UTSAPD hosts leadership training course

By Stephanie Padula
Lieutenant, UTSA Police Department

(March 4, 2009)--The UTSA Police Department in conjunction with the Boerne Police Department and the New Braunfels Police Department are hosting the "Leadership in Police Organizations" training course produced by the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

With approximately 25 law enforcement, fire and public safety leaders in attendance at UTSA, they will finish this week the final segments of a three-week training course. For one week each month since January, the group has gathered to learn leadership skills based on the tenets of dispersed leadership, which reflect documented best practices in the public and private sectors, the military and the justice system.

The course 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 the law enforcement profession: duty, honor, service, dignity, respect for others, integrity, courage and loyalty.
