Wildwood Crest Police Lt. Edward Gorski graduated last month from a program that aims to provide leadership training to police chiefs and law enforcement executives, according to a news release.

Gorski completed the Mid-Atlantic Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar (MALEEDS) June 16, the release said. MALEEDS is one of 26 regional command colleges associated with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), according to the release.

The conference is held annually at Princeton University and open to law enforcement leaders from departments with 75 officers or less, according to the MALEEDS website. 

Sixty men and women from agencies in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York graduated from the program last month, a MALEEDS spokesperson said.

"While we pride ourselves on our high level educational program, the MALEEDS Executive Board also provides nightly networking opportunities to continue the learning experience outside of the classroom and encourages our attendees to foster relationships that will allow them to better themselves and their agencies," MALEEDS President Chuck Davall, Jr. said in a statement.

The program is co-sponsored by the Newark, New York, and Philadelphia Divisions of the FBI, along with active and retired law enforcement officers from the former Princeton Borough and the Princeton Township Police Departments, the Princeton University Department of Public Safety and the River Vale Police Department, according to MALEEDS.
