Leadership for Women in Law Enforcement

5 Training Days
Locations Offered: 


The LWLE is designed for women in law enforcement with a desire to further develop their leadership skills.  The program provides a unique opportunity to examine leadership principles from the female law enforcement professional’s perspective.  The courses in this program are tailored to concentrate on issues and challenges common to female leaders in law enforcement such as Gender Differences and Work Life Balance.  The program will facilitate open, candid discussions and exercises to identify and develop approaches to deal with common issues and challenges.  The competency areas include leadership skills through understanding and adapting to human behaviors, communication skills, team building, situational decision-making skills, and emotional intelligence.  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, laboratory, case studies and self-directed learning.  During the program, distinguished law enforcement executives will lead a panel discussion on participant-selected law enforcement leadership topics.  Although the program focuses on Women in Law Enforcement, the leadership competencies developed will apply across the law enforcement community.
