Law Enforcement Manager Training Program

8 Training Days
Locations Offered: 


The Law Enforcement Manager Training Program (LEMTP) is a middle management training program designed to provide law enforcement second-line supervisors and seasoned managers with the skills and competencies needed to be successful. The LEMTP provides law enforcement professionals the opportunity to learn and network with peers who share similar experiences, problems, challenges, and other concerns that law enforcement is facing today and will face in the future. It focuses on competencies tied directly to personal and organizational skills of the second-line supervisor.

Through the courses offered in this program, the successful manager will be able to refocus on previously utilized skills such as DISC, servant leadership and the skills necessary to establish a shared vision throughout their respective organizations.  Some of the "pitfalls" of ineffective management will also be explored and ways of avoiding these "pitfalls" will be examined and openly discussed.  Participants will also have and opportunity to hone their skills at identifying the "do's and don'ts" of being interviewed by a member of the media. Participants will be interviewed in either an on-site venue or studio talk show format. These interviews will be video-taped and the participants will be provided a copy of their interviews for self-critique.                  


Applicants must be  a law enforcement second-line supervisor or a seasoned law enforcement manager.
