8/24/2007
 
The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute announces the graduation today of 15 senior managers from the Executive Leadership Seminar, class two, at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement headquarters in Tallahassee. The graduates represent criminal justice agencies around the state.

The goal of the Executive Leadership Seminar is to prepare Florida's Criminal Justice leaders for the challenging and changing demands of the future. Class participants study trends and events that will challenge criminal justice professionals and our state as we enter the future and examine the leadership skills necessary to create and lead the change that lies ahead.

The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute, established within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and affiliated with the State University System, was established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature who recognized the need for an innovative and multifaceted approach to the education and training of criminal justice professionals. The Executive Institute offers four programs to address the training needs of criminal justice professionals. The Chief Executive Seminar was developed to meet the educational needs of agency chief executives, the Senior Leadership Program was designed for the leadership in criminal justice agencies at the middle management level, the Florida Leadership Academy is designed to meet the need for formal training at the entry level of supervision. The most recent addition to the Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute is the Executive Leadership Seminar; this was created for the command staff level in criminal justice organizations. The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute can now address the leadership development needs in organizations at every level of supervision, from sergeant to the chief executive officer.

Since the Executive Institute began 17 years ago, 935 individuals representing agencies throughout the criminal justice community have completed leadership programs offered by the Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute.
