Carefully Chosen – Curriculum topics are drawn from survey data gathered from Kansas law enforcement agencies as well as a comprehensive review of other national law enforcement leadership programs (NA, NU, SPI, etc.).
Competency Based – LELA programs focus on core leadership, management, and law enforcement competencies. Sound leadership principles and effective management skills apply equally to law enforcement agencies of all sizes. Most curriculum is similarly applicable.
Theory Meets Practice – LELA programs incorporate a blended learning approach where academic theory helps to inform independent critical thinking and practical application.
Learning from One Another – Curriculum is designed to encourage and support group dialogue and information sharing to build a network for excellence in Kansas law enforcement.
