The Utah Chiefs of Police Association held training for new police chiefs and supervisory officers interested in becoming a police chief. The training was held on Monday, September 12, 2016 through Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City. Here are what some of the attendees had to say about the class:

“This class is essential in developing skills and knowledge for those who want to set themselves apart as a Department Leader.” Lieutenant Adam Osoro, Woodscross PD

“This course is unlike any other leadership training I’ve attended and focused on real world issues in today’s policing environment.” Captain Jason Petersen, Utah Transit Authority Police

“This course exceeded my expectations. As a brand new Chief of nearly three months, the course provided me with a greater foundation and understanding of my role and the expectations of the City Manager, Mayor, and the department I serve.” Chief Darin Adams, Cedar City PD

“As a newly appointed Police Chief, it was nice to hear from, and have an open dialogue with, other Chief’s. I would definitely recommend this excellent training class.” Chief Chad Soffe, Garland City PD

“This wasn’t a traditional “leadership” class with the usual topics and presenters. The diversity in topics and presenters is one thing that set it apart as an excellent executive training.”
Assistant Chief Edward Biehler, Bountiful PD
