On April 19, Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) Corrections Division Sgt. Jenna DuBose graduated from Class 56 of the Florida Leadership Academy, which the Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute hosted. Sheriff Kurt A. Hoffman made the announcement about DuBose’s accomplishment.

“DuBose and 43 other first-line supervisors attended four week-long sessions,” during which “the Florida Leadership Academy prepared them for future challenges and taught them the skills necessary to support the needs of their local agencies and communities,” a news release points out. “This exceptional training is designed to develop the character and integrity required for criminal justice professionals by building on the characteristics of efficient and effective leaders,” the release explains.

“Thirty-seven criminal justice agencies were represented in this class,” the release notes.

“With each graduating class, the Florida Leadership Academy reinforces the traits needed to prepare supervisors to lead and serve in their communities,” said Sheriff Hoffman in the release. “Training is the foundation of every successful law enforcement agency, and at SCSO, it is always a priority.”
