I am the current Chief of Police at Dillard University. In this position I work with the Department Heads of the University, Mayor of New Orleans and the Chief of Police of New Orleans in addition to Law Enforcement Directors throughout the Federal, State and other local jurisdictions. I have a interactive beach mark management style which allows me to interact and review statistics in reference to the safety of others under my care and scope of position.
During my career of law enforcement which spans over twenty years I have learned that quality customer service is the key to building relationships. In addition once you have developed the conduit of information to move forward in assisting the community you are charged to a help. The hardest part of the job is getting people to buy into the system on hand. Once you get the community to listen to the services you can deliver, they are then ready to buy in and work collectively with you. Once they agree to listen you must also be willing to find out what their needs are and assist them with the problem on hand. Once you has buy in the relationship is in the developmental stage and its up to all parties involved to keep the partnership growing in a positive direction.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when you see the fruits of your labor. When a community is at a point where they believe in the system and know that there are avenues that will assist a person or community with a problem to build positive change.
