ARKANSAS LEADER was designed specifically for law enforcement executives and other leaders within the criminal justice system. This executive level training is taught by distinguished lecturers and takes a multi-faceted approach to examining current leadership principles. A strong emphasis is placed on leadership principles, decision making, and mentoring the next generation of law enforcement leaders.

The ARKANSAS LEADER program is jointly sponsored by the Criminal Justice Institute and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and has been designated as one of the FBI’s sixteen Command Colleges.
