Course Overview

Leadership in Police Organizations (LPO) is the flagship IACP leadership development training program. LPO is modeled after the training concept of dispersed leadership (“every officer a leader”) and delivers modern behavioral science concepts and theories uniquely tailored to the law enforcement environment.

The LPO program is a three-week training that takes place one week per month over the course of three consecutive months. Week one examines leading individuals, week two examines leading groups, and week three examines leading organizations.

By the end of the course, students should be able to:

  • Understand and apply modern behavioral science and leadership theories that affect human motivation, satisfaction, and performance in the achievement of organizational goals
  • Learn frameworks to translate knowledge and experience into effective leader actions
  • Integrate course content into daily leadership practices
  • Inspire a lifelong commitment to the study and practice of effective leadership
