Chief's Chair: Causing waves
Next I would allow my patrol officers to eat lunch together. Currently no two patrol officers are allowed to eat together, but any number of CIS officers and supervisors are allowed to. This is something I have questioned since I started, and no supervisor can give a good reason for it.
If our budget was increased, I would get new equipment for the inside the cruisers. Because we have a bad drug problem in our area and no access to a K-9, I would also start a K-9 unit.
Overall my current chief is doing a good job but it seems many people that fill the supervisor rolls are afraid to “cause waves" — in other words, change things or speak up — so if I were chief, I would go into it with a very open mind.
