Franklin Police Officers Complete Advanced Training

Sergeant William Brigham, evening patrol division shift supervisor, recently completed an intensive two week first line supervisor training at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. The First Line Supervisor Course provided sworn public safety professionals with contemporary, relevant concepts of leadership and management appropriate to the role responsibilities of first line supervisors in a modern criminal justice agency.

Sergeant Brigham examined topics including: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator; Leadership Principles; Interpersonal Communication; Discipline, Conflict Management and Performance Appraisals; Problem Solving and Community Engagement; Situational & Crisis Applied Leadership; Legal Updates and Liability; and Fair and Impartial Policing for Supervisors. The program was presented by experienced academics and law enforcement practitioners.

Patrol Officers David Gove, and Conor Ashe recently completed the eighty (80) hour Police Motorcycle Officer Training Course at the South Weymouth Naval Air Station. This course was presented by instructors from Northwestern University, and taught officers in the tactics and skills needed for emergency and patrol police motorcycle operators. 

This course is a grueling test of the operator’s abilities, and teaches evasive maneuvering, high speed braking, escape, and avoidance exercises. Both officers will now be out on patrol on the two motorcycles in the Franklin Police Department’s fleet.
