Two SPD Lieutenants Graduate Missouri Police Chiefs’ Command College
Springfield, Mo. – Two Springfield Police Department commanders were honored today as part of the Missouri Police Chiefs Charitable Foundation (MPCCF) Command College. Lieutenant Dustin Martin and Lieutenant Bryan Welch graduated after completing the seven-month program.
The MPCCF aims to provide valuable training for current and future law enforcement supervisors, commanders, chiefs, and sheriffs. The training program is designed to not only provide command-level training, but also the opportunity for Command College students to earn a master’s degree through Lincoln University. Both Martin and Welch plan to continue their education and pursue a master’s degree in Criminal Justice Administration.
“Continuing education for department staff, officers, and commanders is a cornerstone of effectively serving our community,” Police Chief Paul Williams said. “I am proud to have Lt. Martin and Lt. Welch join the more than 20 previous Command College graduates from the Springfield Police Department.”
