When leaders succeed, the DPD succeeds. DPD’s Leadership Certificate will provide you with the tools to improve your skills and motivating, inspiring, and organizing those around you.
The Detroit Police Department is the cornerstone of the City of Detroit. Chief White will invite selected members of DPD to participate in leadership training to enhance their skills and build career pathways for the future. DPD has partnered with Cleary University to develop two leadership certificates for Senior and
Emerging Leaders in two separate cohorts supervised by Dr. Regina Banks-Hall. Training will take place at DPSH and will meet twice a week for six weeks, from 5-7pm. Unlike traditional training, these sessions will combine relevant leadership topics with guest speakers, simulations, active learning techniques, and a capstone project with real-world relevance tailored to the demands of the DPD. This certificate also includes an innovative leadership coaching and mentoring component.
DPD’s Leadership Certificate pairs a Senior Leader with an Emerging Leader to foster the mentor/mentee relationship even after the program is completed. Senior and Emerging Leaders each have separate classes but time is allocated to facilitate the coaching relationship with a structured mentor program.
Dr. Regina Banks-Hall, SHRM-CP, is Cleary University’s Dean of Graduate & Professional Studies and Professor of Business. She holds a BA in Business Management and an MBA with a concentration in Human Resource Management from Baker College. Dr. Banks-Hall earned her Doctorate in Business Administration, with a concentration in Leadership, from Walden University.
