Our goal is to become an extension of your agency, helping your leaders build your department with confidence.

The firefighter benchmarking program has been part of our firefighter selection process for many, many years. The candidate is evaluated based on a firefighter benchmark built using current Strongsville firefighters. I truly believe it is important to hire individuals with high moral character, strong work ethic, positive attitude, and dependability. The quality of our recent firefighter selections speaks volumes to the credibility of benchmarking.

Firefighter benchmarking has helped our department find the best candidates that fit the culture of our department. Being able to determine the most important character traits has allowed us to build an efficient department that offers a high level of service. We have used this benchmarking since 2008 and have found the personnel hired have less discipline issues and perform at higher levels.

My initial involvement with PRADCO came in 2013 when I was a candidate for the chief’s position in Independence and PRADCO conducted candidate evaluations. The process is very user-friendly and the feedback provided from the process was extremely useful in gauging my professional strengths and weaknesses. I continue to utilize PRADCO in the areas of supervisor development as well as new-hire evaluations. The coaching process has been a great asset for our first line supervisors. The new-hire assessments go far beyond a simple psychological assessment, instead measuring potential candidates against the values and behaviors that are important to our organization. Not only does this process help us determine if a candidate will be a good fit for our organization, but it also provides our field training officers with a great training tool. Using PRADCO’s results a new officer’s field training can be customized to emphasize areas identified for improvement. Hiring a police officer is a long-term commitment, and PRADCO is an invaluable resource to ensure that we are hiring the most qualified candidates who will bring the most value to our organization.

PRADCO’s 360 process is the best tool to prepare police officers for supervisory and command positions. The process is highly rewarding for those police officers who wish to develop and hone their leadership skills; to learn how to effectively motivate the 21st century police officer; and to encourage leadership and management skills development in subordinates thus bringing the concept of succession planning to a profession in which it is often overlooked. My most successful sergeants and lieutenants are those who have embraced the 360 process fully. I have also utilized the 360 process for line officers who have demonstrated the potential for future leadership roles in the department. If you are a law enforcement chief executive who is truly committed to developing leaders for your department, PRADCO’s 360 process is a worthy investment.
