Executive Leadership Program
The Broward Sheriff's Office Institute for Criminal Justice Studies
January 15 - May 14 2014
The Institute for Criminal Justice Studies is now accepting applications for its 2014 Executive Leadership Program. As a joint effort among the Broward Sheriff's Office, Nova Southeastern University and the Sheriff's Foundation of Broward County, the Executive Leadership Program offers an exciting opportunity to mid- and upper-level public safety professionals.
The Executive Leadership Program is a 17-week (one day per week) leadership development program that focuses on key leadership competencies. Your instructors will be a team of Nova Southeastern University professors and experienced criminal justice and public safety practitioners. Numerous expert guest speakers further enhance this program. Together, they offer a wealth of both theory and practice, and a program unlike any other in Florida.
You may choose to work towards an Executive Leadership Certificate, or earn undergraduate- or graduate-level credits.
Who Should Attend?
The Executive Leadership Program is designed for mid- and upper-level managers in law enforcement, detention, fire-rescue and public safety agencies in the tri-county area. All participants are to be at the level of sergeant, or the equivalent, and above. Participants should have completed at least an associate's degree. Preferences will be given based upon rank and education. All participants and agency administrators will be expected to sign a participant agreement.
Students will be required to identify a problem or issue salient to their own agency and develop a solution by applying the concepts, principles or practices learned in the program. Students will write a paper about their solution and present the solution to their own agency commanders.
