The November issue of Police Chief magazine focuses on police education, training, management, and leadership. What happens to agencies when chiefs retire depends greatly on the chiefs’ actions during their tenures and through the periods leading up to their exits. If agency heads have engaged in sound leadership practices and a positive direction and a sound legacy have been established, the organizational direction will not only stay on course but may actually improve. This is best accomplished through an expanded process that comprises organization-wide leadership and staff development practices. Cover photography by Kourosh Nikoui.
