    This class will be taught by Randy Means, J.D., a nationally recognized expert in police management and related legal issues. This is not an ordinary supervision and leadership program. Rather, it deals with a variety of supervisory and managerial responsibilities that are non-negotiable. Supervisory styles can and will vary from supervisor to supervisor but adherence to certain key principles cannot. Leaders absolutely must put employees on clear notice of organizational standards. Those standards must be consistently enforced. Sanctions must be consistent and proportionate. This cannot vary from supervisor to supervisor; overarching consistency must be maintained from workgroup to workgroup. This requires a systemic approach to handling what historically was left to individual supervisory and managerial discretions. The program demonstrates the need for organizational solutions to organizational problems and emphasizes proper roles and responsibilities of various members of the leadership team from first-line supervisors to administrators. This program is for law enforcement leaders at all levels, and especially including command staff.

  • Supervisory Roles and Responsibilities
