City Times Staff
Portage Co. Sheriff Michael J. Lukas recently completed participation in the 108th session of the National Sheriffs’ Institute (NSI) held in Aurora, Colorado, August 31-September 4, 2015.
The NSI is the only national executive development program designed for sheriffs. The no-cost program is co-sponsored by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) and the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA).
Lukas was one of 26 other sheriffs from across the country for training on contemporary challenges facing America’s sheriffs today. In light of those challenges, the sheriffs explored the role of the local sheriff in providing effective leadership for the public good in such areas as public safety, criminal justice system policy, community relations, and organization effectiveness and efficiency.
According to a news release from the sheriff’s office, Lukas is the first sheriff in Portage County to graduate from the NSI.
