In my opinion the most common leadership problem I see in Law Enforcement is lack of trust and confidence in the “Admin”. Every time I meet with other team leaders I hear about administrators who lower moral with poor leadership. In my own experience, I have seen what appears to be self serving leadership; people who are more worried about promotions, careers or positions than actually leading and doing the right thing. In this course we have heard from some outstanding leaders, its unfortunate that there is so must mistrust between the ranks. There are some exceptions, with great LE leaders, but in my 20 yrs in Law Enforcement, its a rare case to see a highly motivated, competent, high ranking administrators.
