JR,
I agree. If you have a few effective informal leaders on your shift, it makes your job much easier. Like you noted, you can’t be on every call and, if you have a few trusted leaders they can cover the gaps. Also, I think these informal leaders can help other officers understand some of the not so popular decisions by the chief of police.
