According to the commission’s website, to be eligible to earn the certification the chief must hold the senior law enforcement certification, possess a minimum of five years experience as a police chief and successfully complete a police supervision or management course of instruction of four weeks or more duration. The goal of the commission is to ensure competency within the law enforcement community by providing up-to-date training for all employees.
