Advanced CLEO and Command Academy

Addressing 21st Century Public Safety Challenges in Minnesota Communities


Exclusive training partner and Co-host of MCPA’s Advanced CLEO and Command Academy

Over nine months, two dozen Minnesota law enforcement leaders from a wide range of agencies (rural, metro, state and tribal) took part in the Association's inaugural Advanced CLEO and Command Academy. The cohort-style program featured a combination of in-class and distance learning. It is rooted in the six pillars of the President's report on 21st Century Policing. In addition to the class work, attendees researched and developed real-world strategies to solve challenges in their agencies.  Over the summer and early fall, the MCPA will roll out their reports and research on this page:
