The MPTC recently completed an overhaul of its first-line supervision course for new supervisors.  The previous program was a two-week course, with a focus on the day-to-day responsibilities of being a supervisor.  The new program is a weeklong class and focuses on leadership, with the goal of giving the new supervisors the philosophies and tools needed for creating high-performing teams and getting the most from the officers they supervise.  Nonetheless, despite the high ratings the course is receiving, the MPTC continues to solicit feedback from the attendees as to how to further improve the training and make it useful and useable.  Pictured are the supervisors and instructors from the Randolph session.
