May 21, 2019: The Criminal Justice Commission for Credible Leadership Development (CJC-CLD®) conferred Credible Law Enforcement Organization certification upon the Linn County Sheriff’s Office on May 21, 2019, making it one of only two law enforcement agencies in the nation to receive this recognition.
This agency certification was the culmination of a five-year process in which Sheriff’s Office employees participated in an ethical leadership development training program through the Institute for Credible Leadership Development (ICLD). Many employees went on to receive Certified Credible Leader (CCL) certification through the International Academy of Public Safety, which qualified the agency for Credible Leadership Organization (CLO) certification.
Employees participating in this two-day training and certification process have completed a total of 256 hours of leadership training, read eight leadership textbooks, and successfully passed 45 on-line examinations, verifying their understanding of the concepts and principles of the ICLD training.
