The Hollister Police Department is proud to share the news of the graduation of Sergeant Rosie Betanio from the Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute (SBSLI).
The Sherman Block Supervisory Leadership Institute (SBSLI) is a program designed to stimulate personal growth, leadership, and ethical decision-making in California law enforcement front-line supervisors. Designed and implemented in 1988 through the efforts of California law enforcement professionals and top educators and trainers, the SBSLI is an intense program based on experiential learning techniques.
Students are challenged to learn new ways to resolve issues through group and individual work. The curriculum takes students through an analysis of management, planning, organizing, directing, etc. & leadership (inspiring, challenging, developing, etc.) & how each discipline compliments the other. The course progresses from self-evaluation, to interpersonal evaluation, to organizational relationships. *
On January 19, 2018, Sergeant Betanio received her certificate along with her class at a ceremony in Pleasanton, CA. The Hollister Police Department is extremely proud to have Sgt. Betanio added to the list of SLI graduates serving our community.
