The Mid-Atlantic Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar (MALEEDS) hosts its annual training conference at Princeton University each year since 1993. This unique educational opportunity is designed to provide leadership training for police chiefs and law enforcement executives who lead agencies with 75 sworn police officers or fewer.
MALEEDS, one of twenty-one FBI-LEEDA Regional Command Colleges, is a highly successful and selective program that provides insight into some of the many challenges facing today’s police executives. Class size is limited in order to maximize the interaction between instructors and attendees during this comprehensive training program. The selection process draws applicants from New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
This energetic and sophisticated educational program is proudly co-sponsored by the Newark, New York, and Philadelphia Divisions of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), along with active and retired law enforcement officers from the former Princeton Borough and the Princeton Township Police Departments, the Princeton University Department of Public Safety, and the River Vale Police Department.
MALEEDS takes place each year in June. Application information is made available to the chief law enforcement officer of each qualifying agency and the online application is posted to the MALEEDS website in January for a fixed period of time. The MALEEDS Board of Directors meets each Spring in order to review applications, determine eligibility, and select participants for this highly competitive program.
