Clausen chosen to attend national law enforcement leadership training

CLEARLAKE, Calif. – Clearlake’s new police chief was selected to attend a national training on leadership and management for rural law enforcement.

Craig Clausen – who the Clearlake City Council decided last week to appoint to the Clearlake Police chief’s job on a permanent basis – was among 30 law enforcement executives from across the United States chosen to participate in the ninth annual “Leading by Legacy” training, hosted by the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

The association reported that the training’s goal was to enhance the leadership and management skill set of each participant and provide strategies to promote leadership development within their own agency.

Such strategies lead to agency stability and delivery of quality services to the community each participant services, the association said.

During the two and a half day training – which took place over the weekend and concluded Monday in Phoenix, Ariz. – Clausen and the other selected participants explored leadership and management issues on motivation, managing change, succession planning and engaging the community, among other topics.

The training also considered accountability and included an exchange of ideas regarding current law enforcement leadership challenges and concerns.

Clausen and his fellow participants in the training engaged in developing action plans in order to adopt new strategies for proactive implementation of leadership strategies when they return to their departments.

Expenses for participants to attend the Leading by Legacy training were covered under a grant to the International Association of Chiefs of Police from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act through the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice.
