The NOBLE Mentoring Potential CEOs Program: A Process to Develop Chiefs of Police

The National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) established a mentoring program for aspiring chief executive officers (CEOs) in July 2006 called the Mentoring Potential Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) Program. The concept is a mentoring model that will prepare law enforcement executives for leadership positions and improve their chances of effectively leading a law enforcement agency. Furthermore, the program’s primary goal is to help minority law enforcement aspiring executives overcome professional development and career progression challenges.
