(Kirksville, MO) —KPD congratulates Sergeant Justin Jones on his recent graduation from the seven month Police Chief Command College.


The Missouri Police Chief Command College is a course that provides valuable training for current and future leaders within the law enforcement community.  This course of instruction takes place one week a month, for seven months.  In addition to the training received through the course work, participants with a Bachelor’s degree can also obtain a Master’s degree through Lincoln University.  Courses topics include resource allocation, implicit/explicit bias, evidence management, employment law, crisis leadership, strategic planning, records management, budgeting, and liability.  Participants were also required to write essays covering a multitude of topics, keep a journal and make impromptu speeches.  This course brings together command level officers from all over the state.  Although the course of instruction is valuable, the time spent with fellow officers discussing past, present and future issues for law enforcement and the comradery was invaluable. 


“Sergeant Jones is to be congratulated on this prestigious long term accomplishment” said Police Chief Jim Hughes. “This is just one more example of the dedication and commitment of your local officers”.
