Alvin ISD Police Department Sgt. David Ramirez recently earned the FBI’s Law Enforcement Executive Development Association (LEEDA) Trilogy Award.
The Award is issued to law enforcement officers who successfully complete all three of the FBI-LEEDA institutes — Supervisor Leadership Institute, Command Leadership Institute and Executive Leadership Institute.
The institutes enhance attendees’ leadership competencies by providing the officers with mutliple cutting-edge techniques, including leadership case studies, mentoring, performance management, risk management and personality diagnostics.
The FBI-LEEDA Supervisor Leadership Institute is a cutting edge 4 1/2-day program built especially for first-line supervisors and middle managers with the goal of enhancing their leadership competencies.
Command Leadership Institute's focus is to provide real life contemporary, best-practice strategies and techniques for those aspiring to command level assignments.
The Executive Leadership Institute follows the FBI-LEEDA “Cops Talking to Cops” model of professional development.
The seminar uses a wide range of source material and calls upon participants’ own professional experiences to facilitate individual development and learning.
Attendees study multiple subjects including trends in law enforcment and social and emotional intelligence.
The programs are specifically, and uniquely, designed to prepare law enforcement officers for command level positions.
The institutes provide officers with real world, contemporary, best-practice strategies and techniques.
Some of the scenarios institute attendees study include command disipline, change management and problem employees.
The various strategies will benefit Ramirez in his current assignment as the Manvel Zone Sergeant. Although Ramirez has only been with the AISD for a little more than two years, he is no stranger to the responsibilities of command.
For more than nine years, Ramirez served with the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office.
During his time at the GCSO, Ramirez was the agency’s mental health sergeant and a school resource officer.
He is also certified as an instructor in rapid response training.
