This course is designed for first-line supervisors and middle-level management. It should be of interest to law enforcement agencies concerned with the professionalism of their management team. This is the only independent four-week school in the nation for police supervisors and recognizes the importance of supervision as a major management function in law enforcement. The curriculum focuses on the transition from "street policing" to management, especially the social and personal adjustments.
