Four NKY Officers Graduate from Executive Development Program

Nineteen law enforcement executives from agencies across Kentucky, including four from Northern Kentucky, recently graduated from the Criminal Justice Executive Development program, an advanced leadership course designed for supervisors at small- and medium-size agencies from across the state.

Alexandria Police Chief Mike Ward served as guest speaker.

The 19 graduates comprised the Department of Criminal Justice Training’s 22nd CJED class. Franklin Police Chief Roger Solomon served as class speaker.

CJED is a four-week, 168-hour program that focuses on identifying, analyzing and solving problems as well as leadership, personnel administration, operations, fiscal management, executive and environmental relationships.

The purpose of the course is to provide students with the academic background, leadership skills and management techniques required for the future. Each session enhances leadership abilities and encourages the development of visionary thinkers.

To take part in CJED, potential students must be supervisors who rank sergeant or above. They must apply for entrance into the program and be selected by a committee of CJED graduates from across the commonwealth. 

Students attend CJED courses for one week each month for four months.

Local graduates:

Brian J. Ferayorni, Independence Police Department

Jonathan W. McClain, Bellevue Police Department

Matthew Meyer, Campbell County Police Department

Natalie Selby, Alexandria Police Department
