A recent article in the New Haven Independent revealed “Eight out of eight cops seeking to become captains passed the civil-service exam, leaving it up to the chief to pick five to promote.
The Civil Service Commission revealed and ratified the results of the exam at its monthly meeting Tuesday afternoon at 200 Orange St.’ The entire article is linked in this blog.
According to a 2011 report released by the National Policing Improvement Agency in the UK:
“Leadership is a complex research area and across all sectors there is ambiguity over which styles and behaviours are the most effective. Difficulties of linking leadership with organizational outcomes are particularly pronounced for the police, since common police performance measures are affected by multiple confounding factors.
The findings of this review are, therefore, largely based on perceptions of what makes a great police leader. There is virtually no reliable evidence of what impacts police leadership styles and behaviours make on the ground.” This is true of all police organizations governed by legal ethics, fairness and the laws in Connecticut. Although we often hear news to the contrary, we hope that in New Haven we are consistently striving to uphold the ideal.
Elements of Decision-making in Police Organizations© Bond & Morreale
“Police managers are required to make quick judgments and decisions that affect the lives and well being of officers and citizens that they have a duty to protect. However, there are two levels of decision-making that present themselves in police organizations. These decisions fall into the domains of crisis management and strategic management.”
