NSU’s Criminal Justice Institute to Graduate First Executive Leadership Class from Palm Beach County

FT. LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. – Thirteen law enforcement and public safety officers will graduate from an Executive Leadership Program conducted by Nova Southeastern University’s Criminal Justice Institute at a ceremony in Palm Beach Gardens on June 18.

The graduation serves as the culmination of a 17-week program designed for mid- and upper-level managers in law enforcement and public safety agencies. It’s the third Executive Leadership Program conducted by NSU’s Criminal Justice Institute but the first in Palm Beach County.

The graduation ceremony will take place at 10:30 a.m. at NSU’s West Palm Beach Student Educational Center (SEC) located at 3970 RCA Blvd. in Palm Beach Gardens.

The 13 participants represent five different law enforcement and public safety agencies: the North Palm Beach Police Department, City of Palm Beach Gardens, Broward Sheriff’s Office, Jupiter Police Department and Tequesta Police Department.  The officers took the class at the West Palm Beach SEC and were taught by a team of university professors and administrators as well as public safety professionals. The program gives participants a choice to work toward the Executive Leadership Certificate or earn undergraduate- or graduate-level credits toward a degree.

The Executive Leadership Program is a partnership among the Broward Sheriff’s Office, NSU and the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County that focuses on the development of key leadership competencies. The topics of study include budget and finance, leadership practices, organizational behavior, performance management, emerging technologies, and organizational change and strategic management.

Last year, NSU President Ray Ferrero Jr., the Broward Country Sheriff’s Office and Marta Prado, chairperson of the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County, entered into an agreement to cooperatively develop educational, research and service programs related to public safety. An official signing ceremony took place at NSU and marked the first time the three entities have come together to form an educational partnership. The venture provides for advanced leadership training for senior and supervisory public safety officers, access to NSU’s bachelor’s and master’s programs in criminal justice and shared resources in the development of training and research programs specifically related to meeting the needs of the criminal justice and public safety communities.
