Conference Spotlight: Smaller Agency Certificate Track

If you are a police executive in a department serving an area with 50,000 or fewer residents, come to IACP Annual Conference 2013 from October 19 through October 23! The Smaller Agency Certificate Track is specifically designed to address the distinctive challenges facing executives of smaller police departments. This year, we have 13 different topics. Two workshops focus on leadership and management issues for executives transitioning to a new agency and will be offered twice:

Transforming Smaller Police Agencies into High Performance Organizations:  Paul Schultz, chief of the Canon City Police Department in Colorado, has been successful in transforming smaller police departments into high-performing organizations, and is presenting his expertise at IACP 2013! Be sure to catch this session, offered on Saturday, October 19, at 10:00 AM and again on Monday, October 21, at 8:00 AM.

Transitioning to a Smaller Department: A Survival Guide for the New Chief:  If you are facing obstacles transitioning from a large police department to a smaller agency, this workshop is the one for you! Three police chiefs from Massachusetts offer their expertise on making the switch as smooth as possible. This seminar is given twice, on both Sunday, October 20, at 8:00 AM and Wednesday, October 23, at 10:00 AM.

The Smaller Agency Certificate Track also allows you to network with other police executives in smaller agencies. Share experiences and information with each other and learn how to apply realistic strategies and innovations to your agency. Don’t miss the Smaller Agency Certificate Track, offering sessions from October 19 until October 23!
