The biggest leadership problem I see in LE is the disconnect between Admin and the rank & file. The Chief has lofty ideas and expectations. These are passed down to the rank & file but somehow along the way, the message changes. It is much like the game we all played as kids where someone tells the next kid something and by the time it makes it back to the leader of the group it has morphed and changed. I have always been a firm believer the higher you go, the more your forget what it is like to be a cop. I try to keep this in mind when I am dealing with issues from above and below.
