A leadership challenge

In 2007, the Canadian government appointed William Elliott to the post of Commissioner of the RCMP, Canada`s national police force. Elliott, a senior bureaucrat and former national security advisor to Canada`s prime minister, was the first civilian to head the nearly 135-year old RCMP agency. Elliott`s appointment cam in response to independent investigations that faulted the RCMP for a dysfunctional organizational culture and misuse of the mounties` insurance and pension funds. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper`s choice of Elliott was against the wishes of senior RCMP officials who wanted someone from within the agency appointed to the top position. Elliott was not a member of the RCMP nor did he have police experience. Your research paper must address the following questions: 1. What leadership challenges face an outsider who is appointed to head a police agency? 2. Can a person without police experience manage a police agency effectively? 3. Can a person without police experience lead a police agency? 4. What leadership skills should the chief executive of a police agency possess and demonstrate? Paragraph format is required and you must compartmentalize your essay according to the questions that you are required to address; i.e. break the body of the essay down into 4 (or more) components which clearly answer the questions asked. In addition, your research paper should have a clearly defined introduction, body and conclusion. (cbc has articles dealing with these issues that you can site)
