This course focuses specifically on preparing you for a police chiefs position. Each segment of the course will focus on skills needed to lead an agency. Lectures will be complemented by practical exercises, role-play, extensive class interaction, and panel discussions. Topics will include the application process, managing generational differences, innovations and best practices, leadership perceptions, building time management skills, effective budgeting, labor laws and the CJSTC disciplinary process.
Because of the nature of their new job, recently appointed chiefs of police (3 years or less as a Chief), often find themselves confronting issues with which they have had little or no experience during their professional career. This course focuses on providing new chiefs with an understanding of many of those critical issues and with interaction with other chiefs and city officials from whose experience they may learn. As is the case with other FPCA classes, this course will complement classroom lectures with practical exercises, role-play, extensive class interaction, and panel discussions. This seminar is limited to Chiefs only.
