Tom Stone-LEEDA Award of Excellence

At the recent FBI LEEDA Conference held in Jacksonville Florida the MPTC was awarded The Tom Stone LEEDA Award of Excellence. In 2007, the Executive Board of FBI LEEDA created this award, which was established to recognize a member of the association for outstanding achievement in promoting the science and art of law enforcement management, promoting the exchange of information between police executives, expansion of police leadership training and the growth of the FBI LEEDA organization. The Award is on permanent display at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia.

Since 2007 this award was given to a prominent individual in policing who truly was committed to and demonstrated all the principals taught by the FBI LEEDA instructors. Past recipients include Chief Dean Crisp, Commander Keith Bushey and Frank Woodall from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Education.

This was the first year an organization was given this award.  The MPTC was selected because it institutionalized the FBI LEEDA training and in doing so, is responsible for training over 3000 supervisors, commanders and executives in the past 3 years and has assisted over 400 officers achieve their Trilogy Award. The Trilogy Award is given to those officers who complete all 3 levels of this training, Supervisor, Command and Executive.

Kevin Donnelly, a program coordinator with the MPTC, was instrumental in coordinating the FBI LEEDA programs in Massachusetts on behalf of the MPTC.  Pictured here is Braintree Police Chief Paul Shastany, the outgoing FBI LEEDA President, and former President Chief David Boggs from Broken Arrow (OK) present the Tom Stone-LEEDA Award of Excellence to Kevin Donnelly, who accepted on behalf of the MPTC. The award was presented during the closing ceremonies on May 10, 2017.
