Colonel Randy Watt Describes the Program’s Value
- Proven – The curriculum has been scientifically developed and tested for five years.
- Accessible – Anywhere there is an Internet connection an officer can learn.
- Continuous – Professional Education and development continues throughout an officer’s career from ‘hire to retire.’
- Affordable – It is delivered reliably, confidently and at a fraction of traditional training.
- Effective – Agencies with Credible Leadership academies build mutual trust in the communities they serve.
- Compatible – The project fills the void of leadership education that now exists between basic and senior staff leadership training.
- Sustainable – A Credible Leadership Academy is organic and is continuously customizable to the needs of the agency as it evolves.
This is a forward-thinking solution to today’s policing demands which develops the individual who improves the organization that improves the community. The ICLD Credible Leadership curriculum educates officers for the new era in policing.
If not us, then who?
If not now, then when?
