Succession Planning for Policing Agencies

Succession planning is often discussed but rarely implemented in law enforcement agencies.  And it is a crucial responsibility of every police chief and sheriff in America.   The natural mentoring process that chiefs and sheriffs engage in with their number twos is valuable, but it’s not enough to meet the crucial needs of planned succession.  Now you can easily formalize your agency’s succession plan with professional police chief coaching for your number twos with Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching® for Police Leaders.  Your investment in leadership coaches for your up-and-coming police leaders could pay significant dividends for increased public trust.

Transformational Programs for Police Leaders

Nearly ubiquitous in private sector companies, professional coaching is a rarity among policing agencies.  Now with a trained, professional coach who has also walked in their shoes, your up-and-coming police leaders will benefit from a coach who has an objective view of performance.  In the same way professional athletes have coaches, your agency’s police leaders can focus on aspects of the performance they’re trying to improve.  Coaching, rather than just mentoring, can transform performance and prepare individuals for leadership positions.

Chief Dine started his police career in 1975, with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) in Washington, DC, the sixth largest municipal police agency in the United States, where he spent twenty-seven years and rose to Assistant Chief. After retiring from MPD, Chief Dine was Chief of Police for fourteen years, consecutively leading the Frederick, Maryland Police Department (FPD) in Maryland, and then the United States Capitol Police (USCP).  Currently, Chief Dine is consulting in the policing field.  With all three agencies, Chief Dine gained expertise in multiple critical aspects of policing including building community coalitions, community policing, juvenile crime prevention, managing major events, use of force and internal investigations/discipline, building effective crime reduction strategies, and anti-terrorism/security policing. During his tenure as MPD’s First District Commander, an area encompassing Capitol Hill, public housing, and downtown Washington DC, homicides were reduced by 60% and community policing flourished.  As Assistant Chief, he commanded Internal Affairs, the Force Investigation Teams, the Disciplinary Review Division, the Office of Equal Employment Opportunity, where Chief Dine managed, supervised, and implemented historic internal changes regarding use of force investigations via the Memorandum of Agreement MPD created with the Department of Justice to institute agency wide use of force reforms which are now followed nationally by many agencies reforms and which reduced MPD’s police shootings.

In Frederick, Maryland, the second largest city in the state, Chief Dine focused on building a new strategy of community policing and intelligence-led policing in the Frederick Police Department (FPD), improving training, producing the agency’s first ever strategic plan, acquiring national accreditation (flagship status), and aggressive use of technology.  These efforts resulted in a ten-year record of crime reduction, problem solving, building trust and communication with all constituents, and implementation of a cohesive and multi-faceted approach to combating crime and maintaining the high quality of life in Frederick. By instituting community policing and partnerships, marshaling resources, problem solving, intelligent use/acquisition of technology, extensive crime analysis, aggressive acquisition of grants, and maximization of resources, the agency was able to effectively combat crime, build bridges with the Frederick’s African-American, GLBTQ, Muslim, Deaf, and Latino communities, and create a mental health task force working with the mental health community through effective partnerships to improve service to those suffering from mental illness and minimize use of force issues. FPD represented municipal police agencies in Maryland in piloting the lethality assessment which is now used statewide and nationally to reduce domestic violence. Frederick became known as a safe city with an enviably high quality of life, protected by a professional and responsive police department.  The FPD was forged into an accessible, credible, and transparent department recognized as an outstanding agency.

As Chief of the United States Capitol Police, with a sworn staff of 1,800 officers, in addition to daily leading security operations for the world’s most iconic symbol of freedom and a top threat target, Chief Dine managed, led security, and directed multiple major national events with worldwide  attention, including the second Inauguration of the 44th President of the United States Barack Obama, four State of the Union addresses, multiple joint sessions of Congress and the historic visits of Pope Francis, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and other world leaders, and  the African Summit with fifty heads of State-the largest such visit at the U.S. Capitol. During his tenure, Chief Dine successfully oversaw hundreds of demonstrations, revamped hiring, recruiting and recruit training, the internal disciplinary process, civilianized the public information office, completed a 100 million dollar state of the art, digitally encrypted, radio system, revamped the USCP booklet for the Congressional Community regarding active shooter events and sent the entire department through active shooter training,  hired a Diversity Officer to ensure fairness and diversity across USCP and Labor Relations Specialist to improve labor relations, began crisis intervention training for officers, attained CALEA’s Gold Standard Accreditation, and produced a new strategic plan for the USCP.
