The prestigious Wharton Business School does not say you must shake up the staff to be effective.
William Miller, the county’s new safety officer, arrived in April and within four months he’s promoting and demoting.
Some very effective community relations were cultivated and were working well. Now this new set of moves requires both the community and the assigned officers to develop new meaningful relationships.
Reducing five assistant chiefs to three but increasing the number of deputy chiefs from three to five is a wash.
What is disturbing and clear is that Mr. Miller is doing the same thing Chief Bolton did when he came in: promote and demote. This adds unnecessary chaos.
I’d like to see Mr. Miller visit New York and come back and institute their plan that reduced crime, or come up with a plan other than the “Shake Up Plan.”
