Performance Leadership
Leading an organization can be a difficult and daunting task. Establishing a set of standards that all officers are aware of and follow creates an environment of transparency that everyone appreciates. This course will explain the concepts of performance standards and their usefulness in measuring effective law enforcement strategies. Any supervisor will benefit from understanding and implementing these concepts in their agency. Leaders must make the expectations of their staff known in order to have accountability in their agency. Understanding these concepts will empower your staff and bring a sense of community to any organization.

This course will only be offered one more time before the end of the year. Visit OPOTA’s course catalogue for more information.
