This paper was prepared for the Spring 2016 Public Safety Administration 499: Capstone, taught by Professor Thomas Fowler.
This capstone paper explores how Transforming Leadership principles, as prescribed by Anderson, Gisborne, & Holliday, et al. (2006), can be applied to a typical law enforcement agency in order to better address common issues faced by agencies that have not identified an overarching leadership competency structure. By not adopting a set of leadership ideals agencies can find themselves not effectively addressing all of their strategic planning goals, both internally and externally, as Anderson, et al. (2006) suggests. This paper examines how the principles and formulas of Transforming Leadership apply to areas within the core curriculum of the Public Safety Administration field of study and can help assist the Suisun City Police Department mange strategic goals; including, assisting a law enforcement agency identify their core ethics, give better service to their community, develop strong group dynamics and human resources competencies, use strategic planning more completely and address Homeland Security issues more easily.
