Law Enforcement officers from across Cherokee and Etowah Counties recently participated in a leadership training class presented by the Law Enforcement Innovation Center of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
The tiered approach to leadership development offers a comprehensive training program to emerging law enforcement leaders. Completing all three levels of LEIC’s leadership training results in a “Certification of Law Enforcement Leadership”.
Outcomes for completing all three levels (248 hours):
- Increased productivity
- Increased effectiveness
- Increased self-awareness
- Increased communication skills
- Develop the ability to coach and mentor
- Create a performance driven workplace
- Increase the impact at home, work and community
