    The FBI-LEEDA Executive Leadership Institute (ELI) is an innovative 4 1/2-day program designed for executive-level law enforcement leaders and those leaders aspiring to executive-level leadership positions. ELI focuses on the emerging challenges facing 21st century police leaders, as well as planning and navigating the political waters of executive leadership. This highly interactive program follows the FBI-LEEDA “cops talking to cops" model of professional development where students will engage in guided leadership discussions with instructors and other students. The course first looks inward to identify the forces of change and emerging trends within law enforcement, such as the challenges of recruiting, hiring and leading different social generational cohorts and different cultural groups within the workforce. The ELI also presents leadership strategies that emphasize the importance of public trust and legitimacy, officer wellness, social and emotional intelligence.

    Dodge City Police Department Presents: 

    99 Signs of Danger 

    99 Signs of Danger™ this class will make any law enforcement officer much more aware of impending danger. 99 Signs  of Danger exposes the many indicators warning law enforcement officers that they are in danger of being attacked,  imminently attacked, and about to be involved in a fight or flight situation. The creator, retired NYPD SGT, Lou Savelli  says, “You can’t win a fight, you don’t know that you’re in”! This class exposes signs of impending attack, armed suspects,  multiple subject danger situations, vehicle stop danger signs, and a host of other indicators. The most important objective  of this class is Officer Safety. It is the ability to recognize a threat from someone or something (Threat  Recognition). Unfortunately, in the field of law enforcement, dangerous situations can arise within a blink of an eye or  when you least expect it. Preparing to defend yourself against a threat is important but it coincides with the belief that you  can be prepared for any type of threat if you can identify it before or when it is happening. More importantly, if you can  identify a threat, you can create a tactical edge rather than merely be the defender. Thus, you can have the ability to better  prepare your defense, retreat, or offense in order to conquer the threat. 

    Topics of Instruction: 

    • 99 Signs things are about to go bad; and what you can do to protect yourself 
    • Articulating the “Totality of the Circumstances”  
    • Armed Suspect Characteristics
