The New Supervisor Course is designed for individuals who are newly assigned or who will soon be appointed to their first supervisory role in a law enforcement agency. The course will cover the individual's role in the organization, transition to the new position, and leadership styles, including values, ethics, and principles. The course will assist new supervisors to develop skills in planning and organization, understand cultural and civil rights issues, and address employee relations. It also focuses on civil and criminal liability in law enforcement and special investigative issues.
New Supervisor Course is a four-day course.
Participants receive 40 hours of TCOLE credit.
New Supervisor Course is $250 per person for Texas Law Enforcement Officers if registered and paid by due date; $275 if after.
