Given the current societal climate and the accelerated exodus of officers from the profession, the opportunity for promotion is at an all-time high for female enforcers.

This course is designed to offer expert guidance in every aspect of the promotional process.  Promotional Strategies will focus on preparing your resume and obtaining effective study material, to in-depth insight into the interview process and improving your overall presence during face to face interactions.

In dynamic fashion and with an eye on the goal, Cyndy shares powerful tips, gained from first-hand experience, to give aspiring police leaders the edge they need to effectively prepare for peak performance during every stage of the promotional process.

This powerfully effective course is instructed by retired Deputy Chief Cyndy Velazquez, a graduate of the Northwestern University School of Staff and Command who holds a Master’s Degree in Organizational Behavior and a Bachelor’s Degree in Law Enforcement Administration.
