XENIA — Xenia police sergeant Chris Stutes recently graduated from the Public Safety Leadership Academy held by The Ohio State University — John Glenn College of Public Affairs.
The academy is an intensive and innovative 11-week course with content in the areas of leadership and ethics; interpersonal and organizational communication; public management; organizational culture and ethics; human resources management; and budgeting and organizational behavior in policing. Col. Paul Pride, superintendent of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, said the academy training opportunity is a “training experience unlike anything offered in the nation”.
