 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 Executive Leadership Program is designed as 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. The program will help provide the knowledge and understanding required of leaders operating at this level.

The following is the selection criteria for attendance:
- Ideally, attendees should have at least three months experience operating as a Lieutenant (or equivalent) or above
- Attendees must have the endorsement of their Chief of Police or Chief 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 manage necessary change. The course will also help attendees understand achieving organizational goals through the model of what constitutes a proper objective and the bench marking principal. The course will also illustrate why organizations fail as it applies to individual and organizational accountability and responsibility. 

At the heart of the course is the two-day "ISLE" exercise. Immersive Simulated Learning Environments ("ISLEs") are an effective naturalistic decision making tool for education and development in strategic and tactical multi-team decision making. Specifically, they are useful for developing anticipation, preparation, mitigation, adaptation and coping skills. In terms of critical incident management there are many cognitive and interpersonal skills that require effective leadership responses. The ISLE exercises featured in this course have been specifically developed for the NJSACOP, and will focus on having the participants apply the knowledge, understanding and skills learned wihtin this course (as well as other leadership courses) into an administrative and operational context.
