PINELLAS COUNTY – Lt. Jeff Kanehl and Sgt. Michael Sherman were graduated Friday (April 7) from the Florida Criminal Justice Institute’s, Florida Leadership Academy, at the Southwest Florida Public Service Academy.

The graduating class included 39 first-line supervisors from across the state who serve in leadership roles within their agencies.
The graduates met for four week-long sessions at the Southwest Florida Public Service Academy in Fort Myers. They learned skills necessary to support the needs of their agencies and their communities as they prepared for future challenges.

The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute, which is housed within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and affiliated with the State University System, was established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature to address the need for an innovative and multifaceted approach to the education and training of criminal justice professionals.
