View Sessions & Apply

Supervisor School is designed to equip frontline supervisors with the concepts and practical tools needed to effectively lead and supervise law enforcement personnel.  The curriculum blends the KU Public Management Center's award-winning supervisory leadership training (SLT) with leading-edge law enforcement training to deliver highly engaging and relevant content that supervisors can put to immediate use in their departments.  

LELA Supervisor School

Supervisor School is a one-week course designed for newly promoted front-line supervisors.  It is based on our Supervisory Leadership Training (SLT) but is tailored to the unique needs of law enforcement staff, and the way roles change with promotions.  Participants will expand their toolbox of knowledge and practical solutions and ideas to be successful in their supervisory roles.  

Time Commitment

Supervisor School is a 40 hour course that takes place over a week.  Class generally meets from 8:00-4:00.  We offer 2 courses a year at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center, and have added a Kansas City Metro Area session once a year.  

Investing in Supervisor School

Like the public service sector, supervisors receive minimal training to equip them to perform in their new role.  They have moved from a colleague to a boss, particularly in law enforcement, and need assistance in making that transition.  Supervisor School gives participants hands-on training from law enforcement professionals who have been in their shoes, and have learned what it takes to successfully manage as a supervisor.  


The cost for Supervisor School is $1,295 per person. 

The fee covers tuition and materials.  Participants are expected to secure meals and lodging for the week.  

Classes in 2024 will meet at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center & in Olathe

I enjoyed this class.  There were a lot of concepts presented and discussed.  It challenged me to think about how I can apply the various leadership concepts to my everyday life. - Supervisor School participant April, 2022
