Every Officer is a Leader Summary


Every Officer is a Leader: Transforming Leadership in Police, Justice, and Public Safety by Terry Anderson (University College of the Fraser Valley, Abbotsford, Canada)

Every Officer is a Leader: Transforming Leadership in Police, Justice, and Public Safety, authored by leadership expert Terry Anderson and several well known leaders in the law enforcement and criminal justice profession, responds to the need for a comprehensive leadership development model for the education and training of police, justice and public safety supervisors, managers and front line officers. He examines how leadership development has a profound impact on the morale and performance of individual officers, teams, and organizations, illustrating in depth and detail how police and other justice and public safety leaders (in corrections, fire, customs, immigration, security, courts, etc.) can implement the Transforming Leadership process, skills, and principles.

The recent focus (during the past 10 years) on community policing initiatives has made competency based leadership skills training essential for front line officers. The author's innovative contribution is a focus on the necessity to build "a leadership organization" before - and to an extent, while - you move ahead into building a "learning organization" that is responsive to community and internal organizational needs. The personal, team, and organization development skills discussed in this book are necessary pre-requisites to successful implementation of any neighborhood or community policing initiatives.

Every Officer is a Leader: Transforming Leadership in Police, Justice, and Public Safety provides a model for integrating other models into a holistic leadership development framework. It furnishes a map for developing critical leadership skills with self-assessment, includes the developmental aspects of leadership expert Terry Anderson's previous book on Transforming Leadership, and applies them to law enforcement and criminal justice. Anderson and his contributing authors add clarity, perspective, and examples to show how individual leaders can develop themselves, and one another, into high-performance team leaders and officers who motivate others to respond to issues that affect the morale, health, and safety of the communities in which they serve. This new focus adds a perspective on security issues that affect police, justice and public safety organizations.

Every Officer is a Leader Reviews


"For anyone eager and serious about developing leadership that equips people for a high performance workplace, this book is an absolute must." -William C. Bean, Chairman Strategia, Previous Chief Financial Officer, IBM Training "Every Officer is a Leader is becoming a reality in the New Westminster Police Service. For the past two and a half years we have applied the principles and practices from Transforming Leadership to conduct an organizational needs assessment, implement a strategic plan, and facilitate team development. These principles have also been instrumental in personnel development in our organization. Knowledge and insights gained from this book, together with training, have challenged staff to build additional leadership competencies into their careers and relationships. Practicing the complex set of skills set out in this book enables our leaders to strengthen community policing initiatives. As a result, our Police Service and our community are becoming increasingly positive environments in which to work and live."-Peter Young, MBA, Chief of Police in New Westminster, British Columbia "With Transforming Leadership, Terry Anderson took readers on a journey of self-discovery on the way to becoming effective agents of positive change. In every Officer is a Leader the road winds through public safety organizations through the use of experiences and examples from law enforcement, but the destination remains consistent. I recommend this book to anyone determined to play an active role in 21st century police leadership."-Professor Ted Herbert, Director, Police Leadership Education, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada
