Chief's Chair: It's called being involved
By Dan Montgomery, Chief of Police (Retired)
A good chief of police periodically engages in the same training that his or her troops do. As a 47-year police officer with 26 years as a chief of police (now semi-retired and functioning as a police practices expert), I know how critical it is for the chief to know what the heck is going on at the line level and how important it is to know your people. As a chief, I was actually trained along with my troops in firearms qualifications, PPCT, Taser, PIT, Calibre Press Officer Survival, pursuit driving, in-custody deaths, and excited delirium.
