Leadership Development Institute

Today's public safety leaders face a formidable challenge. Ensuring the safety of our communities, in ways that are consistent with the United States Constitution and supported by the public, is no easy task. Our leaders in law enforcement and corrections face challenges that include complex issues, conflicting demands from the community, changes in technology, increasing diversity in our communities, generational differences in the workforce, limited resources, the attention of social media and other factors that increase the difficulty of the job. Our leaders must face these challenges and lead their agencies, personnel and communities in ways that not only provide safety and security, but do so in a manner that engenders public support.

The Leadership Development Institute is committed to helping develop public safety leaders who meet these challenges. As our name connotes, we view the work of developing leaders as a process that starts at the beginning of a career.While many of our programs are targeted at supervisors, we recognize that leadership can and should be developed and exhibited by all personnel, regardless of position or title.

We work closely with public safety leaders from throughout the state, across all disciplines of public safety, to ensure that we are addressing current leadership needs in the field. We also work with academic institutions and professional organizations such as the Maryland Correctional Administrators Association, the Maryland Sheriffs Association and the Maryland Chiefs of Police Association to produce programs for our students.

Library/Research Facilities
LDI is responsible for maintaining the library at the Public Safety Education and Training Center (PSETC). Public safety employees have access to the books, magazines, DVDs, reports, and reference works contained within the library collection. The librarian is available to help users locate appropriate materials they may need to answer their questions or for their research, and users may also request literature searches for materials that will supplement the resources that are physically located in the library.

Those training at the PSETC may visit the library between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. for assistance. Users across the state may call the library (410 875 3544) and request assistance from the librarian.

Traffic Safety Specialist Recognition Program

The Maryland Traffic Safety Specialist (TSS) program is a statewide recognition program for police officers who have attained distinctive levels of experience, training and proficiency in Highway Safety and Traffic Enforcement methods and procedures. This program is now being administered by the Maryland Highway Safety Office.
