On April 10th, 2014, DELO and the Department of Political Science, MPA Program hosted a "welcome dinner" to bring together local law enforcement officers from the WKU Police department, the City of Bowling Green Police department and new students from the United Arab Emirates. Six students who work in law enforcement in the UAE will be joining the MPA program this summer. Both Chief Bob Deane of the WKU Police department and Chief Doug Hawkins of the City of Bowling Green Police department have graciously agreed to partner with the MPA program to enrich the learning experience of these students. As part of their training and education, these students will work closely with local law enforcement personnel.
