(April 10, 2017) - Three Cape Coral Police sergeants recently graduated from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's Florida Leadership Academy.

The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute, housed within FDLE, announced the graduation of 39 first-line supervisors from 22 criminal justice agencies from the Florida Leadership Academy on April 7th, 2017. The Cape Coral Police Department was represented by Sgt. Angela Fleming, Sgt. David Gleason, and Sgt. Patrick O'Grady.

The graduates met for four week-long sessions at the Southwest Florida Public Service Academy in Fort Myers. They learned skills necessary to support the needs of their agencies and their communities as they prepare for future challenges.

The goal of the Florida Leadership Academy is to prepare first-line supervisors in criminal justice organizations to exemplify the character and integrity expected of criminal justice professionals and to examine the various components necessary to being an efficient leader.

“As the front-line supervisors, the sergeants are critical to this department’s success. We are proud of the work they do, and of Sgt. Fleming, Sgt. Gleason, and Sgt. O”Grady for their commitment to bettering their already excellent leadership skills.”
