Local Law Enforcement Officers Complete Leadership Training Class

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
