Sergeant Leo Kotor of the Riverside Police Department recently graduated from the Northwestern University Center for Public Safety, Executive Management Program (EMP).
The three week program holds several sessions per year and is designed to prepare top and mid-level law enforcement managers and supervisors for senior agency positions.
The program covers several broad areas of study: organizational policy, officer wellness, management of the problem employee, police ethics, police discipline, media relations, legal updates, information technology, event planning, and a host of other topics.
The Center for Public Safety was established at Northwestern University in 1936 for the purpose of expanding the scope of university level education and training in traffic safety. Since then, the institute has broadened its original objective to include training in police operations and management.
The training was hosted by Elmhurst Police Department. Chief Tom Weitzel attended the graduation luncheon held in Oak Brook on Friday, February 28, 2020. Congratulations to Sergeant Leo Kotor on this significant accomplishment!
