A developmental program for superior officers seeking to prepare for senior police leadership, as well as those already in senior positions looking to enhance their skills

An approved NJSACOP Accredited Chief/Command Executive [ACE] Professional Development Course


The NJSACOP Foundation for Senior Executive Leadership Program (FEL) is designed as a developmental program for superior officers seeking to prepare for senior police leadership, as well as those already in the most senior positions looking to enhance their skills. The program will help provide the knowledge and understanding required of leaders operating at this level.
The following is the selection criteria for attendance at the FEL:
  • Ideally, attendees should have at least three months experience operating as a Lieutenant (or equivalent) or above, and must have the endorsement of their Chief of Police or Chief Agency Executive.
  • Attendees must have completed other supervision or leadership courses, as the program is designed on the assumed knowledge provided by such programs.
The underlying purpose of the course is to help attendees to lead in a complex policing environment where decision-making, leadership, partnership, and self-awareness are needed to successfully operate. The course is also designed to help police executives not just deal with today’s ever-changing environment, but to also manage necessary change.

The 5-day classroom based content of this program will be delivered at a fast pace, using tutor facilitated discussions, self-diagnostic and group exercises, and respected guests speakers from policing and academia. The course affords participants the opportunity to reflect on their current actions and to learn new skills to effectively lead their teams in strategic, operational, and tactical arenas, as well as non-operational environments.

The course organized around five (5) critical core concepts:

[The Context of Leadership Learning / Leadership Styles / Leadership Levels]

[Perception of Leadership / Self Understanding / Personality Type]

[Decision Making: Rationale & Bias / Ethics & Public Values / Historic Case Study: Leadership in
Times of Crisis]

[Leading Individuals & Teams Through Conflict / Leading Strategic Risk / Leading Individuals & Teams Through Change / Models for Leading Through Change]

[Project Management / Team Development / Action Plans]
