The most active post during the past week was the piece on the “Blue Wall of Silence” and its negative effect on police accountability and professionalism. “Making Choices” continues to be, week after week, one of our top viewed posts along with leadership and police training topics.
Enjoy this blogsite and use it to help improve the delivery of police services in our society whether you are a deliverer or receiver of those services!
Remember, dialogue and discussion are always encouraged!
I served over 20 years as the chief of police in Madison (WI), four years as chief of the Burnsville (MN) Police Department, and before that as a police officer in Edina (MN) and the City of Minneapolis. I hold graduate degrees from the University of Minnesota and Edgewood College in Madison. I have written many articles over my years as a police leader. After retiring from the police department, I answered a call to ministry, attended seminary, and was ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church. After 25 years leading two Episcopal Churches in Portage and North Lake, Wisconsin, I now serve as Associate Pastor in a growing, dynamic, and Spirit-filled Lutheran congregation in nearby Mazomanie.
