Want to hear the details behind Police Excellence? Listen to Bill Reilly’s interview by Brian Willis of Winning Mind Training where Bill discusses what it takes to lead your agency’s culture toward Police Excellence.
‘There’s an old saying, “Organizational culture eats policy for lunch.”’
-The Final Report of The President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing
Too many police agencies have a disconnect between desired behaviors and actual behaviors. This occurs despite ample rules, regulations and training. Even accredited agencies are not immune from this disconnect. The bottom line is that rules do not a practice make.
One of the most powerful forces influencing individual and collective behavior is an organization’s culture. When the culture is healthy and supportive, proper behaviors are the norm. If, however, the organization’s culture is unhealthy or dysfunctional, the likelihood of behaviors being as desired is decreased.
All of this becomes more problematic when supervisor candidates are required to provide “textbook” answers on their promotion exams. If those textbook answers are not the norm in the agency, uncertainty and frustration can be heightened.
Police Excellence was conceived based on these frustrations. Police Excellence provides police leaders at all ranks tools that they can apply to reduce uncertainty and enhance trust inside the agency as well as with the community.
Accountability promotes integrity!
The three focus points you will see covered in Police Excellence presentations are:
- The 3 ways leaders can change culture for the better
- The 4 ways leaders can increase officer trustworthiness
- The 5 ways leaders can decrease uncertainty in the workplace
That’s it…3 tools that when applied consistently in your workplace can move your culture to one of Police Excellence. If this is the improvement that is needed in your law enforcement agency, consider the program delivery options below.
