MCPA Leadership Academy

MCPA's Leadership Academy typically accommodates 30 attendees per session. It is a 3-1/2-day course for middle management personnel in law enforcement. Participants will develop skills on how to make a distinct transition from street officer to supervisor. The classes are designed with understanding that effective supervision is critical to make a successful law enforcement agency.  Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, MCPA is scheduling a "virtual" online academy for May.  A September "commuter" academy will be held at MCPA's Training Center in New Brighton.
