Cape Coral Police Department Presents:
IACP Leadership in Police Organizations (LPO)

The Cape Coral Police Department is proud to host the Leadership in Police Organizations (LPO) training course presented by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). The LPO model is based on a leadership curriculum that originated at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Through the efforts of military personnel who served within the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership and experienced police administrators, this civilian version of the course was created. The course has been modified to address the particular challenges faced by law enforcement.

The IACP leadership model is based on the tenants of dispersed leadership, which reflect documented best practices in the public and private sectors, the military, and the justice system. It is rooted in community oriented policing theory and addresses leadership as an agency-wide concept, reaching all ranks and positions. In recognition of the diversity of police agencies and the communities they serve, the model is designed to be adaptable to an agency’s individual mission and philosophy. Even though the model is flexible, it has at its foundation a set of core values that reflect the nature of our profession: duty, honor, service, dignity, respect for others, integrity, courage and loyalty.

This training course defines leadership as, “The process of influencing human behavior to achieve organizational goals that serve the public, while developing individuals, teams, and the organization for future service.”

This is a challenging three-week training opportunity for law enforcement supervisors and managers that will change your ideas on what constitutes “leadership.” This program focuses on the cultivation and preparation of future police leaders.

This course is in high demand and is expected to fill quickly. To register for this training please complete the attached registration form and submit no later than May 3, 2013.
