The Third Edition - Every Officer Is A Leader

Posted 4/1/2018

Read what Marshall Goldsmith writes about this book:

This book, and the Credible Leadership online course that accompanies it, is the most comprehensive preparation I have seen in the literature for all kinds of officers in the justice and public safety system to build better places to work and enhance public trust at the same time.  The authors’ vision of preparing officers and professional staff to lead early on in their careers in this broad set of leadership skills has been a missing link in previous training programs that I have reviewed. After you read this book and complete the course that accompanies it, you can use the book again and again as a reference guide to effective leadership performance.

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED)

Posted 8/2/2017

CPTED considerations on sites and in facilities look at the static measures that are in place that  assist and enhance the individual's ability to maintain control over their own security and safety. By ensuring that the environment supports this self-assessment, individuals gain empowerment and the ability to make decisions on how to transit though a location. This greatly increases confident movement on the respective site on in a facility, and can decrease fear and/or actual security/safety risks. It is always effort and costs well invested to take CPTED considerations into account.
