The LEC, along with our partners at Saint Louis University and the Saint Louis Police Academy, produced the annual leadership training at SLU. One change that was incorporated this year was the inclusion of corporate security officers. Corporate students that attended the event report that they found it very helpful and were glad that they attended. The law enforcement students reported that they enjoyed the inclusion of the corporate students and found that many corporate approaches would be beneficial to law enforcement.
We are in the process of arranging a meeting with the Saint Louis Area Corporate Security Leaders Organization (SLACSLO). At that meeting we will report the comments of the students in the hope of enhancing and expanding the corporate security role in the class.
We are also in the initial stages of planning a day of law enforcement training for our police departments in the Southeast Missouri region. We reached to key police chiefs in SEMO and will be meeting with them in the first week of July to discuss potential topics, locations and other details.
