One of the primary challenges facing law enforcement leaders today is the allocation of personnel in a time of crisis. Law enforcement agencies across the country are, simply put, forced to serve and protect with fewer sworn personnel than in past years. A years-long struggle to recruit and retain officers has been compounded by the logistical challenges of COVID-19, civil unrest, and rising rates of crime in many jurisdictions nationwide. 

In this two hour webinar, Chief Harry P. Dolan (Ret.) will draw from his 25 years of police executive experience to discuss effective strategies for maintaining operational integrity when under-staffed. 

The topics covered will include:

  • Leading by example and recognizing the dangers of “over-specialization”
  • Explaining WHY and embracing internal transparency in assignments
  • Avoiding “special unit-itis” in times of staffing shortages
  • Responding to community priorities in determining staffing priorities
