Dennis officer completes supervisory course

DENNIS – Dennis Chief of Police Peter DiMatteo congratulated Officer Nicholas Patsavos on his completion of the 2-week First Line Supervisor Course at Roger Williams University, Criminal Justice program. Officer Patsavos is slated for promotion later this year to fill a vacancy resulting from a recent retirement. He presently serves as one of the department’s two Community Policing/Crime Prevention Officers.

The First Line Supervisor Course is the first of a series of management development programs that are sponsored as a cooperative initiative between the University and the New England Police Chiefs Association. The two-week program provides the officers with basic training in contemporary, relevant concepts of management and leadership appropriate to the responsibilities of first-line supervisors in a modern criminal justice agency. Attendees examine topics including Myers-Briggs Type Indicator: Leadership and Communication Styles and Transitions, Labor Relations, Conflict Management, Performance Appraisals, Data Analysis, Problem Solving, and Planning, Situational and Crisis Leadership and Followership, Legal and Labor Law for the First Line Supervisor, and Ethical Decision-making. The program is presented by experienced academics and law enforcement practitioners.
