NOPD Deputy Chief Completes National Leadership, Mentorship Program
NEW ORLEANS – In an effort to better serve the community, the NOPD encourages continuing education and training for its ranks, including its senior leadership, City reps said.
As part of that training, Deputy Chief Paul Noel recently attended and graduated from the Major Cities Chiefs Association’s (MCCA) fourth Police Executive Leadership Institute (PELI).
The purpose of the institute is to develop current and future law enforcement leaders and to ready them for the transition to the top position. The program consists of five components including two classroom sessions, a 360-Degree Assessment and mentor shadowing.
“This program is not just a great program for us as the NOPD, but it’s a chance for us to show that our police department is growing and learning and doing what we can to make this department better for the citizens of New Orleans,” said Noel, who heads the department’s Field Operations Bureau.
