Bellmawr Police Department’s Captain Scott Parker graduated from the Mid-Atlantic Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar (MALEEDS) on June 16, 2017, in Princeton, New Jersey.
The 25th session of MALEEDS consisted of 60 men and women from law enforcement agencies in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
MALEEDS hosts its annual training conference at Princeton University each year since 1993. This unique educational opportunity is designed to provide leadership training for police chiefs and law enforcement executives.
MALEEDS is recognized as one of the premier selective law enforcement leadership training programs in the nation.
“While we pride ourselves on our high level educational program, the MALEEDS Executive Board also provides nightly networking opportunities to continue the learning experience outside of the classroom and encourages our attendees to foster relationships that will allow them to better themselves and their agencies,” said MALEEDS President Chuck Davall, Jr.
MALEEDS, one of 26 FBI LEEDS regional command colleges, is a highly successful and selective program that provides insight into some of the many challenges facing today’s police executives. Participation is by invitation only and is awarded through an exceptionally competitive application process. Class size is limited in order to maximize the interaction between instructors and attendees during this comprehensive training program.
This energetic and sophisticated educational program is proudly cosponsored by the Newark, New York, and Philadelphia Divisions of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), along with active and retired law enforcement officers from the former Princeton Borough (NJ) and the Princeton Township (NJ) Police Departments, the Princeton University (NJ) Department of Public Safety, and the River Vale (NJ) Police Department.
Upon successfully completing MALEEDS, graduates become part of the larger FBI-Law Enforcement Executive Development Association (FBI-LEEDA) organization. FBI-LEEDA provides leadership training to police officers throughout the year and has an annual training conference each spring.
“We are extremely pleased with the success and development of Mid-Atlantic LEEDS and we will strive to continue to bring the best executive level training and networking to law enforcement executives from the tri-state area,” said John DeVoe, a Detective Sergeant with the River Vale Police Department who is a member of the MALEEDS Executive Board.
