The New Police Corps proposal presents an innovative approach to the problem of expanding our police forces in a time of fiscal austerity. The proposal envisions using existing college financial aid programs along with increased levels of public expenditures to subsidize the hiring of additional police. Participants in the ROTC-like program, would, in return for the complete financing of their college education at in-state schools, undergo police training and serve a minimum three year term as police officers after graduation.
