A 21st century credible law enforcement agency hires for character and trains for skill. From the beginning of a career with the agency the officer realizes both
their duty and obligation (with supererogation) to the organization and to themselves. With these intentions, the safety of every officer is of principal concern; you can’t have one without the other. Both the agency and the officer invest in physical, tactical, operational, mental and emotional training and education for maximized outcomes.
The Institute of Credible Leadership Development is a combination of character based decision-making, personal and professional development, and virtue based leadership educational program designed to improve officer safety because it indoctrinates officers in the qualities of being virtuous officers. Executives and officers learn how leadership and communication skills help create, and sustain, trust and mutual respect thus directly enhancing officer safety and building successful communities. Successful communities attract business and families and build stable economies.
Proven – The curriculum has been scientifically developed and tested since 2009.
Accessible – Officers can learn on-line 24/7 anywhere the Internet is available.

The Program empowers the 21st Century Credible Policing Agency with a set of mental, emotional and behavioral tools, going far beyond the tactical skills typically trained for. The program rounds out the officer and the agency, with a foundation in humanity critical to their individual success and mission. It is a counter mechanism to PTSD, corruption, wrongdoing and misconduct with a goal of growing into a Magnanimous “MAGNUS” Officer.
