Henderson, Nev. – Two Henderson Police captains graduated Friday from Northwestern University’s School of Police Staff and Command, an intensive program for law enforcement managers.
Captain Marc Cassell and Captain Dane Mattoon completed the 10-week program held locally. Northwestern University launched the program in 1983 to help prepare law enforcement managers for senior command positions by combining academics with practical applications.
“I am very proud of the hard work of Captain Cassell and Captain Mattoon. I know firsthand the benefit of Northwestern University’s School of Police Staff and Command,” said Henderson Police Chief Patrick Moers, who graduated from the program in 2005. “We at the Henderson Police Department are committed to professional and educational development not just for the command staff, but for all employees.”
In keeping with that emphasis on education, earlier this year Chief Moers implemented a new educational requirement for new promotions.
The major topics of study at the School of Police Staff and Command included management and management theory, organizational behavior, human resources for law enforcement, budgeting, staffing allocation and personnel deployment.
The School of Police Staff and Command had 35 students from a variety of local and nearby law enforcement agencies. The school is considered one of the best for executive development in law enforcement.
