Sgt. Ayren Edgar
NOVI, Mich., October 31, 2016 – Novi Police Sgt. Ayren Edgar joined an elite group of law enforcement professionals last week by successfully completing Eastern Michigan University’s School of Police Staff and Command.
Sgt. Edgar, who has been with the Novi Police Department since 2002, worked as a field training officer, use of force instructor and a detective prior to being promoted to sergeant. He was one of 42 law enforcement professionals to graduate from the school and served as the class chaplain.
“The SPSC program was a great opportunity for me to enhance my leadership and problem solving skills,” said Edgar. “I am very proud of my accomplishment and look forward to bringing new information back to the Novi Police Department and sharing it throughout the organization.”
The School of Police Staff and Command is a nine-month program designed for officers interested in advancing into the upper management ranks. Major topics of study include leadership development, planning and decision making, human resource management, administration of the police agency, and critical incidents and homeland security. The program has graduated over 2,000 students since its creation in 1985.
“I am extremely proud of Sergeant Edgar’s professional and leadership accomplishments,” said Novi Director of Public Safety/Chief of Police David E. Molloy. “The Staff and Command program provides students with the education and training needed to strengthen their capabilities with the Novi Police Department, while also enhancing resources to the citizens of Novi. I have every confidence Sergeant Edgar will utilize the skills he learned to enhance our relationships with the community and build public trust.”
