Abstract
This November 2012 issue of The Police Chief magazine contains seven main articles dealing with issues relevant to policing and police leadership. The first article, The Police Chief as Coach: Analogies between Sports and Effective Police Leadership, promotes the theory that police chiefs must act as coaches do, and engender respect among those they lead, the media, and the community. The second article, Animal Protection and Welfare Training Becomes Essential to Law Enforcement, discusses the growing need for a police response to and responsibility for animal protection, safety, and welfare. The third article, Armenian Police Officers Receive American Training in IACP Pilot Program, discusses the pilot rotation of the International Police Education and Training Program (IPET). The fourth article, Organization-wide Leadership: Expanding the Traditional Succession Planning Model, discusses the need for police agencies to have an effective succession planning model to deal with changes in agency leadership. The fifth article, Educating the 21st Century Cop: Developing Blue Courage and Practical Wisdom, discusses the need for police to show respect for the community in order to build the trust and partnerships necessary for effective policing. The sixth article, Every Gun, Every Time, provides information for departments to use to protect the public and promote officer safety through the use of recovered guns to solve crimes and identify suspects. The seventh article, The Door to Advancement in Criminal Justice is Education, and Chiefs Are the Key: A Police Chief Perspective, discusses how police chiefs are responsible for letting their officers know the importance of a criminal justice degree. Additional columns in the magazine cover issues such as ethics and professionalism, misconduct by experienced officers, and officer safety.
