Executive Leadership Development
In partnership with public and corporate sectors as well as civic groups, GILEE offers law enforcement executive leadership development programs to law enforcement executives by focusing on peer-to-peer on-site training. Top U.S. law enforcement officials participate in these experiential programs to learn from best practices and about the latest technologies in policing and public safety. They learn from expert peers who frequently handle bombings and other terrorist activities, as well as the latest advances in community policing, and homeland security policies. They continue to address other unique crime problems and the need to balance a variety of requests for public safety service through innovative multifaceted partnerships. International delegations come to Georgia to study how the U.S. deals with emergency management, homeland security, violent crime, special events, community policing, and the myriad of issues concerning urban and rural policing. Participants then apply aspects of what they learned to improve their agencies and the services they provide.
