INTERESTED IN CLEE?
Congratulations on successfully completing PELC! You now join the alumni of over 2,000 other law enforcement officers who graduated from PELC. Now that you’ve graduated, you may want to continue your executive leadership training by applying for the Certified Law Enforcement Executive program, commonly known as CLEE. CLEE is the pinnacle executive leadership program offered by the Law Enforcement Foundation.
The Certified Law Enforcement Executive (CLEE) is a formal program of leadership training presented by the Ohio Law Enforcement Foundation for police officers (sergeant and higher rank) who are at the executive level or who wish to progress to executive levels in their agency. Preparation includes self-study and a day of “in-residence study” with a highly qualified instructor for each of the nine modules. Study materials include required readings from books and articles, chapter exercises, and case studies. Participants will be evaluated on the nine different learning modules through written tests or case studies over a 14-month period, and through an oral capstone presentation at the conclusion of the course. Graduate credit can be arranged through Tiffin University, and Franklin University, Columbus.
Admittance to CLEE requires candidates to meet a minimum of 500 career points that considers these dimensions: law enforcement and executive experience, formal education, continuing education, and professional related experience, including: professional service, community service, scheduled speaking and instruction, articles published, and honors received.
Once a student successfully graduates from CLEE, they must maintain their CLEE certification by re-certifying every three years where continued involvement in the above dimensions are reviewed.
The nine inter-related modules covered in CLEE include:
- Vision, Mission, and Guiding Principles
- Managing and Leading the External Environment
- Interpersonal Skills
- Human Resources and Team Facilitation
- Change Management
- Strategic Planning
- Police Resource Allocation and Budgeting
- Organizational Risk Management
PELC Alumni Association
As a graduate of PELC, you are invited to join the PELC Alumni Association (PELCAA). The PELC Alumni Association (PELCAA) supports the Police Executive Leadership College (PELC) program. PELCAA grants scholarships to each PELC class to assist deserving individuals to help defray the total cost to attend PELC. The Alumni Association also purchased for PELC: instructional books, audio-visual equipment, and other items to help enhance the students’ educational experience.
One of the key functions for PELCAA is the annual retrainer which provides current police executive management training for PELC graduates. The two-day retrainer is held at a Central Ohio area hotel and typically takes place in February.
