dept criminal justiceFRANKFORT, Ky. (3/16/13) – Law enforcement executives from 19 agencies across Kentucky graduated today from the Criminal Justice Executive Development program, an advanced leadership course designed for supervisors at the state’s small- and medium-size agencies.
 
Guest speaker, Louisville Metro Police Department Chief Steve Conrad, shared effective leadership strategies from his 33-year-career experiences with the graduates.
 
“While this information will help you with your careers, the real deal for you is to use this information and figure out how to make the experience better for the people you’re responsible for,” Conrad said. “That’s what leadership is all about. Your job as a leader is to always, always, always do what’s right.
 
The 20 graduates comprised the Department of Criminal Justice Training’s 15th CJED class. Mount Sterling Police Chief David Charles served as class speaker.
 
CJED is a five-week program that focuses on identifying, analyzing and solving problems as well as leadership, personnel administration, operations, fiscal management, executive and environmental relationships.
 
The purpose of the course is to provide students with the academic background, leadership skills and management techniques required for the future. Each session enhances leadership abilities and encourages the development of visionary thinkers.
 
To take part in CJED, potential students must be supervisors who rank sergeant or above. They must apply for entrance into the program and be selected by a committee of CJED graduates from across the commonwealth.
 
Students attend CJED courses for one week each month for five months.
 
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.
