I think one of the most common leadership problems in Law Enforcement is a lack of communication. This is a very broad topic, and I could apply this to many different areas of Law enforcement. However, I will focus on the relationship side of communication. Throughout the course we have heard that leadership is about relationships and communication. The more I hear this, the more I realize I need to work harder at establishing relationships with those above and below me. With that in mind, I need to do a better job of ensuring the lines of communication are open between those above and below me. As I reflect on employee issues I have encountered as a leader within Law Enforcement, I realize the majority of those issues could have been prevented with better communication.
