The City of Coral Springs is proud to announce that Deputy Chief Bradley M.

The program is for executive-level law enforcement personnel from the U.S. and other nations, who look to raise law enforcement standards and enhance their credentials in the field. As a graduate of the 276th Session of the National Academy, Deputy Chief McKeone received 10-weeks of advanced leadership, communication and fitness training from criminal justice and military professionals.
Chief Clyde Parry, who nominated McKeone to attend the academy, says, “The landscape of the law enforcement profession is continually evolving, this requires innovative and forward-thinking leadership. Throughout his career, Deputy Chief McKeone has proven to be that type of leader, and this advanced training will serve him and the residents of Coral Springs well, now and in the future.”
