchinson.
An independent committee comprised of regional law enforcement representatives will review agency applications and rank recipients based on financial need. Scholarships are only available to law enforcement agencies.
To apply for a scholarship, the agency head must complete an application form found here.
Scholarships for 2018 will be accepted until December 20, 2017, and award notification will occur prior to January 31, 2018. The number of scholarships awarded will be dependent upon the amount of funds available.
If you have any questions about scholarship opportunities, contact Carol Waddle at 501-570-8021.
