This article describes the concept of the Peer Leadership Group (PLG) offering law enforcement administrators a communication venue for employees to voice concerns in a non-threatening manner.
Abstract
A concept to bring employees together on their own to join in the overall problem-solving efforts of the department is the PLG. The employees choose a PLG committee of at least three employees, depending on the size of the organization. Those employees that sit on the PLG committee are decided by the employees. Any department-related issue or matter is allowed to be discussed. The purpose of the PLG is to open the lines of communication between employees and the administration. The PLG is simply a way to provide a venue to address concerns among peers for employees who normally may be hesitant to bring issues of concern or ideas directly to a supervisor or administrators.
