As part of the Sylva Police Department’s goal to further the department’s education and training, Lieutenant Bruce Moore recently earned the FBI Law Enforcement Executive Development Association’s Trilogy Award. (FBI LEEDA)
Behind the scenes, the Sylva Police has been making major investments into the quality of our leadership. Attending the FBI LEEDA Law Enforcement Leadership Training program is one of those investments. According to the Sylva Police Department, they know the stakes are high in their profession and strong leadership is one of the most critical steps they can take to improve & maintain a high level of service for the community.
The FBI LEEDA program costs more than the department’s budget would typically allow, so the police department staff sought out and were able to use a scholarship from FBI LEEDA to help pay for this advanced training. The mission statement of the FBI-LEEDA is to advance the science and art of law enforcement leadership and promote the exchange of information to improve law enforcement management practices through training, education, and networking among police professionals across the United States and beyond.
“FBI LEEDA is some of the most premier law enforcement leadership training in our nation,” said Chris Hatton, Chief of Police for Sylva.
To achieve this award, Lieutenant Moore successfully completed (3) challenging 40-hour work week sessions of training. This is a total of 120 hours of top-notch law enforcement leadership training. To earn the FBI-LEEDA Trilogy Award an individual must successfully complete the Supervisor Leadership Institute, Command Leadership Institute and Executive Leadership Institute.
Lieutenant Moore is now the second graduate of this program at the Sylva Police Department.
There will be more graduates to follow as the department is able to schedule and afford the training.
