INTERESTED IN PELC?
Congratulations on successfully completing STEP! You are now an alumnus along with over 600 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 each year graduates at least two classes (Spring and Fall.) To date, over 2,000 law enforcement executives are proud graduates of PELC.
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.

INTERESTED IN CLEE?
Congratulations on successfully completing PELC. You are a now alumnus along with over 2,000 other law enforcement officers who successfully completed PELC. Now that you’ve graduated from PELC, you may want to continue your executive leadership training by applying for the Certified Law Enforcement Executive program, commonly known as CLEE.
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:
- Change Management
- Vision, Mission, and Guiding Principles
- Interpersonal Skills
- Human Resources and Team Facilitation
- Practical Leadership Models for Law Enforcement Executives
- Strategic Planning
- Police Resource Allocation and Budgeting
- Organizational Risk Management
