One reader of Rising Through the Ranks: Leadership Tools and Techniques for Law Enforcement said, “I know Mike Wynn personally, but little about law enforcement. But my MBA from B.C. and 20+ years of followership and leadership in the financial services industry has given me much experience with the concept of good management. After reading 'Rising Through the Ranks' I understand that leadership skills are quite different from the focus of my management training. I'm impressed with how applicable the concept of leadership is to the business world I know. The book is a good read and makes an excellent case for the universal need for good leaders. I'm recommending it to all the business managers I know.”

One reader of Rising Through the Ranks: Leadership Tools and Techniques for Law Enforcement said, “I enjoyed this book. It's interesting and easy reading.  Mike Winn does a great job getting the point across. Do the right thing because it's the right thing to do.”

Officers in the field help organize and maintain neighborhood groups, communicate with other city agencies and service providers in order to get service to residents and others.”
