Welcome

The MALEEDS Board of Directors is currently monitoring the ongoing health concerns and shutdowns related to COVID-19.  We are in discussions with our venue, speakers, and LEEDA regarding the possibility of hosting a MALEEDS program this year.    

While our goal is to avail you of this valuable training, the safety and well-being of attendees and staff is of the utmost importance.  

When a decision is reached, we will post the relevant information to our website.  In the meantime, stay healthy and stay safe.

The Mid-Atlantic Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar (MALEEDS) hosts its annual training conference at Princeton University each year since 1993.  This unique educational opportunity is designed to provide leadership training for police chiefs and law enforcement executives who lead agencies with 75 sworn police officers or fewer.

MALEEDS, one of twenty-one FBI LEEDS regional command colleges, is a highly successful and selective program that provides insight into some of the many challenges facing today’s police executives.  Class size is limited in order to maximize the interaction between instructors and attendees during this comprehensive training program.  The selection process draws applicants from New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

This energetic and sophisticated educational program is proudly co-sponsored by the Newark, New York, and Philadelphia Divisions of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), along with active and retired law enforcement officers from the former Princeton Borough and the Princeton Township Police Departments, the Princeton University Department of Public Safety, and the River Vale Police Department.

MALEEDS takes place every year in June.  Applications are made available in January to the chief law enforcement officer of each qualifying agency.  The MALEEDS Executive Board meets each spring in order to review applications and select participants for the program.
