Lieutenant Wayt has successfully completed the twenty-two week Staff and Command program held in Evanston, Illinois from May 13 – October 13, 2019.

This program, which was implemented by the Center for Public Safety in 1983, has graduated over 25,000 students both nationally and internationally. Lieutenant Wayt was a student in SPSC Class #463 which accommodated a total of 24 students for the twenty-two week period.

Each student is academically challenged through written examinations, projects, presentations, and quizzes in addition to a staff study paper that are all required parts of the curriculum. Upon successful completion, students may be awarded a total of six units of undergraduate credit from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

The Center for Public Safety was established at Northwestern University in 1936 with the specific goal of expanding university-based education and training for the Law Enforcement Community. Since its inception, the Center has broadened its original objective and now provides a variety of courses and programs in the area of Police Training, Management Training, and Executive Development.

Previously, Lieutenant Wayt received his Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and Masters of Business Administration from Bethel University.

A highly proactive officer, he has been awarded with the Life Saving Medal and the Medal of Valor and is a past recipient of both the Mark Vance Domestic Violence Officer of the Year and the Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.)
