Supervisors from Upland Borough Police Department recently attended a week-long training session in Bucks County that was held through the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association, or FBI-LEEDA, according to a staff report from CrimeWatch.
The Supervisor Leadership Institute focused on helping law enforcement leaders develop their own leadership style, understand their personality to better lead personnel, and build their leadership philosophy while taking into account that the values that others possess are all different in various ways.
Overall, 39 students from the tri state region participated in the five-day training which is one segment of the FBI-LEEDA Trilogy Program. The program consists of Supervisor Leadership, Command Leadership, and Executive Leadership training sessions.
“Our agencies goal is to have every department supervisor complete all three facets of the FBI-LEEDA program in an effort to better lead the officers within the agency and to achieve Agency Trilogy status,” said Chief Michael Irey.
Irey himself completed all three sessions and is an FBI-LEEDA Trilogy Award recipient.
“Education in law enforcement is invaluable and needs to be continuous,” he added. “Training does nothing less than increase the level of professionalism in the way we serve the public.”
