On December 14, the Safe Communities Institute was proud to recognize graduates from its Public Safety Leadership Certificate Program (PSLP). We were also honored to have Santa Monica Chief of Police Cynthia Renaud offer the keynote address.
PSLP Class 7 included public safety leaders from numerous organizations, including: the Santa Monica Police Department, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, the Los Angeles Police Department, the USC Department of Public Safety, the South Gate Police Department, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, the U.S. Marshals Service, the El Monte Police Department, and the private company, Brookfield.
The Public Safety Leadership Certificate Program provides mid-level managers with a 21st-century approach to public safety by adopting a multidisciplinary and “whole-of-community” methodology. At the core of the program is an emphasis on leadership, ethics, and values. The course is divided into four modules:
Leadership – Collaborative leadership, negotiation, ethics, organizational branding, values driven leadership, consensus building, conflict resolution, decision making and metrics.
Global Threats – Terrorism, homegrown violent extremism, cyber-crime, gangs, human trafficking, drug cartels.
Technology – Geospatial analysis, cyber security, critical infrastructure protection, resilience, information analysis, social media.
Community Engagement – Faith organizations, mental health, juveniles, civil liberties, special populations, and outreach strategies
Congratulations to PSLP Class 7! SCI offers its deep thanks and respect to these dedicated leaders supporting safe communities.
