The First Line Supervisor is one of the most important positions in any Police Department. In the absence of a formal supervisor, many Police Departments throughout the Country utilize the Senior Officer on shift as the “Officer in Charge”. The OIC is responsible for directing personnel and providing supervisory oversight for their shift. They also serve as a critical communication link between the upper command staff and patrol officer. Through lecture, demonstration and class interaction, this course will assist the OIC as they develop in their roles and responsibilities as shift supervisor.
