Strategic and Succession Planning for Chiefs of Police & Seconds in Command

In these volatile and uncertain times, the need to prioritize and stabilize our resources, budget and programs has never been greater.  Today, both private and public sector organizations are developing and updating their business (strategic) plans to continue their mission and improve the likelihood of success. Part of this plan is examining staff development, retention, and recruitment and training the current and future leaders of our agencies.

The California Police Chiefs Association (CPCA) has designed an intensive, one-day course for Chiefs of Police and Seconds-in-Command to give them the skills necessary to create these plans expeditiously and cost effectively.  This class will examine the strategic and succession planning processes and combines the discussion of current strategic and succession plans with interactive exercises.

Areas to be covered include:

  • Change Management
  • Identifying Values, Mission Statement and Vision
  • Assessment
  • Issue Identification
  • Goals and Strategies
  • Workforce Analysis and Gap Identification
  • Staff Development, Recruitment, Retention and Knowledge Transfer Strategies
  • Evaluation Measures

Students will be provided with a variety of strategic plans and material necessary to develop and implement agency plans.
