Command & Leadership Academy

In recognizing the challenges in law enforcement during the upcoming decades, the NJSACOP has made a commitment to be in the forefront of innovation and change. The primary component of that commitment is the development of future police leaders.

In 1993, NJSACOP officials traveled to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point to work with the Academy's department of behavioral sciences and leadership to adapt the fabled West Point model of command and leadership to the needs of law enforcement.

The result of this collaboration is the NJ Chiefs of Police Command & Leadership Academy, a unique blend of theory and application. Candidates with the greatest leadership potential are selected for this highly competitive program from all areas of the State.

The Command & Leadership students study, learn and apply:

  • Leadership as a science with logic, critical thinking, methodology and vision
  • Using organizational theory in a law enforcement context with police-oriented case studies
  • Behavioral and motivation theories
  • Individual communicating and counseling
  • Inter-group conflict management
  • Decision making
  • Participants learn to be the leader - the decision maker / communicator / counselor / stress-manager - in a complex organization.

For a program of this caliber, law enforcement professionals who are selected make more than a casual commitment; it is an intensive, demanding course that will pay dividends for the participant and his or her agency for a lifetime.

There are two sessions each year in both the Northern and Southern parts of the State as well as New Castle County, Delaware.
