Captain Spencer Daniels Graduates 10 Project Leadership Program


Hamilton County, TN – On July 24, 2023, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Uniformed Services Captain Spencer Daniels graduated from the prestigious executive leadership training program entitled the 10 Project.

The 10 Project is a management-based program created by The Brock Center and is designed for individuals in executive leadership positions. It is taught by experienced business leaders and educators throughout our community working or specializing in a multitude of disciplines from the public, private, and non-profit sectors. This rigorous and fast paced program consists of (10) mentors and (10) mentees and is comprised of (10) leadership-based modules taught over a (10) month period.

“As a former graduate of the 10 Project, I can personally attest to the importance of this leadership course and how the principles it teaches mentees can systematically foster and sustain an environment of higher learning and professional development within an organization. A strong leader knows they do not operate in a silo and true leadership begins when you put your team and your organization’s priorities first and lead by example,” stated Sheriff Austin Garrett.

With the completion of this program, Captain Daniels will become a Brock Fellow and joins a distinct group of graduates who are making an important impact in our community and the organizations they serve by leading others based on a foundation of values-based principles.

“As sheriff, it is important for our agency to support professional development for our people and the principles taught by this course furthers my vision for developing strong leaders within the HCSO and our community. I am proud of Captain Daniels for undertaking the 10 Project and seeing it through to fruition. The principles and values he has learned throughout this program and the relationships he has built with his fellow mentees and mentors will greatly aid him in his leadership role not only in this agency, but in our community as well. I look forward to seeing future members of this agency participating in this leadership program,” stated Sheriff Austin Garrett.

Please join with us as we congratulate Captain Spencer Daniels on his completion of the 10 Project and thank him for his service to this agency and our community.
