In 29 classes we have worked with 592 sergeants from 113 departments.

95% recommend TSLP to their colleagues.

Sergeants judge the instructors either excellent (75%) or satisfactory (25%).

We review each of the in-depth evaluations that we ask each participant to complete at the end of every class. We ask for and receive thoughtful, candid feedback. More importantly, we ask for criticism. Just as we ask of our students, we examine honestly our strengths and weaknesses, to be of optimal service. We change and improve TSLP each time we offer it, based on the feedback from these evaluations.

Evidence tells us that The Sergeants’ Leadership Program has grown into a uniquely powerful professional development opportunity for first-line leaders. We believe now that it is the best choice for chiefs looking to invest in the long-term effectiveness and wellness of their supervisory leadership corps.

Arlington, MA Chief Frederick Ryan told us, “Arlington’s participants have returned from this training with a better understanding the important role they play in the organization and a renewed willingness to take ownership of that role by exercising leadership – rather than talking about it.”

TSLP is the best choice for both new and incumbent sergeants. In fact, the mix creates a powerful learning opportunity for both the veterans and the rookies.

Since 2009 we have been growing a program that makes a difference in the lives of the police sergeant students who complete it. Participants trust the respect and the sense of safety they feel in our classrooms and open up to really probing their strengths and weaknesses as leaders. We know they engage in quality learning about leadership.

About stephenomeara

My name is Jim Jordan. I have had the privilege of working with the Boston Police Department and hundreds more departments over my nearly 30-year career in police administration and city government. I am now teaching and consulting independently at I have learned the best of what I know from the thousands of smart, dedicated and ethical police personnel and scholars who have guided me along the way. My address is named for the great Reform commissioner of the Boston Police at the turn of the 20th century. Commissioner O'Meara died just a short while before the Strike in 1919. He was replaced by a vicious puppet (of Gov. Coolidge) named Edwin U. Curtis. Had O'Meara lived events may have turned out quite differently.
