Chief Jesus "Eddie" Campa: What is the hardest thing about being a police chief?
Chief Campa: What is the hardest thing about being a police chief?
Chief Campa: The hardest thing about being a chief is trying to maintain harmony at all levels within the department and with the community that we serve.
Trying to keep everyone happy when you are trying to do the right thing is very hard, because people in general don’t like change.
I don’t like change for the sake of change, but when change needs to be implemented I have no problem doing it.
It is safe to say that people will criticize what they don’t understand. This is why when change is going to be implemented it is important to try to sell your ideas to those that will be affected.
So the hardest thing to do as a chief is to try to sell the new mission and vision.
