1. (SBU) On September 2-5, Embassy Cairo sponsored a four-day
workshop for twenty-four Egyptian National Police (ENP)
Generals and other senior police officials. This Senior
Leadership Workshop is part of the larger USG-Egyptian Police
project funded by the USG and sub-contracted by State-INL to
Bearing Point (BE) and The Emergence Group (TEG).

2. (SBU) The topics covered over the course of the workshop
were: 1) public image and perception, 2) police and the
media, 3) police misconduct, 4) policy and procedure, 5)
strategic planning overview, 6) managing change, and 7)
management strategies.

3. (SBU) Following the workshop participants proposed several
activities and initiatives that they believed would benefit
them in the future. One of the topics that generated a great
deal of discussion related to the development of good leaders
and managers and the distinction between them both. There was
also substantial interest in knowing more about the American
system of law enforcement.

4. (SBU) In response, the BE/TEG team will prepare a 1-2 page
brief on the American Policing System which will be
translated and distributed to participants at a future date.
This brief will be used in all future USG-ENP Project
initiatives as a participant handout.

5. (SBU) Comment: The ENP officials were highly receptive to
the workshop and actively engaged in all learning activities.
A solid relationship was established with many opportunities
for follow up as the participants proposed the idea of a
series of ongoing seminars or workshops focused on
contemporary law enforcement topics.
