Sr. Systems Analyst Gerald Smith graduated from the West Point Leadership Program today in a ceremony held at the Albemarle County Police Department. The Leadership Course is a 16 week program adapted from the Military Leadership Course that all cadets at the United States Military Academy complete in their third year of study. The training is a rigorous academic study of leadership that teaches the student how to think more systematically about leadership situations.
Coordination of the class was a combined effort of the Albemarle County Police Department, and the Methodist University Center for Excellence in Justice Administration. Gerald is the second ECC employee to complete this leadership class. We currently have a third member of our staff that has just started this same training program.
Kudos to Gerald on all of his hard work and I would ask that you join me in congratulating him for a job done well. This training certainly is in line with our One Organization Committed to Excellence.
The mission of the Emergency Communications Center is to provide quality service to our customers in an expedient and professional manner while respecting the diversity of our community and recognizing that our employees are our most valuable resource.
"The Charlottesville-UVA-Albemarle County Emergency Communications Center will be a recognized leader in Public Safety Communications."
