Overview

From its inception in 1957, the mission of the Institute for Law Enforcement Administration has been to provide quality educational programs designed to enhance the professional development of law enforcement leaders at all levels. As the “flagship” program over that time, the School of Executive Leadership (formerly Management College) attracts participants representing municipal, county, state and federal law enforcement organizations across the nation.

Mindful of the essential role it plays in helping prepare law enforcement leaders for the future, the School of Executive Leadership provides a challenging and intensive environment in which participants can learn, develop and test a range of success-oriented skills and abilities. The value of the School of Executive Leadership experience is best measured by the numbers of graduates who serve in leadership positions in organizations across the law enforcement profession.

This course is an intensive eight-week program designed to prepare senior-level law enforcement managers and  administrators for leadership in the complex world of public executives. The academic experience prepares individuals to take part in:

  • Providing leadership in their agencies on problem solving and management issues.
  • Applying progressive and innovative management approaches to their agencies.
  • Communicating, both to their colleagues and to the public, plans and programs for change and improvement of police services.
  • Professional development opportunities as a stepping-stone toward management and leadership excellence.
  • Developing strategies for personal and organizational success in politically-charged environments.
  • Gaining professional knowledge as a life-long learner and acquiring critical thinking skills about the future of law enforcement.
  • Assuring compliance with current and emerging legal issues as they affect both management and operational aspects of policing.
  • Discerning and building avenues for values-based leadership to prosper in law enforcement organizations.

Developing a personal leadership style characterized by creativity, service and empathy.
