Michael J. Carroll, Chief of Police, West Goshen Township Police Department, West Goshen, Pennsylvania; Immediate Past President, IACP; Chair, IACP Foundation
he IACP Foundation and Target are proud to continue a collaborative effort to bring innovative, no-cost leadership and management training to law enforcement command staff across the United States. The Law Enforcement Business Fellowship (LEBF) is a two-week instructional program, based on several of Target’s most effective leadership development courses but revised and geared toward law enforcement command staff.
This third iteration of the fellowship hosts nine law enforcement leaders at Target’s corporate headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota, July 18–28. All costs associated with the program, such as compensation for instructors, travel to and from Minneapolis, lodging for two weeks, and some meals, will be covered by a grant from Target through the Foundation.
While the Foundation initially advertised this program to permit five scholarships, the LEBF is now able to accommodate a sixth candidate thanks to increased funding from Target. Additionally, Target has solicited participation from local law enforcement in the Saint Paul–Minneapolis area so that three additional candidates are able to commute to the class and benefit from this valuable community partnership. The diverse slate of candidates for this course—from municipal agencies to the U.S. military—is an outstanding representation of the range of contemporary law enforcement.
The Foundation received more than 50 applications from highly qualified individuals, each of which was reviewed by a subcommittee of the Foundation and Target team members. The curriculum for this pilot program has undergone review and approval by an educational subcommittee of the Foundation comprising active and sworn law enforcement executives, and the topics covered include community partnerships, change management, crisis leadership, media relations, finance, information security, and forensics.
Congratulations to the following successful candidates for the 2011 LEBF, and many thanks to Target for its continued investment in the future of professional policing. ■
