Managing Patrol Operations

Only a few spots remain in OPOTA's Managing Patrol Operations course, which will take place at the end of the month.

The course is aimed at new and seasoned supervisors who oversee patrol operations in their respective law enforcement agencies.

Those who attend will learn how to sharpen their managerial and leadership skills, how to motivate others, and how to set reasonable goals and objectives for those under their command.

The course also teaches supervisors how to effectively encourage patrol officers to regularly interact with members of the community and how managers can incorporate their agency's mission statement into their leadership style. Crime factors, as well as their root causes within communities, will also be explored to give supervisors guidance how to strategically deploy the right personnel to more efficiently serve the community.

Supervisors will also learn techniques for evaluating patrol officers' effectiveness and the different levels of discipline.

The Managing Patrol Operations course will take place on Aug. 26-27 at OPOTA's London campus. Please visit the OPOTA course catalogue for more information and to register.
