Chiefs and directors: EDI is tailored for you. But it is also a valuable investment in the professional development of standout members of your leadership team.

If you cultivate leaders within your agency and want to boost the leadership potential of your most talented staff, then EDI is for those personnel.

“I highly recommend the IACLEA Executive Development Institute for all leaders,” said IACLEA member Bill Woods, director of public safety at San Mateo County Community College District (California). “Top-notch training."

Captain Earl W. Scharff, Idaho State University Public Safety Department, echoed that reaction: “I feel the IACLEA EDI class is a must for any campus law enforcement/public safety supervisor,” he said. “The topics were very informative and delivered by powerful motivated speakers. The topic of leading individuals from various generations was extremely valuable since our workforces have multiple generations working together as a team, and they all have different methods of being supervised.”

EDI offers focused course work to develop your agency’s future leaders, thereby boosting succession planning, reducing liability, and improving the positive perception of the department.
