Congratulation to Sergeant Michael Arias, who graduated from the prestigious Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute (SBSLI) this week after completing the intensive 8-month course in Del Mar, California. He joins many other Irwindale Police Department leaders who have graduated from this highly respected program.
Chief Rob Castro and Lieutenant Jose Vargas joined Sergeant Arias' family at today's ceremony for the presentation of his graduation certificate.
The SBSLI is a professional development program designed to stimulate personal growth, leadership, and ethical decision-making in California law enforcement front-line supervisors.
As part of this program, Sergeant Arias attended 3-day sessions each month over an 8-month period, where he received reading, study and research assignments for each class session.
SBSLI is a comprehensive and intensive program that demands a good deal of time and effort and we congratulate Sergeant Arias on his achievement.
