The Fort Myers Police Department is pleased to announce Lieutenant Roger Valdivia as a graduate of FDLE’s Senior Leadership Program Class 18. Lieutenant Valdivia was among 28 senior executives across the state who attended the program and graduated.
The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute advised participants met for 7 weeks over a 10 month period and graduated October 30, 2015. Graduates took classes on topics such as demographics, budgeting, and futures forecasting as it relates to criminal justice and strategic planning.
The goal of the Senior Leadership Program is to prepare Florida’s criminal justice leadership for the challenging and changing demands of the future. Class participants study the trends and events that will challenge criminal justice professionals and the state in the new millennium and examine the leadership skills necessary to create and lead the changes that lie ahead. “Continuing education is extremely important as we prepare our leaders to stay ahead of the curve,” said Police Chief Dennis Eads.
The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute, established within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and affiliated with the State University System, was established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature to address the need for an innovative and multi-faceted approach to the education and training of criminal justice professionals.
