A huge leadership problem in law enforcement is when people are promoted beyond their capabilities. Often times people look to move into leadership positions without truly understanding what is and can be involved. Every possible problem cannot be solved or expected to be solved because they passed a written exam and interview. Leadership positions are often looked at simply as a pay raise but the responsibilities are often overlooked before people decide to move toward those positions.
