SHOUT OUT: A continuing education course for police supervisors is being offered at Fairleigh Dickinson University, thanks to the Bergen County Police Chiefs Association.
“The consensus of chiefs was that a training course was needed for the mid-level supervisor,” said Wood-Ridge Police Chief Joseph T. Rutigliano, chairman of the chiefs’ association Education and Training Committee.
“The course needed to be more specific to the county then what is offered now by private organizations,” he said.
With the help of Executive Associate Dean Ronald E. Calissi, the Supervision of Law Enforcement Personnel program was created at FDU’s Anthony J. Petrocelli College of Continuing Studies “to enhance the skills of the law enforcement/public safety supervisors to effectively, ethically and competently manage their personnel,” Rutigliano said.
The university is offering three college undergraduate or graduate credits upon completion of the course and a Capstone project.
Bergen County Prosecutor, John Molinelli is underwriting half of the tuition for the two-level course with forfeiture funds.

The chiefs association “will remain at the forefront of law enforcement throughout the county,” Rutigliano said. “There is a wealth of talent within the rank of chief who know best how to serve the community.”
