**PRESS RELEASE** 10/02/2018 LT. MIKE EPPLER GRADUATES FROM LEADERSHIP COMMAND COLLEGE ---------------------------------- Michael B. Eppler, Lieutenant of the Denison Police Department, recently graduated from the Leadership Command College – Class 82 of the Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas. The program, taught by a consortium of universities throughout Texas, provides law enforcement administrators and executives with the skills necessary to effectively manage police agencies and deliver a high level of service to their communities. Module I, focusing on leadership, is taught at the Center for Executive Development at Texas A&M University. Module II at Texas Woman’s University focuses on the political, legal, and social environment of law enforcement. The program concluded on September 28, 2018, with training in law enforcement administration at the third module, held at Sam Houston State University. Each of the three 3-week modules attended by participants in the program is taught by top national and international law enforcement experts. Topics include leadership, professional ethics and integrity, communication, and personnel management issues. The Command College curriculum also strives to keep participants on top of contemporary issues in Criminal Justice. This program is one of many offered by the Bill Blackwood Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas, headquartered on the campus of Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. The Institute, known as “LEMIT,” has been training law enforcement managers and executives since its inception in 1987. LEMIT offers numerous seminars, training for police chiefs, and the leadership program, which is one of the premier law enforcement academies in the nation. No tax monies are necessary to support LEMIT, which is funded by a surcharge on criminal court costs; affording eligible Texas Law Enforcement managers and executives essential professional development. Between one and two thousand Texas law enforcement personnel benefit from LEMIT training each year.

Lt. Eppler rocks!

It's been an exciting day at Denison PD! Today we had five new recruits sworn in as Denison police officers. Joshua Bogue, Jacob Shoemate, Linda Herrera, Haley Keifer, and Austin Ratcliff all graduated yesterday from the North Central Texas Regional Police Academy in Arlington. They all did outstanding in the academy, with Linda Herrera being ranked #1 in the class (way to go, Linda!) We are very pleased to have them on board with us, and we hope you'll join us in welcoming them to our community. #DenisonProud

We recently held our first meeting of UNIDOS, our new Hispanic outreach program. The meeting was held at Nuevo Creacion church, and it was a great success! We had approximately 60 people in attendance. Officer Albarenga gave a presentation, and he and Officer Molina answered questions and interacted with the community. We're very excited about the turnout, and about the community interest we have had in this program so far. Stay tuned for another meeting coming soon!
