Program Goals

The long-term goal of the program is to add to the leadership skill sets of each participant; it is also to contribute to the body of knowledge of law enforcement through the completion of significant foresight-based research.

Leadership principles required to inspire and influence the future direction of the agency.
Strategies and tactics to identify emerging issues and provide a proactive response to deliver results with confidence.
Advanced hand-on tools, skills and knowledge necessary to anticipate and prepare for the future success.
Fundamental and necessary working methods and benefits of sharing information.
Use of teams and stakeholders in problem solving for better outcomes.
The core focus on the topic* selected for capstone will be one that can be approached in one of two ways:

The student can select a significant issue affecting law enforcement and their communities today which are having a significant impact, and for which there are no easy answers. These issues are commonly referred to as “wicked problems” and can range from something affecting one’s own agency, the state or region of that agency, or the larger profession. The focus of the research would then be to clearly define not only the symptoms and problems associated with the issue, but its underlying causes. Using that data, foresight tools and concepts will be used to identify emerging issues (technologies, social movements, political action, etc.) that may affect that issue.
The second approach would be to identify a significant emerging issue of relevance to the future of law enforcement. The scope of the research can be how an issue might affect a function in policing, an agency size or type, or a specific issue the agency will encounter as a result of the emerging issue’s impact. This research would start from the “outside-in” and scan the horizon for what may be next, rather than focusing on what is already here, and then devising strategies to mitigate adverse outcomes
The students in programs with capstone will select a topic for research and then learn the tools and concepts they will use to complete the Futures Portfolio.

The course graduates will receive a National Command & Staff College diploma and a MAGNUS CENTURION Neck or Chest Green color Ribbon Medallion.

With this, the graduates become a member of the MAGNUS CENTURION Network for enhanced networking and future re-training and development.
