June 30, 2015

By Jon Adler

During National Police Week, the Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos National Blue Alert Act was passed by Congress. Now law enforcement officers need more protection, an amendment to the federal Hate Crimes statute to create the Blue Shield Protection Act.

The Management Side of Leadership  

June 30, 2015

By Amaury Murgado

You often hear the word "leadership" used, but it has become so cliché that the real meaning has been all but lost. Many have pushed away the management side of the house and have ignored the fact that being an effective manager is a big part of a leader's job.
