Its purpose is to bring together groups of law enforcement officers who have been selected by Chiefs, Sheriffs and Executive Officers to establish a new instructional curriculum on supervisory skills and techniques used in modern policing.

This second graduating class will play a vital role in deciding how future first-line law enforcement supervisors will be trained. The school consisted of four 40-hour classes that included research assignments and additional long hours of study outside the classroom.
