The Police Leadership Program (PLP) is a collaboration between the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP) and the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management.
This unique, three-week intensive experience focuses on the key facets of leadership and provides participants with the opportunity to challenge themselves in a dynamic learning environment. The program is facilitated by Rotman faculty who are at the forefront of thought leadership and practice. In addition, participants are exposed to prominent guest speakers from law enforcement and the corporate world. The program is anchored around relevant content and activities such as the in-class projects which are designed to address real time policing issues. The program also features many opportunities for networking, engagement with faculty and other experts in the field of policing.
The PLP is designed and delivered to strengthen and promote effective leadership practice of senior police officers. The competencies addressed by the program ensure that participants are equipped with the necessary skills and tools to think differently, make better decisions, be better negotiators, communicate more effectively, act with integrity and political astuteness, understand the implications of financial decisions, manage and lead change and contribute to the overall health of the organization. The program is delivered using appropriate adult learning strategies, such as peer-based learning, simulations, role-playing, team assignments, project-based learning and in-class instruction and is constantly reviewed and refreshed through input from the PLP Steering Committee made up of faculty, members of the OACP and several Chiefs of Police.
