The purpose of the Public Safety Cadets National Leadership Academy (NLA) is to bring Cadets together from throughout the country for emersion in dynamic team building and leadership instruction during a week-long, live-in experience. Cadets will benefit from presentations provided by prominent law enforcement, public safety and academic leaders that emphasize servant leadership. Lessons taught throughout the week will provide historic reference to leadership and failures of leadership in law enforcement.

The NLA serves as a unique opportunity to prepare the next generation of law enforcement officers to lead people, build coalitions and be results driven through interactive workshops, dynamic lectures, and physical fitness activities.  During field trips around the National Capital Region, Cadets will examine challenges of leadership associated with the democratic freedoms public safety officers are sworn to uphold and protect.

This premier event is hosted by the Fairfax County Police Department in association with the George Mason University Police Department and Center of Evidence Based Crime Policy.   Cadets are invited to participate in this premier event that will provide discussions and dynamic activities to better understand the roles and challenges facing public safety leaders and our communities today.
