Leadership Philosophy

We, as Officers of the CBRPD, will lead this Department toward a high state of operational readiness and proficiency.  We will become technically and tactically sound.  We will develop a sense of responsibility among subordinates.  Set the example.  Ensure that all assigned tasks are understood, supervised and accomplished.  We will make sound and timely decisions concerning operational and training issues.  This philosophy will be perpetuated through the following leadership traits:

Honesty - Earned through character, competence, and example.  Consistency between word and deed.

Empowerment - To enable all members to develop solutions, make decisions and strive toward a higher state of interdependence.

Accountability - As individuals, to fellow department members and to the Department.

Commitment - To professionalism, core values, and the Department.
