Pinellas Deputies Graduated from Leadership Program
Two Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office lieutenants were graduated from the 19th Senior Leadership Program that was held by the Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Two Pinellas Sheriff’s deputies were graduated Friday (Dec. 2) from a statewide leadership program.
Lieutenants Steve Wagner and Cynthia Gibson successfully completed the Florida Criminal Justice Institute’s, 19th Senior Leadership Program, at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Wagner has been with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office since September 1990; Gibson, since March 1994.
The graduating class included 32 senior executives representing criminal justice agencies from across the state and who serve in leadership roles within their agencies.
The participants met for seven weeks over a 10-month period and took classes on topics such as demographics, budgeting, and future forecasting as it relates to criminal justice and strategic planning. The academy was held in Tallahassee.
The goal of the Senior Leadership Program is to prepare Florida’s criminal justice leadership for the challenging and changing demands of the future. Class participants studied the trends and events that will challenge criminal justice professionals and the state in the years to come. They also examined the leadership skills necessary to create and lead the changes that lie ahead.
The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute, established within the FDLE and affiliated with the State University System, was established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature to address the need for an innovative and multi-faceted approach to the education and training of criminal justice professionals.
