Public Safety hosts law enforcement conference

Princeton University is hosting and co-sponsoring the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Mid-Atlantic Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar (LEEDS), which began on Monday and concludes on Friday, June 13.

The professional development program provides law enforcement executives with courses in leadership, strategic planning, legal issues, labor relations, social issues and other police programs. The seminar, led by FBI experts, included a presentation by Marvin Bressler, Princeton University professor emeritus of sociology, who spoke on law enforcement in a changing society.

Princeton University Director of Public Safety Steven Healy welcomed approximately 65 police executives gathered at Nassau Hall for the kick-off of the seminar on Monday.

"At first glance, one may not see the obvious connections between an 11-year law enforcement program and a 256-year-old University," Healy said. "I believe that the most significant connection is the desire of the founders of both institutions to provide future leaders with the training they needed to fulfill their responsibilities."
