This four-week school is designed for first-line supervisors and middle-level management. It should be of interest to law enforcement agencies concerned with the professionalism of their management team. The curriculum focuses on the transition from “street policing” to the challenges of the fast paced and fluid world of law enforcement leadership, including the social and personal adjustments. This course will meet the basic requirements established by TCOLE for the preparation of new supervisors for their supervisory role. Successful graduates of this course will receive credit for TCOLE New Supervisor’s Course 3737.

This course is broken up into four, one-week sessions to allow agencies that are not able to release critical personnel for four continuous weeks to participate. ILEA prides itself on listening to the needs of our clients.
