Tallahassee Community College Chief of Police Wesley S. Hardin graduates from the 55th Chief Executive Seminar through the Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute. Chief Hardin is one of 19 chief executives from criminal justice agencies around Florida to graduate from the program. Participants met for one week a month for three months, taking classes on topics such as future trends, social media, risk management, stress management, succession planning, and communicating in a crisis.
The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute, established within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and affiliated with the state university system, was established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature in recognition of the need for an innovative and multifaceted approach to the education and training of criminal justice professionals. The goal of the Chief Executive Seminar is to prepare Florida’s criminal justice leadership for the challenging demands of the future. Class participants study trends and events that may affect criminal justice professionals and Florida, while developing new leadership skills to address the changes that lie ahead.
