Where : Hampton Roads Criminal Justice Training Academy
When : October 29-30, 2019
Description :
Time: 0700-1545

This course will provide a thorough, comprehensive review of the federal constitutional principles critical for effective and lawful field policing endeavors.

Although the instruction will include an engaging and critical lecture component, small group, scenario-based discussions will serve to enhance the learning experience. Common professional misinformation surround the law of policing will be addressed and corrected, thereby enhancing the level of professional policing each officer's community receives. This class will benefit officers in any assignment as well as supervisors and managers.

Creating and Maintaining the "Well-Disciplined Organization"...Enhanced Leadersip Initiatives (WDO)

Classification : Specialized Training
Where : Hampton Roads Criminal Justice Training Academy
When : August 12-14, 2019
Description :
Time: 0700-1545

Being labeled a "Well-Disciplined Organization" is a high compliment and does not mean "well-punished." In fact, the need to use a lot of punitive discipline is indicative of a poorly disciplined organization. A well-disciplined organization is a place where people follow the rules, do what they are supposed to do, and refrain from doing otherwise. This program, then, is about motivating employees to do just that, utilizing a broad array of much focused organizational leadership initiatives.
