By: Thaddeus Stephanak

Two Burlington Police Officers recently completed a rigorous Senior Management program.


Chief Michael Kent said he is pleased to report that Lt. Timothy McDonough and Lt. Daniel Hanafin completed the program for Senior Management Institute for Police (SMIP).


“The Senior Management Institute for Police is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for our command officers to sharpen their skills in a variety of key areas, I’m glad that Lt. McDonough and Lt. Hanafin were able to participate.” Kent stated. “Completing the program will make them both better leaders within our department, and I’m proud of them for taking on this challenge and completing it successfully.”


Law enforcement leaders from around the world participated in SMIP, a program of Police Executive Research, an independent research organization that focuses on critical issues in policing. 


Taking place during the course of one week at the Boston University campus, the program provides senior police executives with intensive training in the latest management concepts and practices used in business and government. Participants also discuss the crucial issues facing law enforcement including diversity, political management and media relations.


The experience also exposed Lts. McDonough and Hanafin to a more global perspective to policing general management theory, policy development, planning processes and organizational techniques.
