LT Travis Cole graduates FBI-LEEDA Executive Leadership program
Patrol Lt Travis Cole received his TRILOGY certificate after graduating from the 336th Executive Leadership academy FBI-LEEDA. Lt Cole began taking the leadership training in July and completed all three levels of training to receive his TROLOGY award. The three levels of certification included Supervisor Leadership, Command Leadership and Executive Leadership training. The week-long classes were spread out over a six-month period to allow working members of law enforcement in supervisor capacities to attend without being gone for a long period of time. Lt Cole said "I want to thank Sheriff Mosher and the FBI-LEEDA program for allowing me the opportunity to attend this training. The training I received is very valuable and a priceless tool that all law enforcement leaders should have."
Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher presented Lt Cole with his TRILOGY award on Wednesday and said this marked the beginning of a goal he has had for some time. "I think every member of law enforcement that is in an upper-level management position should have this training. It not only teaches good leadership skills and values, but it takes a good look at the administrative side of law enforcement, the community relations aspect, and the policy and procedure process for agencies." Mosher said a large portion of LT Cole's class was paid for on a grant he submitted last summer and that he hopes to continue sending his administrative staff to this training. "I will definitely be applying for grants again this year and sending more of our staff to this training."
