Leadership is an essential part of law enforcement-- it embraces character, respect, trust, duty, honor, and credibility. The public expects leadership with every law enforcement contact they may have, and law enforcement agencies expect leadership internally at all levels.
We often think of leadership in a crisis situation, but leadership is an everyday experience, and when leadership principles are embraced, they can lead to a more meaningful career and personal life.
Designed as a training program for line-level officers, the goal of this training is to present effective leadership concepts and how they may be applied anytime to common, everyday situations that officers can take a leadership role in.

The DVD-ROM video program offers two viewing modes and printable instructor and trainee documents:
Facilitated Group Course
Each segment features a short introduction, followed by scenarios with related questions and activities to assist in facilitating a group discussion about ethical decision making. The facilitator has the option to play subject matter expert comments after the discussion to re-emphasize a training point or to ensure all topics are covered. A “Facilitator Guide” document (PDF) is included on the DVD-ROM for printout from a computer.
This viewing mode allows an individual trainee or a small group of trainees to view the training video without formal (classroom) facilitation by an instructor. Features the same scenarios and questions or activities as the “Facilitated Group Course” track. Individual viewers may view sample group discussions, followed by comments from subject matter experts that reiterate and reinforce the teaching points. A "Student Workbook" document (PDF) is included on the DVD-ROM for printout from a computer.
Additional "how to" instructions for facilitation and obtaining CPT credit are included on the main menu of the video.
CPT Hours/Credits: 2 Hours
