Take care of your officers
from By Brandon Elliott
This is a message to all you sheriffs, chiefs and administrative officers. It takes a vast amount of experience and calculated thinking to be the heads and executive officers of your agencies. What I want to address is what often gets lost in the bureaucracy that is police administration: taking care of the men and women who serve at your behalf. You may automatically think I am talking about pay and benefits. Although those are very important issues, that is not the focus of this article. This article is about your relationship with your officers, the dynamic of your agency and being the leader your officers need.
