Every organization within the field of criminal justice has a management hierarchy of some sort. Included among the many tasks assigned to managers are budget planning, financial decision making, and effecting personnel decisions. However, what is missing at times in criminal justice agencies is effective leadership. Too often policy makers confound leadership with management. The two can be, and often are, quite dissimilar.
In the City of New Orleans immediately after Hurricane Katrina, a variety of political and local managers and leaders congregated in the Central Business District in an effort to arrive at a consensus as to the wisest course of action. Among those present was Michael Brown, the director of FEMA, Ray Nagin, the Mayor of New Orleans, and various state politicians. No action plan could be developed as each respective politician was so focused on their own needs that they soon became blinded to effective alternatives. Added to those problems were the combined effects of serious deficiencies in communication and coordination of rescue efforts.
