The City of Wauchula congratulates Chief John Eason for his recent graduation from the Chief Executive Seminar offered by the Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute. Chief Eason was one of 17 senior executives who graduated from the 48th Chief Executive Seminar on November 19, 2014 in Tallahassee, Fla. The graduates, who represent criminal justice agencies from around the state, serve in leadership roles within their agencies.
Participants met for one week a month for three months, taking classes on topics such as future trends, managing generations, Florida economics, risk management, succession planning and implementing strategic change.
The goal of the Chief Executive Seminar is to prepare Florida’s criminal justice leadership for the challenging demands of the future. Class participants study trends and events that may affect criminal justice professionals and Florida, while developing new leadership skills to address the changes that lie ahead.
The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute, established within the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and affiliated with the state university system, was established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature in recognition of the need for an innovative and multifaceted approach to the education and training of criminal justice professionals.
