21st Century Leadership for Law Enforcement

Continuously enhancing our leadership knowledge, and developing the traits and skills of leadership, is what separates the effective leader from others. Effective leadership offers vision and direction, positively influences others, and enhances our relationships with the communities we serve. Leadership can be learned, but it requires a plan, dedication, and action.

21st Century Leadership for Law Enforcement is designed to help every law enforcement officer – regardless of rank – become a better leader!

Participants will:

  • Be introduced to 21st Century Leadership as a body of traits and practices especially relevant to the complexities of today’s world.
  • Learn how law enforcement’s history and culture impact how leadership is typically practiced, and why enhancing your leadership skills are necessary for your future.
  • Be introduced to a leadership development plan that can be implemented at the personal, group or organizational level incorporating 21st Century Leadership principles and resources.

Decision-Making for the Law Enforcement Leader

Decision-making skills are among the most valued traits of the law enforcement officer. Quick decisions are demanded of us from our first day in the academy and become second nature as our careers develop.

But what actually drives our decision making processes? And can our decision-making instincts have a negative impact when we move into supervisory or management ranks? Utilizing principles and practices of 21st Century Leadership, Decision-Making for the Law Enforcement Leader will expand your understanding of how decisions are made and improve your decision-making skills.

Participants will:

  • Learn how law enforcement values, ethics, and culture impact our decision-making processes.
  • Be introduced to adaptive problem-solving and why new methods are needed to solve old (and new) problems.
  • Learn strategies for gaining input from colleagues and other sources to help make better decisions.
  • Learn how to adapt decision-making processes when working in a collaborative effort.

Human Trafficking for the Law Enforcement Leader

Slavery can exist within any community in the United States and has been found in nearly every country in the world. Human trafficking is a popular media topic, and every day community organizations ask, “What’s our police department doing about human trafficking?”

Human trafficking is a complex criminal and social justice issue and law enforcement leaders need to be conversant in both the topic and its importance to the community. Human Trafficking for the Law Enforcement Leader is specifically designed to meet this need.

 Participants will:

  • Learn the forms of human trafficking and why trafficking can occur in any community.
  • Better understand the roles played community organizations and how to best engage with them.
  • Improve their comments or statements when discussing human trafficking with community members or the media.
  • Learn how a simple change in tactics can improve your agency’s response to human trafficking.

Human Trafficking for the Law Enforcement Leader is recommended for all law enforcement leaders, but will also be of interest to any staff member interested in the response to modern slavery. (1 hour Keynote speech or conference seminar.)

“Thank you for your participation in our 2013 Sex Offender Registry Innovations Conference.
Your presentation was a huge success with our audience of law enforcement personnel. Your knowledge and experience on the subject of human trafficking is extensive; this is very apparent through your lecture. We truly believe you shared your abundance of knowledge and educated a large number of us on a subject that no once can know too much about. Thank you so much.”
