The Municipal Police Training Committee conducted a five day Front-Line Leadership program November 16 – 20, 2020 at the Southbridge Hotel and Conference Center. This professional site is suitable in that it offers the ability to utilize a 300-person auditorium to properly social distance. Pictured below are the MPTC Interim Executive Director, Chief Robert J. Ferullo, Jr., (retired Woburn PD), instructors Chief Richard G. Wells, Jr. (retired Milton PD) and Lt. Fred T. Leland, Jr. (retired Walpole PD). In addition, are the 23 full-time police supervisor attendees from eight police departments across the Commonwealth: Brockton, Charlton, Massachusetts Environmental Police, Monson, South Hadley, Springfield, Winthrop and Boston Medical Center Public Safety. This training consisted of leadership theory and also developed sense-making, problem solving, adaptability, metacognition and attention control.  This combined methodology taught these new supervisors how to lead effectively.
