Senior Management Training

The Murrieta Police Department consistently sends police managers to both the National Academy and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) Senior Management Institute for Police (SMIP); both programs are recognized nationally.

FBI National Academy - Quantico, Virginia

Since 1935, over 50,000 law enforcement officials have graduated from the National Academy (NA). Internationally known for its academic excellence, the National Academy Program, held at the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Academy in Virginia, offers 10 weeks of advanced communication, leadership and fitness. On average NA graduates have 21 years of law enforcement experience and usually return to their agencies to serve in executive level positions.

Police Executive Research Forum Senior Management Institute for Police (SMIP) - Boston University

Since 1980, over 5,000 law enforcement executives have graduated from SMIP. The program provides senior police executives with intensive training in the latest management concepts and practices used in business and government. It also features discussions of the most challenging issues facing law enforcement executives today. A demanding three-week course, SMIP brings together faculty from top universities, successful law enforcement chief executives, and subject matter experts from the private sector. It is designed for mid- to upper-level police executives who ultimately will lead police agencies throughout the United States and other participating countries.

Executive Development Course (EDC)

The California Police Officer Standards and Training Executive Development Course (EDC) is the last in a series of professional development programs offered by POST and is intended to enhance the leadership potential and capabilities of law enforcement executives. The EDC is an 80-hour course conducted in two separate one-week sessions.  The EDC addresses a broad range of contemporary topics, issues and trends relevant to the law enforcement executive.
