Law Enforcement Supervisors Leadership Training Program

8 Training Days
Locations Offered: 


This Law Enforcement Supervisors Leadership Training Program (LESLTP) provides a unique opportunity for professionals to develop and refine their leadership skills. The instructors are  current or former law enforcement supervisors and managers who  bring a unique understanding of the law enforcement culture and practical knowledge of how to meet the challenges law enforcement leaders will face in their operational settings.

Participants in this program will gain an understanding of how to apply basic leadership competencies in order to obtain the highest level of performance and accountability. This program focuses the new law enforcement leader's skill base in 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 program's 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 necessary to be an effective leader in todays law enforcement community. The courses focus heavily on human capital development disciplines and their interaction with the law enforcement mission and culture.
