Law Enforcement Supervisor Leadership Training Program (LESLTP)

Up one level

This program is a career development tool that provides a unique opportunity for law enforcement professionals to develop and refine their leadership skills in a leadership/supervisory training program designed for law enforcement. The instructors in this program are all current or former supervisory law enforcement professionals. These professionals bring the unique understanding of the law enforcement culture, and the practical knowledge of how to meet the challenges that law enforcement leaders will face in operational law enforcement settings.

Participants in this program will gain an understanding of how to apply basic leadership knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA) in order to obtain the highest level of performance and accountability. This program focuses the new law enforcement leader's skill base in the three key enablers of human capital leadership: people, process, and technology. The program focuses heavily on the most important enabler of human capital leadership — "people."  This leadership development journey first starts with a self-assessment, and the understanding that people are assets whose value can be enhanced through investment and understanding. The law enforcement leadership journey continues by understanding and aligning their organization’s "shared vision" with mission, vision for the future, core values, goals and objectives, and, most important, leading by example. The KSA topical areas include leadership skills through understanding and adapting to human behaviors, communication skills, team building, conflict management, human resource management, legal responsibilities, stress management, workplace diversity, performance skills, briefing skills, and situational decision-making skills. Taking into consideration life and work experience, participants will explore these topics and develop skills by means of an adult learning model that employs lecture, practical exercises, case studies and self-directed learning.

This program addresses the competencies needed to be effective as a leader in the law enforcement community. The courses in this program focus heavily on human capital development disciplines and the law enforcement mission and culture. To accomplish this, LIB has collaborated with some of the best-known experts on leadership from the private sector. This enables LIB to deliver some of the best courses on leadership to our customers. These programs and courses are customized to address concerns and needs of the law enforcement community. This partnership has proven to be an investment that continues to help develop the next generation of law enforcement leadership for this nation.
