On February 11, 2010 Officer Kollin Cieadlo graduated from Class # 9 of the Deputy Leadership Institute (DLI), which was held at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Headquarters in Monterey Park. This event served to reinforce the Department's commitment to the development of its members, by offering what has come to be described as a groundbreaking leadership development program which will set the standard for other law enforcement agencies.
DLI is a six-month program of intense study on leadership philosophy and is attended by police officers and sheriff’s deputies from Los Angeles, Orange, and San Bernardino counties. DLI develops personal leadership by drawing on fundamental values that have existed for centuries: common sense, compassion, courage, decisiveness, ethical behavior, innovation, integrity, positive attitude, respect, self-assurance, sound judgment, and trustworthiness.
