Lisle Police Sergeant Daniel Taylor has received the Franklin M. Kreml Leadership Award from the Northwestern University Center for Public Safety (formerly The Traffic Institute). The award was established in 1984 by Kreml, the Center’s founder, to “recognize and encourage the high ethical and professional values and dedication to public service upon which the Center for Public Safety was founded.”
Sergeant Taylor was selected for the award by his classmates in the Center for Public Safety’s ten-week School of Police Staff and Command (SPSC), a demanding management program designed to provide police officers with high-quality training while accommodating their time and financial constraints. Through management and supervision, specialized instruction in technical subjects, and presentation of current issues and new techniques in the field, the SPSC program prepares first- and second-level police management personnel for senior-level positions in their agencies.
The Center for Public Safety, located on Northwestern University’s Evanston campus, was established in 1936 to expand the scope of university-level education and training in traffic safety. Since that time, NUCPS has broadened its original objective to include training in police operations and management, and to address urgent issues in criminal justice and law enforcement. Representatives from federal, state and local police agencies, as well as members of foreign agencies, attend the Centers many and varied programs.
NUCPS also services the law enforcement community through its research programs, publications, and on-site technical assistance.
