Public Safety Leadership Institute  
Public Safety Leadership Institute (PSLI)
A Unique Leadership Program for Public Safety Executives
In the new millennium, public safety professionals will be faced with scarce resources, political and public pressures, personnel issues, a rapidly changing environment, and an unpredictable future.  Being able to establish a vision, create a value system, open lines of communication, and foster collaboration and cooperation are essential characteristics of the next generation Public Safety Executives.
The Public Safety Leadership Institute (PSLI) at Mercer University is specifically designed to examine current leadership models and practices, and to create an awareness of the knowledge, skills and attributes of a successful leader in the public and safety environment.
The Audience
The PSLI is specifically designed for public safety leaders, as well as individuals who desire to advance to leadership positions in municipal, county, state, and federal agencies representing law enforcement, fire departments, emergency management, emergency medical services, emergency communications, corrections, juvenile justice, parole, probation, court systems including investigative units, and enforcement/security units within state and federal agencies.
