Abstract In an effort to examine the many issues of concern and current trends in community policing leadership, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, through its Leadership Academy, conducted two national leadership roundtables for the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (the COPS Office) during 2009 and 2010. Leadership for Public Safety I was held in 2009, while Leadership for Public Safety II was conducted in 2010.These leadership roundtables discussed the importance of enhancing public safety training and learning from the private sector business model to incorporate new strategies and approaches into policing. The COPS Office understands the importance of conducting national roundtables on leadership sustainability. As the economy changes, law enforcement needs to build leadership skills by learning from the business sector model--a crucial adjustment to the business of policing. Propagating cultural change internally and externally among agencies, initiating collaborative engagements with the community, and enhancing overall public safety are all sustainability goals, ensuring that the business of policing continues to be effective during economic change.
