Academy Application and Admission Guidelines (2016-2017)

The MCPA’s Advanced CLEO and Command Academy is designed for experienced police chiefs and commanders at local and state law enforcement agencies in Minnesota and neighboring states.

Applicants must have a minimum of 2 years of experience in a leadership role at their agencies and be looking to address a real-world issue in their departments. The issue must align with one of the six areas of study or course topics that make up the core curriculum of the academy.

The MCPA Professional Development Committee  (PDC) will review each application and select applicants annually based on these criteria:

1. Aptitude to clearly articulate the issue they are facing, how it falls into one of the Advanced CLEO and Command Academy’s six areas of study and why exploring research-based solutions in a professional learning group setting will help them address the issue

2. Experience in a leadership role

3. Ability and commitment to complete all requirements of the academy  (requirements listed on this application)

There are no pre-requisites for the Advanced CLEO and Command Academy. However, students are encouraged to attend the MCPA’s CLEO and Command Academy before enrolling.
