Hope to get and share some good ideas from this group. Sgt.s get it from above and below. We need to stick together.

I agree, I was promoted to Sergeant in Jan 09' and I am having a hell of a time adjusting to it. I am looking forward to sharing some info and getting your thoughts and ideas as we forge along in our roles as supervisors.

Just joined the group. It's nice to be with you guys. I'm sure this forum will be valuable for all of us as I have no doubt we all get it from above and below!

I also just joined this group and am looking to share ideas. I have been a sergeant since 1996 and have supervised both in uniform and db(my current assignment). Nice to meet everyone!

I promoted in May 2004. Being right in the middle is perhaps the hardest. It won't get easier, but you will learn to deal with it. This forum could become a valuable to.

Hello everyone. I just joined a bit ago and already believe this is one of the most important groups on this site. Sergeant is often viewed as the most prestigious rank from those below, due to their ability to be involved with patrol officers and still have some influence with the upper adminstration, as long as they use it. It is a difficult balancing act to say the least , as I'm sure DIVING COP is seeing. I was promoted in 2006 and have strived to maintain the goal I had of not forgetting where I came from, patrol. I believe I have and continue to do this. I use this as a guage for myself and possibly the most important advice I give new sergeants. I look forward to networking with you a ll and Be Safe.

My error I meant the newly promoted Robert Snachez, below. (not Diving Cop)

Hi guys my name is Tyrone Dillard i work for the Wynne Police department. I was promoted to Sergeant in 2006. I am 30 years old and it has really been a challange dealling with older officer's with me being the youngest Sergeant within the department. I hope to learn ideas from all of you guys

Tyrone, it seems you already have taken advantage of an important issue for new sgts. The ability to ask questions, seek advice from experienced officers, and realize you don't know it all. I also had the same issue, of dealing with older officers. I tested with many older officers and was promoted first and then had to supervise them. It's tough but the work you've done prior to promotion and the ability to make a decision, especially the tough ones, will help you be accepted by them. Be fair but firm and do your duty as a supervisor. Keep yourself current with the law and department policies and procedures. Once they see you are with them and not out to get them it gets much easier. DIVING COP has it on the money with listen, be open to their suggestions and they will come to you for advice.
