St John's. And he joined the NYPD right out of high school and got his law degree while with th NYPD. Maybe a law degree helps you advance in 30 years, but what you really need is tons of experience, leadership and managerial skills, and the ability to be the public face of your department. I think a jd might be a detriment to an entry-level applicant. Plus most cops I know hate lawyers, even their own prosecutors.
