Chief Daniel Johnson recently completed an intensive management training program at the Bill Blackwood Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas (LEMIT) and graduated from the 13th class of the Texas Constables Leadership College in a ceremony held on October 26, 2018.
The 13th Class of the Texas Constables Leadership College included 21 Constables/Deputies from different precincts throughout Texas. The 13th class graduates completed three modules of training, including all aspects of modern law enforcement management techniques, styles and philosophies. This program gives a new generation of leadership assessment tools, which will meet the existing, but often difficult challenges of the new economy. Each participant created a Personal Leadership Philosophy paper reflecting their views on leadership, leadership practice, vision for their organization and community and plans for professional growth. All 21 Constable/Deputies from the different precincts throughout Texas were awarded a diploma and insignia of the professional designation.
