Los Angeles Fire Department Leadership Academy: Keeping Our Kids and Our Communities Safe From Predators
This week host, Opal Singleton, will be interviewing Captain Craig Poulson, Director of the Los Angeles Fire Department Leadership Academy.
Often fire department personnel are the first on a crime scene. It is critical they are trained to identify crimes of human exploitation. Million Kids serves as the Human Trafficking Instructor for the LAFD Leadership Academy and provides training on sex and labor trafficking, sextortion, social media exploitation and combating child pornography.
The LAFD Leadership Academy is the premier leadership training academy in the nation for developing leadership skills for first responders, community, and civic leaders. The Leadership Academy accepts students from across the nation (and internationally) and is an intensive graduate level course. The foundation for the Leadership program was developed at the United States Military Academy at West Point and was adapted to the leadership concerns of the fire service today.
Captain Poulson is an exemplary role model and administrator for the academy. In this interview he shares some of the aspects of leadership skills required for first responders. He is engaging and informative. You are sure to enjoy this show!
