Law Enforcement Executive Development: An Assessment of an International Training Program

Robert R. Friedmann, Georgia State University

A university-based law enforcement executive development program offers international training for command staff from several countries. Training is provided by peers in a two-week intense program in a host country that focuses on a variety of administrative, strategic, tactical and logistical aspects of policing. An in-depth survey of 20 executive from Georgia and Utah who participated in a summer program in Israel provides insight into participants' perceptions as to the effectiveness and efficiency of this program. Participants provided rich quantitative and qualitative data as to program content, program management, value of content areas, field visits, training sessions and program accountability. The results will be presented along with suggestions for replication.
