NOPD Superintendent Invited to Executive Leadership Summit at  Harvard University

NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison has been selected to participate in an Executive Leadership Group (ELG) which will lead a three-day public safety summit at Harvard University.

The Harvard Public Safety Summit is an annual, invitation-only event designed to share strategies for utilizing technology, and to share leadership insights on improving departmental philosophy.

Chief Harrison was invited by the Harvard University faculty to assist and become a member of the ELG, which is a small group of handpicked officials identified as key leaders in public safety and policing throughout the nation.

The summit - which attracts national and international law enforcement personnel - invites roughly 50 chiefs, sheriffs and commissioners throughout the country to interact and learn from members of the ELG. 

The ELG will be responsible for sharing their thoughts, ideas and opportunities in public safety all while helping with identifying cases and topics that should be included during the event.

As a part of the ELG, Harrison will be teaching alongside police chiefs from Washington D.C. and Houston, as well as with crime strategists from the New York Police Department.

The three-day summit will be held in April of 2018 at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
