The Johnston Police Department is pleased to recognize a recent graduate from the 490th School of Police Staff and Command program at Northwestern University’s Center for Public Safety. Lieutenant Jensen recently completed this academically intensive, 10-week training course.
“I am proud to have Lt. Jensen as part of the leadership team here at the Johnston Police Department,” said Police Chief Dennis McDaniel. “This type of command-level training is crucial for building strong police leaders in the 21st century. Lt. Jensen will continue to strive for excellence as the police department’s Administrative Services Division Commander. She has proven to be a leader not only here at the department, but also during her training, serving as the class vice president. Our department and community will benefit from Lt.

During the program’s curriculum, each student is academically challenged through written examinations, projects, presentations and quizzes, in addition to a staff study paper. The major topics of study include leadership, human resources, employee relations, organizational behavior, applied statistics, planning and policy development, budgeting and resource allocation.
