Police Supervisory In-Service Training (POSIT)<\/h1>

There are many challenges to becoming an effective first-line law enforcement supervisor. The Police Supervisor In-Service Training Program (POSIT) provides first-line supervisors with the necessary tools to be strong leaders within their organization and community. Specifically, POSIT will help prepare first-line supervisors to meet the \nchallenge of \"critical shift\" into a supervisory position. The transition from being a line officer to a supervisor requires a specific mind and skill set that is necessary to being an integral part of the management team. <\/p>\n

The Penn State Justice and Safety Institute (JASI) is pleased to present this intensive and innovative program designed to provide a better understanding of the roles, duties, and functions of a first-line supervisor. This highly interactive four-and-a-half-day program is designed for first-line supervisors from all levels of law enforcement and for those under consideration for promotion.
