Leadership in Police OrganizationsSM (LPO) is the IACP’s flagship leadership development training program. LPO is modeled after the training concept of dispersed leadership (“every officer a leader”) and delivers modern behavioral science concepts and theories uniquely tailored to the law enforcement environment.

The three-week LPO course explores leadership at different levels in the organization: leading individuals, leading groups, and leading organizations. The course, designed at the Sergeant (and first-line, non-sworn supervisors) level and above:

  • Applied learning: The course is highly interactive, using small group case studies, videos, role playing, and class exercises to reinforce learning.
  • Translation of theory to practice: Participants learn behavioral science theories with real-world application to better understand how to lead change in individuals, groups, and organizations.
  • Practical leadership strategies: Participants learn strategies for influencing human behavior to increase motivation, satisfaction, and performance throughout an organization.

The cost for the course and materials is $1450 ($1450 for the course and $77 for the required LPO books).  Lodging is not included in this price.

TCOLE credit available – the three-week LPO course is 120 hours
