Poor employee morale is a serious problem facing law enforcement and one that, if not confronted and corrected, will threaten the mission, productivity, discipline, and even the integrity of a police agency. With stakes so high, it is only natural law enforcement managers make raising employee morale a top priority.
Or is it?
The reality is, many police managers refuse to acknowledge the issues or, if they do, adhere to the belief, “Low morale isn’t our problem! They can fix it themselves,” while perpetuating the culture that breeds it. For most cops, low morale has far less to do with what they see and experience on the street than the impact of politics, policies, and practices inside the station.
This training is for supervisors and managers who want to bring the “best cop” out of each officer, who understand the power and productivity of happy staff, and who want to do more than pay lip service to the heavy responsibility of effective leadership.
