LPO Graduates 2016

34 Wyoming law enforcement officers graduated from the first session of the Leadership in Police Organizations training sponsored by WASCOP and conducted by the International Association of Chiefs of Police.  The training was conducted at Northwest College in Powell over the course of three weeks culminating on August 12, 2016.  Leadership in Police Organizations SM (LPO) is the IACP’s flagship leadership development training program. LPO is modeled after the training concept of dispersed leadership (“every officer a leader”) and delivers modern behavioral science concepts and theories uniquely tailored to the law enforcement environment.  The three-week LPO course explores leadership at different levels in the organization: leading individuals, leading groups, and leading organizations. The LPO course culminates with group “change project” presentations. Students work in teams throughout the course to identify actual organization issues/challenges they would like to see change. Groups use applied learning to propose and present a thoughtful solution.
