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.

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."

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.

On Leading Cops and Two-Year-Olds

April 1, 2006

Most of us are leaders in some facet of our lives. Any police officer who doesn't think of himself or herself as a leader is just plain wrong. I doubt that a cop who is also a parent could argue being a parent isn't about leadership, because it most certainly is.

To Lead and Serve

February 1, 2006

"The Leader must himself believe that willing obedience beats forced obedience, and that he can get this only by really knowing what should be done." - Xenophon, 360 BC
