There are many challenges to becoming an effective first-line law enforcement supervisor. The Police Supervisor In-Service Training (POSIT) program provides first-line supervisors with the necessary tools to be strong leaders within their organization and community. Specifically, POSIT can help prepare first-line supervisors to meet the challenge of “critical shift” into a supervisory position. The transition from being a line officer to a supervisor requires a specific mind and skill set that is necessary to being an integral part of the management team.
The Penn State Justice and Safety Institute (JASI) is pleased to partner with our co-sponsor to present this intensive and innovative program designed to provide a better understanding of the roles, duties, and functions of a first-line supervisor. This highly interactive four-and-a-half-day program is designed for first-line supervisors from all levels of law enforcement and for those under consideration for promotion. All of our courses are instructed by current practitioners or recently retired executives. Key concepts and topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
|Measurable standards of performance||
|Legal aspects of supervision||
|Marginal or problem employees||
|Discipline as a supervisory tool||
|Hostile work environments||
