dept criminal justicePADUCAH, Ky. (8/26/13) – Law enforcement officers from 19 agencies across the commonwealth were recognized at a graduation ceremony today for completing the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training’s Academy of Police Supervision, including a McCracken County Sheriff’s Office Deputy.
 
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 53rd to complete APS since the program began in 2003.

Louisville Metro Police Department Major Kim Kraeszig served as guest speaker.
 
APS is a stepping stone to the Department of Criminal Justice Training’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.
 
The Department of Criminal Justice Training is a state agency located on Eastern Kentucky University’s campus. The agency is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies and was the first accredited public safety-training program in the nation. In 2006, the academy also became the first law enforcement-training academy in the nation to be designated as a CALEA flagship agency.
