In reviewing the text, the author identifies Ten Principles of the Community-Oriented Policing Chief. Select four of the principles, in rank order, that you deem to be most important for the Chief’s success. Provide your opinion as to why these principles are most important.  Does the importance of these selected principles change over time based on the established implementation of community-oriented policing?  

Leadership- My first ranking of the ten principles for a police chief would be leadership.  I feel this is important because if you cannot lead people or in this case a department and community, the program will not work.  Leadership has many titles or styles and it does not matter which one the police chief is but he needs to be able to lead a team to a common goal.  Some of the traits that a good leader should have are; honesty, focus, passion, respect and excellent persuasion abilities just to name a few  (Farrell, 2011).  Someone must lead the charge for change and implementation and a good leader as a police chief is the answer.

Educator, Motivator and Trainer-  This principle comes in a close second as you must be able to take the vision of what the police department will look like, how it will interact with the community and who will be responsible for the different parts of the program.  Implementing community policing is a tough job and you will need a leader who can motivate the parties to keep working towards the common goal.  The chief will also have to train and educate those that need it so that they understand the process completely.  If you can teach them, keep them motivated through the process, then this will allow for success at a much higher rate.

Commitment- This is pretty much what it says, you need a chief that is committed.  I have seen so many leaders in our community come in, lay out a great plan and then after a few months you read where they are looking for another job or they have began another program and the original plan has not been completed.  Commitment to the community and to the department is paramount for community policing to be successful.

Role Model-  Having a chief that is a role model is a key for the solidifying of the process of getting the community to trust him or her and the department.  People naturally will base their opinion off of the latest news or drama and so if the police chief has been involved in some questionable circumstances in disciplining his officers or other items, they will loose faith in the chief and ultimately the department.  Trust from the community members is important in community policing and this allows for the program to grow and get implemented with little resistance and increased participation.

  I do not think that the principles change over time but they will rise to more visibility depending on the situation.  Once the community policing is in place and is operating, if a situation such as an office who has acted inappropriately occurs, it will be important for the chief to handle the situation properly and without issue in the eyes of the community.  So as time goes on, they will rise and fall depending on the situation but they do not change as far as importance.
