Leadership Program

The Department begins its delivery of the Redwood City Police Leadership Program

This week, the Redwood City Police Department delivered the first block of the Redwood City Police Leadership Program. This 12-month course offers practical rank-specific leadership skills to newly promoted sergeants and lieutenants, as well as certain civilian management personnel within the Department. Later in the year, a separate curriculum will be offered to officers at the line level to ensure that leadership ability is identified early and thoroughly developed at all organizational levels.

Participants of The Redwood City Police Leadership Program meet for a full day each month to receive lectures, participate in practical exercises and hear guest speakers discuss leadership strategies and theories within the context of the law enforcement profession. Each monthly instructional block builds on the last while incorporating leadership materials derived from various military and university graduate school organizational leadership curricula. Participants also receive structured mentoring from senior commanders throughout the program who guide them as they select and complete a visionary capstone project that is directly related to their work assignments.

Ten lieutenants and sergeants, as well as a Communications manager, are currently enrolled in the course.

For more information on the Redwood City Police Leadership Program, please contact the program, facilitator Captain John Spicer at 650-780-7130.
