There are several initiatives associated with the New Executive E-Source:


The New Executive E-Source


The New Executive E-Source is designed to provide easy access to resources for newly appointed or elected law enforcement executives. The information and resources are categorized into topical areas that are common concerns for newer executives in smaller law enforcement agencies. Please utilize the Send Feedback forms located on each page to send program staff your impressions and suggestions for improved layout and additional resources. The New Executive E-Source is provided by the Smaller Agency Technical Assistance Program and the New Police Chief Mentoring Project. This initiative is the result of partnership between the International Association of Chiefs of Police and the Bureau of Justice Assistance.
