Leading Warriors and Covert Ops

March 26, 2012
Managing a successful clandestine operation usually requires coordination, information sharing, familiarity with the terrain and, if it involves Islamist counter-terror tactics, an understanding of Muslim friend or foe.

Teamwork Minus the B.S.

March 20, 2012

We live in an age of political correctness where saying the right things seems to have more value than doing the right things. People use catch phrases to draw attention to themselves and make them seem wise and caring.

Competency Trumps Gender

March 14, 2012
It wasn't until I became the first female to reach the rank of lieutenant and subsequently commander in my organization that gender became the focus. The media and the public were trying to shine a light on what I had spent so many years successfully deflecting and it was making me extremely uncomfortable.

NAWLEE Hosts Annual Conference In August

February 17, 2012
The National Association of Women Law Enforcement Executives will host their annual national conference in Austin, Texas, from Aug. 1-5, the group announced.

How To Recognize a Troubled Operator

February 1, 2012
Leading a tactical team can be a tedious and mentally draining task. When a tactical member, let alone one of your best operators in the game, suddenly has a life crash, keep an open line of communication with that person.

Leading by Example

November 18, 2011

What most agencies do well is produce managers; it helps with short-term goals but exasperates long-term ones. Please don't tell me you are part of that innocuous group of lost souls that think managing and leading are the same thing, because they're not.

Urban Shield 2011: Bound by Duty

October 31, 2011
Leadership starts at the top, and spreads throughout the entire Alameda County Sheriff's Office. This is the reason Urban Shield continues to offer the "best of the best" training for first responders.

Tactical Leadership

July 28, 2011
Leaders develop strong personality traits and inspire others to follow them. They rely on the principle of influence, and often create a "want to" environment rather than a "have to" environment for officers working under them.

FTOs Must Embrace a Change Agent Role

June 13, 2011
I've always believed that the FTO should be the first one registered for training. If they are to pass on the knowledge, they have to be the sharpest. They need to be the ones leading way to embrace and implement change for the good.

Non-Cop Films With Serious Cop Lessons

May 20, 2011
When all those slaves stand up and identify themselves as Spartacus, ask yourself if there hasn't been a time or two when one of your fellow coppers couldn't have benefited from such solidarity?

Manage Officers Equitably, Rather Than Fairly

February 22, 2011
Treating everyone "fairly" doesn't work. Rather, you must be equitable. What's the difference? I always say, "Fair happens once a year, and it's called the county fair." Equity should happen daily. Equity takes into consideration differences, while still giving everyone access to opportunity.

Texas Congressman Calls Attack on ICE Agents a 'Game Changer'

February 18, 2011
McCaul went on to say, "The United States will not tolerate acts of violence against its citizens or law enforcement, and I believe we must respond forcefully. This should be a long overdue wake-up call for the Obama administration that there is a war on our nation's doorstep."

Peace On Earth

December 22, 2010

There is no peace on Earth this Christmas season, but there are peaceful moments. And the only reason that we have such peaceful moments is because of the sheepdogs.

Problem Solving

August 9, 2010

Though there are many decision-making formats, there is one common component that is more important than any other: defining the problem you are trying to solve. One of the key ways to do so is by framing.

BOOK REVIEW, If I Knew Then: Life Lessons From Cops on the Street

June 24, 2010
This book differs from similar collective works in the sheer passion of the writers. For once, they are allowed to write from their inner warrior's soul. You will sense a certain energy from the contributors that you do not normally sense in this genre of writing.

Advice to the Newest FTO

April 27, 2010
Set the learning and work standards and stick to them. None of the "good enough for government work" crap. Teach your recruits to work, train, and earn their keep.

Hail-Fellow-Well-Met

January 1, 2009

The door of the unmarked unit swung open and a giant of a man pulled himself out of the car. His humor and informal leadership skills made him not only our favorite instructor but the one who we all hoped to become.

Customers Are Always Right—Even When They're Wrong

June 17, 2008
Have you ever been in a class or seminar—as a student, not a presenter—and found that the instructor argued with his or her students? I have, and it happened again just recently.

Teach with Less Talk, More Action

April 18, 2008
Training should be more of an exchange of ideas, and less of a lecture. What officer students really like is more interactive training, and less "talking at them."

What Is a Trainer?

February 26, 2008
Of course we could patrol and investigate, and supervise and manage without trainers. But could we do it well, and properly? In many cases, no, we could not.
