Time & Location
About the Event
Today, the role of police is evolving toencompass broader areas of influence, from local community problems to global issues. The impace an officer can have on a community goes far beyond arrest and prosecution of criminals. The focus has become more on change leadership, change management, public trust, competence, problem solving, analysis and collaboration among community groups and other police agencies. Police work and police responsibilities are more thoroughly viewed under aspects of legitimacy. There are close links betgween these kinds of requirements and high expectations from the public whose police service - both the whole organization and the individual officer - should have a problem - oriented approach, act in accordance with the situation, in an anticipative, competent way and with a sense of social responsibility. A common refrain found in the research and practice is the leadership competence - as opposed to incompetence is necessary. ONE powerful way to prevent inefficient management and ineffective leadership from occurring at the supervisory and managerial levels is to instill leadership completence as a required competency in front line officers, so that when they are promoted, they already have been devleoping their leadership capacity for years.
