CLI Graduation | Public Safety Training

I recently attended the Civilian Leadership Institute (CLI) five month leadership program and can confidently say it was by far the best training I have received in the 30 years of my career. The topics are timely and on-point for civilian supervisors and managers. The presenters are experienced, knowledgeable and engaging. Their energy always left me wanting more at the end of each session – and eagerly looking forward to the next session.


I made personal and professional connections that I will forever cherish. I would recommend this class for any line level employee who has supervisor potential, new supervisors finding their way, or current supervisors in need of a kick-start!
