Ted Hunt served for 32 years with Los Angeles Police Department, a tenure that included 12 years as director of the Police Association. He is a journalist and organizational consultant and has also served on the Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission, Alcoholic Beverage Control Appeals Board and the Speaker's Commission on Police Conduct. In this article, Hunt proposes that unions should seek to partner with the chief to make communities safer; should provide meaningful upward feedback designed to help the chief become a better leader; and states that when chiefs develop policies and procedures, they should include all stakeholders, particularly the union.
