Description

We are delighted to bring this Indiana Sheriffs’ Association sponsored and Nationally Accredited Graduate Level Command and Leadership Program to Indianapolis, IN. 

The Command & Staff Program will prepare you as part of the vanguard of today’s professional policing leaders. You will learn practical skills and tools to succeed in an ever-changing dynamic environment.

The class focuses on effectively resolving the challenges of an accomplished career. This session of your professional development is a blended learning experience of on-line and classroom instruction complemented to enhance your learning.

Graduates of the program will leave with new colleagues, a diverse array of faculty from which the student can continue to consult, and ways to act ahead of change to create an optimistic future for law enforcement and the communities they serve.

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.

For the past 80 years, with the support of its membership and its supporters, The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association (ISA), has proven itself to be an asset to both those in law enforcement and the citizens of Indiana. The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association was first established in 1930 to promote better communication and exchange of information between the sheriffs and law enforcement personnel. In 1977 the association was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization and began to focus on providing education and training for sheriffs and department personnel throughout the state that was not otherwise available. The association continues to provide many training and educational programs for sheriffs and other law enforcement personnel. The association also provides college scholarships to qualified recipients and two annual leadership camps for teenage boys and girls each summer. The association is a membership organization that is supported and funded entirely from membership dues, corporate sponsorships, advertising in The Indiana Sheriff magazine and donations from individual and business members for special events.

Effective January 1, 2003, Zachary’s Law requires sheriff departments to jointly establish and maintain the Indiana Sheriffs’ Sex Offender Registry. This ISA website serves as an important resource for detailed information about individuals who, by law, must register as sex or violent offenders when moving into an Indiana county. The purpose of the new Federal registry is to inform all citizens about the identity, address, and appearance of those convicted of being sex and violent offenders who live, work, or study in Indiana. For more information, visit www.icrimewatch.net/indiana.

Your ISA has an important role in helping Indiana sheriffs and their personnel keep up to date on national and state legislative issues, new laws and mandates, and providing training to increase knowledge and skill sets. To be able to maintain current programs and keep pace for additional funding, the ISA has started a statewide re-branding, marketing and advertising campaign. The ISA is celebrating their 80th Anniversary (1930—2010), and under the leadership of new Executive Director, Steve Luce, the organization has undertaken a new and exciting challenge. “Building Communities of Trust in All 92 Indiana Counties” is the new mission and slogan of the eighty-year-old professional organization.

One of the many goals is to build better community awareness of the ISA and its many roles by increasing membership. The association plans to increase associate memberships by 50% by the end of 2011. Currently, the majority of paid individual and family dues are by members 45 years of age and older. The association wants to attract a younger demographic and is focusing on high school students, college students, and young families to get them involved in the many benefits the ISA provides.

After thoroughly researching membership renewals, Director Luce has determined that some members do not renew their membership due to issues with their county sheriff or members of his department. To alleviate this problem, the ISA Board of Directors has authorized the association to act as the point of contact for any member who feels they have concerns or issues with their county sheriff.

In the next 20 years leading up to the 100th Anniversary of The Indiana Sheriffs’ Association, the membership and supporters can expect to see many positive changes. This is all being done to ensure that the integrity of the Indiana sheriff is maintained and is the foundation on which we will all work together “Building Communities of Trust in All 92 Indiana Counties.”
