Program Information

Degrees Offered:

Police Leadership

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Graduate Certificate in Police Leadership is designed to provide a theoretical and practical knowledge base for the law enforcement executive in criminal justice, public administration or social work. Municipalities, county governments and state agencies have been working to develop new technologies, cooperative business and government relationships, and new ways of fighting and deterring criminal behavior. The police manager, who previously had been concerned only with issues involving statutes, policies and local jurisdictional issues, must now be concerned with human resource and management issues, employee assistance programs, ethical issues, and local, state, federal, and international government relations.
