For Immediate Release: June 24, 2022
Middletown, NJ – On June 10, 2022, Chief of Police Craig Weber announced that Deputy Chief John Kaiser had graduated from the Mid-Atlantic Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar (MALEEDS), in Princeton, New Jersey. The 28th session of MALEEDS consisted of 63 men and women from law enforcement agencies throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The program is co-sponsored by Newark (NJ), New York (NY), and Philadelphia (PA) Divisions of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), along with active and retired law enforcement officers.
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. MALEEDS is recognized as one of the premier selective law enforcement leadership training programs in the nation.
MALEEDS President Chuck Davall, Jr. stated, “While we pride ourselves on our high-level educational program, the MALEEDS Executive Board also provides nightly networking opportunities to continue the learning experience outside of the classroom and encourages our attendees to foster relationships that will allow them to better themselves and their agencies.”
Chief of Police R. Craig Weber said, “I would like to commend Deputy Chief Kaiser for being selected to attend the prestigious FBI MALEEDS executive development program, this unique opportunity is only afforded to a select few command level officers with demonstrated records of accomplishment. The FBI MALEEDS is one of the premier training programs of its type, and serves to further enhance the professional qualifications and competencies of law enforcement leaders working in a complex and rapidly changing legal environment.”
MALEEDS, one of 26 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. Upon successful completion of MALEEDS, graduates become members of the FBI- LEEDA organization. FBI-LEEDA provides leadership training to police officers throughout the year and has an annual training conference each spring.
Deputy Chief Kaiser stated, “I am honored to have been chosen to participate in MALEEDS. It is a wonderful opportunity to gain new insights and skills to deal with the challenges facing law enforcement today. Equally important was the chance to create new relationships with our law enforcement partners throughout the northeastern United States."
