Command & Leadership Program

Hasbrouck Heights Police Chief Michael J. Colaneri graduated from the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police West Point Command and Leadership Program on September 18, 2007.

Chief Colaneri graduated at the top of his class and also received "The Chief Harry Wilde Academic Achievement Award" for academic excellence.

Candidates with the greatest leadership potential are selected for this highly competitive and prestigious statewide program.

The 14-week program provides comprehensive leadership training for command-level law enforcement officers serving New Jersey’s municipal, county, state and university agencies.

The West Point Command and Leadership Program was created to address the needs of law enforcement agencies for continued leadership development.

The program is part of an active collaboration between the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police (N.J.S.A.C.O.P.) and the United States Military Academy at West Point.

The goal of the Leadership Program is to prepare law enforcement executives for tomorrow’s challenges by encouraging smart, thoughtful and reflective leadership as well as foster high professional standards of conduct within the law enforcement community.

The NJSACOP West Point Command & Leadership Program, is a unique blend of theory and application, adapting the fabled West Point model of command.

The United States Military Academy’s Department of Behavioral Science and Leadership developed this program based on their cadet training tailored to the leadership needs for law enforcement.

The Command & Leadership students study, learn and apply:

• Leadership as a science with logic, critical thinking, methodology and vision.

• Using organizational theory in a law enforcement context with police-oriented case studies.

• Behavioral and motivation theories.

• Individual communicating and counseling.

• Inter-group conflict management.

• Decision making.

Participants learn to be the leader - the decision maker / communicator / counselor / stress-manager - in a complex organization. Attending the ceremony was his wife Brenda, their children and granddaughter. ###
