Description

We are delighted to bring this Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, FL sponsored and Nationally Accredited Graduate Level Command and Leadership Program to the state of Florida. 

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.

In 2017, Dennis Lemma was elected Seminole County’s 10th Sheriff and was re-elected for his second term in 2020. As the County’s chief law enforcement officer, Sheriff Lemma leads a work force of more than 1,400 employees and manages a $150 million budget. In 1992, Sheriff Lemma began his career as a correctional officer with the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office. He later became a deputy sheriff and, over the course of 29 years, has worked in virtually every position within the agency, serving as the Sheriff’s Office primary spokesperson and receiving promotions from the ranks of sergeant, lieutenant, captain, major and chief deputy prior to becoming Sheriff.

In January 2019, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody named Sheriff Dennis Lemma chair of her Transition Advisory Committee Working Group on Opioid Abuse. As chair, Sheriff Lemma works closely with Attorney General Moody, and others, gathering information related to the best practices to stop the influx of deadly opioids, treat addiction, raise awareness and reduce the death toll of this crisis claiming 17 lives a day in Florida.

In July 2019, Florida First Lady Casey DeSantis announced the formation of a drug abuse prevention panel with Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma to serve as chair. The focus of the panel will be to discuss and determine best practices and innovative solutions to combat drug abuse throughout the state, specifically as it pertains to Florida’s youth.

Sheriff Lemma was selected in February 2020, for the President’s Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice to represent sheriffs on the Business and Community Development committee. In addition, in February 2020, Sheriff Lemma was appointed to represent Florida sheriffs as a member of the All Sheriffs’ Authority to address the mental health and substance abuse issues affecting communities across the nation, and its impacts on sheriff’s offices.

In February 2022, Sheriff Lemma was sworn in as the President of the Major County Sheriffs of America. The Major County Sheriffs of America is a professional law enforcement association of the largest elected sheriffs’ offices dedicated to preserving the highest integrity in law enforcement. In July 2021, Sheriff Lemma was nominated to serve as Chair on the Executive Board for the Florida Sheriffs Association.

In February 2021, Sheriff Lemma joined the Victoria’s Voice Foundation as a Board Member. The foundation’s mission is to bring awareness and prevention of substance abuse, especially amongst teenagers.

In March 2021, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office opened the Hope & Healing Center in partnership with AdventHealth. This unique health care and law enforcement collaboration will provide clinical support for substance abuse treatment.

A U.S. Marine Corps veteran and graduate of the FBI Academy, Sheriff Lemma holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and master’s degree in administrative leadership. He and wife, Diana, have two sons, Dylan and Dayne.
