Joliet Police Chief Brian Benton announced the graduation of Joliet Police Lt. Kevin Labolle and Sgts. Arthur Vandergrift, Kenneth Brown and Christopher Botzum from the Northwestern University’s Center for Public Safety School of Police Staff and Command.

This 10-week course is designed to prepare top and mid-level law enforcement managers and supervisors for senior agency positions. The officers graduated from the course on May 11.

The guest speaker for the ceremony was the recently appointed U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, John Lausch, a Joliet native.

The School of Police Staff and Command covers six broad areas of study: Management and Management Theory, Organizational Behavior, Human Resources for Law Enforcement, Budgeting, Staffing Allocation and Personnel Deployment.

More than 10,000 officers both nationally and internationally have graduated from the program since its first session was held in 1983.
