Interactive instruction from top law enforcement personnel is just part of the new, five-week Southeastern Leadership Academy, formerly the Southeastern Command and Leadership Academy. Each week will focus around themed lessons: Foundations of Leadership/Leading Others, Leadership Skills, Building External Relationships, Employee/Internal Matters and Critical Issues. The academy, which is targeted toward middle management, will challenge participants to develop their leadership styles in order to become more effective and progressive leaders. This project is funded under an agreement with the State of Tennessee, Department of Finance and Administration, Office of Criminal Justice Programs and is supported by Award #23123, awarded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, USDOJ.

This course will assist first-line supervisors in developing a better understanding of roles, accountabilities, and skills in supervision. First-line and middle management supervisors will learn how to empower their officers to solve problems and be accountable for their actions. Supervisors will learn to become coaches and mentors, and this course will lay the foundation for basic changes in supervisory skills.
This three day course will help the mid-level leader gain a better understanding of his/her leadership style. Participants will learn the planning and decision making skills necessary to lead organizational change and transformation. Participants will learn to avoid destructive group think by using effective conflict resolution techniques. Participants will learn the importance of fostering a positive work environment to help with officers’ emotional survival. Participants will learn the dynamics involved in leading a work environment that contains four generations.
This class is the capstone of LEIC’s leadership program. It is held once annually and serves executive level law enforcement personnel. It is 24 hours POST approved.
The Law Enforcement Innovation Center has received funding from the State of Tennessee to address the unique challenges of jurisdictions through the newly created program called, State-Wide Training Initiative for Tennessee Law Enforcement Agencies. Working with law enforcement agencies and affiliated associations across Tennessee, LEIC is implementing a comprehensive training initiative covering a broad range of criminal justice topics and consisting of multiple training activities. The training activities include the delivery of training events in jurisdictions throughout the state. There is a modest registration fee for attending the courses. All courses are approved by the TN POST Commission.
