Students Learn Valuable Leadership Skills 

Richard wanted to attain more and learn more about leadership.

The MSOL program intrigued him. As a patrol sergeant in Jacksonville, assigned to a training facility where he oversees training and compliance, Richard likes being a leader. “I want to learn,” he said. “My agency doesn’t teach leadership until you actually become a leader. Then, they will offer you some leadership courses.”

Once his classes began, Richard knew he had made the right decision. “I love (my cohort),” he said. His classmates, who he refers to as his brothers and sisters, have encouraged him throughout the program.
