In 2014, Town of Vienna Police Department Master Patrol Officers (MPO) James Sheeran and Jarod Evans graduated from the Leadership in Police Organizations program. The program was held in conjunction with the Fairfax County Criminal Justice Academy.
The Leadership in Police Organizations (LPO) training program is based on a behavioral science approach to leadership. The original course material was developed and taught for many years at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. The three-week course focuses on the systematic development of leaders at all levels of an organization. The concept is “every officer is a leader.”
The Leadership in Police Organizations program was held at the Fairfax County Criminal Justice Academy in Chantilly. The class included personnel from a total of seven Virginia area law enforcement agencies.
MPO Sheeran has been a police officer with the Vienna Police Department since 2000 and is currently assigned to the Patrol Division. MPO Evans has
also been with the Vienna Police Department since 2000 and is currently assigned to the Fairfax County Criminal Justice Academy as a Recruit Instructor.
