A Collier County Sheriff’s Office chief is among 17 recent graduates of the Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute’s Chief Executive Seminar.
Legal & Court Services Department Chief Michael Hedberg and his fellow graduates, representing criminal justice agencies from around Florida, were recognized at a ceremony in Tallahassee on Nov. 19.
Each graduate serves in a leadership role within his or her agency. Over a three-month period, the participants met for one week a month to take classes on topics such as managing generations, Florida economics, risk management, succession planning, and implementing strategic change.
The goal of the Chief Executive Seminar is to prepare Florida’s criminal justice leadership for the challenging demands of the future. Participants study trends and events that may affect criminal justice professionals and Florida, while developing new leadership skills to address the changes that lie ahead.
The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute, established within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and affiliated with the state university system, was established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature in recognition of the need for an innovative and multifaceted approach to the education and training of criminal justice professionals.
Chief Hedberg is a graduate of the 48th Chief Executive Seminar.
