The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute announces the graduation of 19 senior managers from the Chief Executive Seminar. The graduates represent criminal justice agencies from throughout Florida who serve in a leadership role. The graduation was held Wednesday, April 10 in Tallahassee, Fla.

Wakulla County Sheriff Charlie Creel and Undersheriff Trey Morrison were two of the graduates.

The goal of the Chief Executive Seminar is to prepare Florida’s criminal justice leadership for the challenging and changing demands of the future. Class participants study trends and events that may affect our state and develop new leadership skills to address and manage those changes.

The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute, established within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and affiliated with the State University System, was established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature who recognized the need for an innovative and multifaceted approach to the education and training of criminal justice professionals.
