- What should you be looking for in a new police chief? How are you going to evaluate your new leader? Do one or more of the four major obstacles arresting the development of your police department exist? For insight and direction on this and other important police improvement issues, take a look at “Arrested Development: A Veteran Police Chief Sounds Off About Protest, Racism, Corruption and the Seven Steps Necessary to Improve Our Nation’s Police” (Amazon.com in US and EU). And the blog at http://improvingpolice.wordpress.com/ where other current police improvement issues are discussed. Good luck and may we all experience not just good but great policing! Great policing is accomplished by police who are well-trained and led, restrained in their use of force, honest, and courteous to every person.
- Sarasota, educate yourself regarding your new chief. Obviously Tom Barwin did not. Mr. Barwin, are you aware of the past and present Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaints involving your newly appointed chief? Are you aware the Town of Ocean City paid out $550,000 in legal expenses to defend her for the 2008 case? As part of the settlement the Town of Ocean City had to pay out $40,000 to several OCPD sergeants and mandated EEOC age and sexual discrimination training for all police employees. Did she disclose this during her interview? Is that on her 27 page resume? I think not!
Did you also know last year 6 Ocean City Police officers with less than 10 years on the force all resigned within 5 months of each other because of the intolerable work environment she created with her command staff? OCPD rank and file offic...ers are celebrating her retirement because they are rid of her. Soon you will learn firsthand why they’re celebrating. Good luck…you’re going to need it.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
