This exclusive class provides line-level officers the building blocks to grow into leadership positions through the belief that the most powerful way to grow as a leader is to become truly self-aware. Each student will build a foundation for individual and organizational growth using curated readings and two nationally recognized self-assessment profiles integrated with group introspective activities. A promotion to sergeant workshop is also included.

At the conclusion of the LDC, your agency can expect to gain an officer who has explored the leadership concepts of Character, Competence, Caring, and Trust, and who has examined ways to effect organizational change that inspires community trust and support.

This is an excellent opportunity to involve your agency in leadership development at a statewide level. Please encourage your command staff to carefully consider who would best represent your agency and benefit from the encouragement of leadership values.

Applicants will be evaluated based on criteria including membership in CPOA, interest in promoting, work performance and recommendations of supervisors or direct commanders.

*The 80 hours is split between two five-day weeks separated by several weeks.

If your application is chosen and your nomination is confirmed, you will receive the details for the course.
