Deliberate Mission Planning for Law Enforcement Supervisors
Course Description: In this course, officers receive an overview of the Army’s “Deliberate Mission Planning Process” which is a tool for managing time when officers have more than 48 hours to plan a challenging mission like a high-risk arrest or large event. The course also provides a tool for managing information called the Operations Order. Officers then work through each step of this deliberate planning process to eventually reach a decision about how they will plan the mission. This mission is planned at lunch, and a students will fill out a portion of the Operations Order to brief the class their mission after lunch. The class concludes with a written final exam and then an after-action review of the course.
