Leadership Proficiency -- by Tom Atkin, RADM, USCG (Ret.)

We had the honor to hear from CMC Darrick Dewitt on what it means to be a “proficient” Tactical Law Enforcement operator. It was not surprising that Master Chief Dewitt’s article “nailed it” in terms of understanding the areas required to improve proficiency. It is not just a notion of simply being “qualified” but rather getting to where we embody all aspects of what it means to be a Coast Guard tactical law enforcement operator 24/7...it is more than just knowledge and experience, it is “attitude, character and most importantly leadership.”...
