LAPD Officers Honored for Leadership Training Program

9:00 a.m.

Los Angeles: The West Point Leadership Program staff from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) will be commended for their contributions to improving law enforcement leadership training. Their tireless efforts and dedication to duty have certainly brought distinction to the City of Los Angeles and to the Los Angeles Police Department.

In 1992, former LAPD Assistant Chief Jessie Brewer identified the need to improve leadership training on the LAPD and contacted the United States Military Academy at West Point for their support.

In 1994, the LAPD sent Deputy Chief Rick Dinse, Commanders John Moran, George Gascon, Lieutenant Kathleen Sheen, and Sergeant Stanley Lemelle to participate in a Faculty Development Workshop on leadership at the United States Military Academy at West Point. The same participants returned from West Point and spent many months designing leadership training and developing a cadre of instructors to teach in the newly created West Point Leadership Program.

The West Point Leadership Program is considered to be one of the finest law enforcement leadership programs in the world, attracting law enforcement executives from around the world to observe how the training is conducted.

To date, the West Point Leadership Program has over 500 graduates from law enforcement agencies from throughout the Western United States. The program graduates include many Chiefs of Police, County Sheriffs, Deputy and Assistant Chiefs, as well as countless Commanders, Captains and Lieutenants of Police.

The current West Point Leadership Program staff consisting of Lieutenant William Murphy, Sergeant Gerald Hallanger, Sergeant Michael Sayre, Sergeant Robert Medkeff, and Officer Brendan McCarty will be honored by the City Council for continuing the tradition of providing the very best leadership training available in law enforcement.
