As a police chief, what would be on your reading list for various leadership levels in your department?
What are you reading and what do you recommend those whom you lead read?
My old alma mater, the Marines, got me thinking about this along with a reflection on what was and is on my bookshelf.
Remember, we are what we read, ponder, and act upon.

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.
