Day 1: Morning Block 1- Risk Management for Leaders

Lt. (ret) Rick Bates

This module illustrates the importance of risk management to maintain accountability, integrity and community trust. The instructor will outline the benefits of conducting risk management to improve organizational effectiveness and reduce liability and potential lawsuits. This model of proactive leadership focuses on prevention and pre-incident intervention as opposed to traditional approaches such as post-incident complaint and internal investigations.


Day 1: Morning Block 2 - Leading Your Agency from Crisis to Excellence

Dr. Steve Morreale, DEA (ret.)

American law enforcement has been under fire for the past several years. Agencies have been painted with a broad brush. As leaders from rural, small to medium sized agencies, police executives should consider opportunities for improving the optics and practices of police services. The session will allow for open discussion of prescriptives to continue to improve service delivery.


Day 1: Afternoon Block 1 - Police Reform and Defunding Issues

Chief (ret) John Moore
