The National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Agencies (NOBLE) is developing a pilot program titled, “Mentoring Potential Chief Executive Officers” (CEO’s). The mentoring program will have three major components:

  1. The first will be classroom instruction on the knowledge, skills, and abilities areas required for a Law Enforcement Chief Executive Officer.
  2. The second will involve mentoring by experienced CEO’s on personal characteristics that lead to job success.
  3. The third will involve mentoring on the progression of steps; from the career development plan to getting hired as a CEO and concluding with succession planning and your exit strategy.

If you are a NOBLE member that aspires to become a Chief Executive Officer, NOBLE has designed a program specifically for you. If you have been working hard to prepare yourself for the ultimate career challenge of overseeing a Law Enforcement Agency, we want to help you.

It is difficult to be successful in a Chief Executive Officer selection process. It is even more difficult to successfully manage a Law Enforcement Agency. It is also important to know when and how to implement your succession plan.

NOBLE is seeking outstanding candidates, who have been preparing themselves for a career to be a CEO and who want the benefit of mentoring and coaching.

The Master-Apprentice method is the oldest training method in the world and is still the best. A master can increase your skills and performance.
