  • Create a resilient counter-crime network
  • Put actionable knowledge to work in the fight against crime
  • Build mutual trust and garner support from different stakeholders
These training courses are designed for the command and supervisory level personnel and for those who seek to advance their law enforcement careers though the ranks. They use experiential "hands on" methods such as simulations, scenario walkthroughs, group exercises and video clips, based on current real life contexts, as the primary learning tools. The trainings combine such topics as collaborative leadership, communications, team dynamics, political savvy, and emotional intelligence into a focused proactive approach for crisis management as well as day-to-day crime fighting efforts.
