First Line Supervisors Training

November 28-30, 2017

This is a three-day training program that has been designed for those newly appointed (or soon to be promoted) as supervisors and is most applicable to individuals who have had little or no prior supervisory training. This program is designed to assist officers in their transition to their new role as supervisor.

The curriculum is focused on basic supervisory concepts that serve as a foundation to enable each supervisor to identify some of the most critical components of supervision.  Classes may include: Role & Responsibility, Legal Responsibilities for Supervisors, Supervisory Ethics, Effective Communications, Disciplinary Process/Internal Affairs, Mentoring the New or Underachieving Police Officer, Transitioning from Friend to Supervisor, Identifying & Getting Help for Employees with Post Traumatic Stress Injury, Introduction to Fair and Impartial Policing, Employee Recognition, and Introduction to Elder Abuse Issues.   Classes offered change from time to time to ensure that topics covered are recent and relevant.

In addition to classroom discussions, this program provides participants with the opportunity to network with supervisors from other law enforcement agencies. The program is open to applicants from law enforcement agencies, both in-state and out-of-state.

Registration Deadline is November 3, 2017.
