Brandman University Law Enforcement Agency Leadership Program

On Tuesday February 4, 2014, the Brandman University Law Enforcement Agency Leadership program graduated its first class of students to successfully complete all three courses of the program. This program was developed in a partnership between Brandman’s School of Extended Education and the Orange County Sheriff Department and consists of three 45 hour courses dedicated to personal leadership, team leadership, and organizational leadership. Each student was joined by several of their co-workers and family members that supported them through the program. Chancellor Brahm delivered a welcome and congratulatory speech, while Undersheriff Mark Billings noted the importance of this program to the development of leaders in the department.
The Law Enforcement Agency Leadership certificate is an integrated three-tier program specifically designed for sworn and civilian employees working in county, municipal and state law enforcement organizations. The purpose of the program is to develop high performance leaders at all levels that will build strong dynamic organizations, successfully face current and future challenges, and ethically serve their communities. Each tier of the program consists of a separate 12-week, 45-hour certificate program and each subsequent tier builds on the knowledge and skills of the previous tier.
• Personal Leadership: Awareness of personal preferences and strengths and the development of individual leadership competencies
• Group/Team Leadership: Development of leadership competencies necessary to successfully lead, manage and supervise teams and groups
• Organizational Leadership: Strategic leadership of the organization
This is a blended format program. Participants meet on-ground at regularly scheduled times at the Irvine campus and continue their learning between sessions via online classroom.
