During the Los Angeles Police Museum’s 21st Annual Jack Webb Awards, Chief Charlie  Beck will present the distinguished Jack Webb Award to C. L. Max Nikias, President of the University of Southern California.  According to Chief Beck, “President Nikias has been an  extraordinary partner and exceptional friend, not only to me, but to the men and women who proudly serve the City of Los Angeles.  He exemplifies the values and traditions of the Los Angeles Police Department and is deserving of the Jack Webb Award for his significant commitment to the LAPD and life-long support of the entire law enforcement community.”     
USC is proud to be home to one of the LAPD Cadet Program’s cadet posts, staffed by 50 young men and women from our neighborhoods who volunteer at local schools and serve the community in many other meaningful ways.  This spring, four LAPD officers enrolled in the USC Price School’s Executive Master of Leadership program to become the first recipients of the USC-LAPD Scholarship, which provides for half of their tuition.  Cooperative efforts such as this are what help define USC’s role as a leading educational institution deeply invested in its community.

"USC is extremely proud of its longstanding, strong partnership with the Los Angeles Police Department. We share a staunch commitment to the safety and prosperity of our community,  and I am truly honored to work with so many individuals at our university and in law enforcement who are dedicated to this important work." – Dr. C.L Max Nikias
