About Us

The National Command and Staff College turbocharges star performance leadership capable of sustained innovations and operational excellence through modern learning experiences that build and promote community safety and mutual trust, maximize officer safety and wellness while reducing Agency and Officer liability and risks. 

I was skeptical about the Command and Staff College. I didn’t know what I was getting into. I soon realized that it embodied an amount of work that I knew I had to push forward to get through. After 27 years in law enforcement I carry a "tool box" with me in my mind that I thought was filled with all the things I needed to lead others. I was mistaken. After attending the Command and Staff College I realized that they have given me a hardware store of tools, information, abilities, and documents I could carry with me for the rest of my life. You need to approach your time in Command College recognizing the fact that your "tool box" may be workable, but its not filled yet. Command College gives you the opportunity to fill the toolbox to become a better leader. I am very thankful to have made it through the course.

Capturing the Moment: Counter-VUCA Leadership for 21st Century Policing

Mutual problem solving is a counter-VUCA strategy …. The expectations citizens have of their police officers have always been high; the expectations officers have of themselves are higher. The needs and wants of the community are in many circumstances overwhelming, even unrealistic. Simply put, public institutions cannot realistically provide expected and needed services without collective

Power of Influence

John Maxwell, states that Leadership is Influence, nothing more nothing less.  We all influence others, sometimes being a positive influence, sometimes being a negative influence.  We must be intentional about how we influence others.  If we aren’t intentional about how we lead, our influence may not be positive. Remember the classic movie, White Christmas?  Can
