is the Deputy Leadership Institute?
Deputy Leadership Institute (DLI) is a ground breaking leadership
development program that will set the standard for all law enforcement
agencies. It was founded on the principle that leadership is intrinsic
in the professional law enforcement officer and can be developed
in each of us. DLI is designed to enhance our ability to be leaders
in the communities we are entrusted to protect. DLI will help each
of us recognize our leadership responsibilities and enhance our
leadership skills, both personally and professionally. All employees
of the Sheriff's Department will have the opportunity to benefit
from the DLI experience."
