Penn State Justice and Safety Institute
High-Impact Supervision (HIS)
The transition from being a line officer to a supervisor requires a specific mind and skill set. The Penn State Justice and Safety Institute (JASI) designed the High-Impact Supervision (HIS) program to provide the intensive and interactive training needed in order to better manage contemporary police environments. Specifically, the three-day HIS program will prepare first-line supervisors to meet the challenge of "critical shift" into a supervisory position.
This program addresses concepts that will help to enhance supervisory skills at a time when securing maximum employee productivity and ethics is vital. We must now ensure that our work environment runs smoothly inside and outside of the office, and JASI’s HIS program aims to accomplish this goal. All of our courses are instructed by current practitioners or recently retired executives. Key concepts and topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
