Jan Mirikitani leads the class in group discussions on the topics listed below. The goal is to get Supervisors to consistently commit to their department’s missions for public safety & to develop their subordinates to achieve those outcomes.

It is also about understanding their role in building community trust. First-line supervisors have come from the ranks but must now embody community & department goals bigger than their friendships with other Officers. The training focuses on the Supervisor’s communications skills and commitment to Officer wellness & morale.


  • Communication Assessment: their personal communication style & demeanor: assertive, aggressive, or nonassertive (passive).
  • Leading/developing new Officers, laterals, quality Officers, & retired on duty.
  • Working for Supervisor consistency between squads.
  • Supervisors are gate keepers of maintaining internal & external department ethics.
  • Customer service cored in Peel’s Principles of Policing.
  • Why department confidentiality matters, including personal usage of social media.
  • Professionally handling public complaints.
  • Proofing & editing Officer reports towards quality narratives.
  • How to coach Officers for improved performance & correct violations.
  • Assessing & managing difficult & toxic employees & their impact on department morale, & public trust, if left unchecked
  • Group practice with objectives related scenarios
