Interested In PELC?
Congratulations on successfully completing STEP! You are now an alumnus along with over 800 other first line supervisors who successfully completed STEP. Now that you’ve graduated from STEP, you may want to continue your executive leadership training by applying to the Police Executive Leadership College (PELC).

PELC is administered by the Ohio Law Enforcement Foundation. PELC was founded in 1986 and to date over 2,000 law enforcements executives have completed the program.

PELC is a three – week executive leadership training program spread out over three months each session. PELC is based on the premise that leadership skills can be learned, and that given the opportunity for feedback and practice, executives can substantially improve their abilities to lead. PELC provides law enforcement executives with one of those rare moments in their professional careers to learn how to practically apply leadership concepts. It is an intensive learning experience focused on leadership skills vital to long term personal success and change in the organization — both for the benefit of the community.

Congratulations on successfully completing PELC. You are a now alumnus along with over 2,000 other law enforcement officers who successfully completed PELC.

Participants will be evaluated on the 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 501 career points that considers these dimensions: law enforcement and executive experience, formal education, continuing education, and professional related experience.
