Being in a leadership position at the 911 comm center is a challenging role. One day you’re working the radio with your peers, the next you’re supervising them. Even more challenging is the fact that most persistent problems at the comm center—workplace negativity, absenteeism, and employee retention—are closely connected with a supervisor’s leadership skills. It is rightly said that employees don’t quit their jobs; they quit their supervisors.
Being effective in your role as a supervisor is arguably the most important function in your organization. Supervisors set the tone, influence morale, and model the way for the majority of personnel. In this all-inclusive training, you’ll receive the tools to thrive in your role as a successful leader and gain the power to greatly influence people and the culture of your comm center.

“The 911 Effective Supervision retreat by LED Training was easily the best training experience of my 19-year career in law enforcement. The section on Personal Leadership empowered me with the tools and knowledge I needed to make effective changes in dispatch and within myself. I will seek out and send my employees to ANY class taught by LED Training in the future.”
— Melissa Galan, Communications Supervisor, Bellaire Police Department, Bellaire, TX
“I’ve spent 27 years in some capacity of law enforcement and attended many supervisor training courses, so when I was scheduled for this I thought, “Been there, done that,” and I wasn’t overly enthusiastic. Holy cow was I wrong! I left the retreat with a new outlook on supervision and leadership. This training changed my life and is making me not only a better supervisor but, more importantly, a better person.“
— Mark Yamma, Communications Supervisor, Leander Police Department, Leander, TX
“I can’t say enough about how amazing the 911 Effective Supervision Retreat was and how well it’s tailored to teach us to communicate more efficiently! We were challenged to dig deep into ourselves to find what scares us, how to face it, and how to turn it around to overcome it. This was truly the greatest training experience in all of my career! Thank you to all of our instructors for putting an amazing class together!”
— Deborah Thach, Dispatch Supervisor, Round Rock Police Department, Round Rock, TX
“I have been to three other supervisor conferences and this is by far the best of them. The location of the retreat was an integral part of the learning experience; the ability to bond with the other attendees in an essentially remote location allowed each of us to really discuss the talking points of each session and get immediate feedback regarding the class as well as our shared experiences and agency similarities. The sessions themselves were immediately relevant to what I am experiencing in my agency and the presenters have first-hand knowledge and experience with the challenges that are unique to public safety communications and civilian law enforcement.”
— Jennifer Garner, Telecommunications Coordinator, Pearland Police Department, Pearland, TX
“I’ve been a supervisor for over 15 years, and I strongly recommend all levels of supervisors to attend this training. Joe Serio has put together a first-class team of instructors for the 911 Supervisor retreat that tie in excellent topics that are applicable to supervisors. They created an environment in which we were able to freely express and share ideas, struggles, and solutions.”
— Carlos Eric Montoya, Communications Supervisor, Leander Police Department, Leander, TX
