Ethical Leadership in Critical Times
Every decision we make has an ethical impact, whether that is deciding on what coffee to buy or to affect an arrest, there is an ethical element to the decisions we reach.
This seminar considered how we reach decisions and what goes on within the “moment of choice” that forms part of every conclusion we reach. The seminar set out why we should all sit on the “Three-Legged Stool of Ethical Decision Making” though an overview of ethics, emotional intelligence, and leadership. Finally, the seminar considered the National Decision Model. This is the operational decision-making tool used by police officers in the United Kingdom and the one that officers use to account for their actions in challenging operational settings.

Inclusive Campus Policing - Eliminating barriers to collaboration (2-part series)
During the first webinar, Elissa Buxbaum and Angelic Young facilitate a discussion on the foundations of trust and legitimacy and the way in which both concepts relate to law enforcement and the communities they serve. Integrated into this discussion is a brief presentation on the history of law enforcement’s engagement with marginalized groups and the impact of that history on contemporary relationships. The facilitators close by introducing the four key elements of the Inclusive Policing (IP) framework.
During the second webinar, facilitators take participants through the IP framework in-depth, leading participants through a series of exercises designed to draw out what each element of IP means, in practical terms, for participants and how such an approach might be operationalized at their agency. The program closes with a conversation (and exercise, if time) about leadership, resilience, and strategies for bridging communication gaps with communities.
