Congratulations to the Titusville Police Department for being awarded the Tom Stone LEEDA Award of Excellence, accepted by Training Coordinator, Christina Schmidt, at the recent Federal Bureau of Investigation Law Enforcement Executive Development Association (FBI-LEEDA) Conference held in Phoenix, Arizona.
Christina Schmidt accepted this honor on behalf of the department, which recognizes outstanding achievement in promoting the science and art of law enforcement management, promoting the exchange of information between police executives, expansion of police leadership training and the growth of the FBI-LEEDA organization, because of her dedication and above and beyond work ethic during her more than 5 years in this role.
Titusville began hosting FBI-LEEDA classes in 2011 and has hosted over 500 students. Christina Schmidt coordinates these training events, injecting hundreds of thousands of dollars into the local economy and affording state-of-the-art cost-free training to sworn and non-sworn staff at the department, providing the city a cost savings of approximately $30,000 per year.
