The most common problems in leadership of Law Enforcement is the lack of example setting and leading from the front. All to often guys get to a position and think that one part or another of the job is beneath them because they made Sgt., Lt., or Capt. Those guys need to still get out and mix it up with the guys. They need to make cases, make arrest, write reports and do it very well. You should be the example of how reports are written, of how to deal with complainants, and how to make a solid case. It seems that the more they move up, the less police work they actually want to do.
