I know for a fact that you don’t have to hold a title to take a leadership position. I’ve seen it before. I’ve seen Capt’s and Lt’s take orders from a junior officer because that junior officer may have more knowledge, intel, or background with dealing with certain situations. I have also seen a officer that came from another agency and would have more experience than the supervisor he works for, but they work great together.
