“We do have some challenges and we are under the gun and Canadians expect to see positive change come about quickly in the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police). That’s what we are committed to. That’s what we’re engaged in. Every Canadian is proud fundamentally, deep down in their hearts of the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) and they want us to succeed. I have to seize that capitol and build on it.“
Leadership in Law Enforcement is so very unlike in nature from other disciplines. The leader of Law Enforcement has a three-dimensional vision. He has the vision of the Past, the Present, and the Future, and based on that vision he charts the course of his followers. The Leader instinctively knows that Leadership is at the pinnacle of human communication.
Leader in Law Enforcement is the one who feels the Calling. Not everyone can feel the Calling, and not everyone can answer the Calling. In fact, only a small number rise to the challenge. Personal incentive is the essence of the leadership. This inspires the leader to lead by example.
Law Enforcement Leaders are superior breed of people born with special endowments of human character. The spirit of a leader is fashioned by physical and mental qualities, intellectual heights, capabilities and temperament.
Law Enforcement Leaders are heroes. Upon their arrival, we perceive something about them that is outstanding. We observe the inner strength of their leadership aptitude. A leader is on a mission and we can tell. They present acts of altruistic benevolence in support of their followers.
Law Enforcement Leader is a person of great Vision, Imagination, and Wisdom. Like a prophet, he can predict what future a society is heading towards. He knows where the ripples caused by crime waves will hit. His judgement surpasses the judgement of the judges, jury and the lawyers since he upholds the law in its perfectionist form and is not influenced by the thought of any personal gains. His triumph is upholding the law and his honor is precious to him, and that is his accomplishment.
“You know the appointed end
of all things, and all the ways.
You know how many leaves the earth unfolds in spring,
how many grains of sand are driven by storm, wind, and wave
in the rivers and the sea.
You see clear the shape of the future
and what will bring it to pass.”
