ky dept of criminal justiceRICHMOND, Ky. (4/22/13) – Law enforcement officers from 20 agencies across the commonwealth were recognized at a graduation ceremony Friday, April 19 for completing the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training’s Academy of Police Supervision.
APS, also called the sergeant’s academy, is a three-week, 120-hour training program targeted for newly promoted sergeants or officers who are on their agency’s promotion list to become sergeants.
While in APS, students participate in classes focusing on the role of a supervisor, as well as leadership, resolving conflict, managing diversity, monitoring officer performance, professional image, legal issues for supervisors, ethics, interpersonal communication, effective written communication, making decisions, solving problems, managing critical incidents, public speaking, emotional survival, budgeting, media relations and others.
The graduating class is the 49th to complete APS since the program began in 2003.
Ohio County Sheriff David Thompson served as guest speaker.
Russellville Police Department Sgt. Morris Kisselbaugh served as class speaker.
APS is a stepping stone to DOCJT’s Kentucky Leadership Institute, which consists of a series of three progressive leadership courses aimed at developing and shaping future and current leaders in law enforcement agencies across the commonwealth.
