Law Enforcement Leadership

Twin Falls, Idaho, Police Chief Leland (Lee) DeVore wrote an outstanding article entitled How to Become a Leader in Your Organization. It was published in the June 2002, Vol. 2 issue of "Bulletin", an Idaho Peace Officer Standard and Training (POST) publication.

In his article he elaborates on four critical attributes:
  • Be a person of integrity
  • Be willing to make the tough calls
  • Be a team player and see the big picture
  • Be a problem solver, not a problem identifier

Chief DeVore has a Bachelors Degree in Police Administration and a Masters in Management from Redlands University.
