Four law enforcement officers from the Bossier Sheriff’s Office graduated from an intensive eight-week-long 50th School of Executive Leadership at the Center for American and International Law in Plano, Texas Friday morning.
Asst. Chief Tony Staton, Chief of Criminal Division; Maj. Charles Gray, Administration of Corrections Division; Capt. Rodney Boyer, Warden of Bossier Medium Security Facility; and Capt. Gary Paddy, Supervisor of Courthouse Bureau, attended the nationally-recognized leadership school March 3 – April 25. The school prepares senior-level law enforcement managers and administrators for leadership in a complex world of public executives. They also learn how to communicate plans and programs to their colleagues and the public and develop strategies for personal and organizational success in politically-charged environments.
“Promoting the professional and personal growth of our deputies adequately prepares our supervisors to ensure the Bossier Sheriff’s Office continues to be one of the best law enforcement agencies around,” Sheriff Whittington said. “Our agency is only as good as our deputies, and having the best trained managers and supervisors will ensure we are able to meet the public safety needs of our residents for years to come.”
