Bonner-Redd-Surratt-Davis Scholarship Program

The Bonner-Redd-Surratt-Davis Scholarship Program contributes money for college and a job when you graduate.

As part of an ongoing effort to promote diversity, the WSPD offers scholarships to students enrolled in historically black colleges and universities (HBCU) who are interested in a career in law enforcement.

The program is named after four previous chiefs.
