The Wisconsin Department of Justice, in partnership with the International Association of Chiefs of Police, is offering Leadership in Police Organizations (LPO) training at several Wisconsin locations.  LPO is our most requested career development course; participants have called the program career-changing.   

LPO uses a behavioral science approach to leading people, groups and organizations. The course is based on material developed for the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.  Focused on cultivating leaders at all levels of the organization, LPO training is highly interactive.  Small group case studies, videos and class exercises are used to reinforce learning.  The three-week course is generally taught one week a month over three months.  

To facilitate networking and group participation, lunch is provided on-site.
