Public Safety Employees Graduate Leadership Academy

Over the last six months, 11 Public Safety employees have participated in our fifth DPS Leadership Academy.

The Leadership Academy was developed as a way to bring members of both the Fire and Police departments together to strengthen their skills as leaders.  Its purpose is to develop quality leadership within our Police and Fire departments. The program included both internal and external experts who spoke on the topics of Pride and OwnershipCritical Thinking & Decision MakingLeadership & Communication StylesGenerational DifferencesEmployee Relations and Southlake’s Strategy. This program was originally made possible by a very generous anonymous donation facilitated through SDCA.

On September 19th, we celebrated the graduation of the program participants listed below. At the graduation ceremony, each participant spoke about what they learned from the program and how they will use it to become a better leader. The program was very successful and we look forward to offering it again in the future.
