Police Leadership in the New Normal—Part II—With Randy Means

Course Description:
Supervisory styles can and will vary from supervisor to supervisor but adherence to certain key principles cannot.

Police Leadership in the New Normal—Part II deals with a variety of supervisory and managerial responsibilities that are non-negotiable. Sanctions must be consistent and proportionate, and they cannot vary from supervisor to supervisor. This requires a systemic approach to handling what historically was left to individual supervisory and managerial discretion.

This intensive two-day course demonstrates the need for organizational solutions to organizational problems and emphasizes roles and responsibilities of the various members of the leadership team—sergeants to chief. Topics addressed include:

  • Supervisor roles and responsibilities
  • Strengthening organizational culture
  • Principles of effective leadership
  • Proper use of supervisory power
  • Defining and dealing with "misconduct"
  • Keys to "fairness" in dealing with employees
  • Routing and analysis of negative information
  • Liability prevention and risk management
