We are still in the mindset of supervision. Our agency along with others still have the old school mentality of seniority is the best practice for promotions. While we all know this isn’t true this still tends to happen. I believe that when you couple that with millennial’s who aren’t afraid to speak up and challenge the decisions or action of their supervisor then you start to see the kick back and resistance from patrol. I strongly believe that we must continue to educate our supervisors (who should be leaders), and help them become great leaders.
