My Top Cop Years were overwhelmingly creative because every time I saw a problem, the focus was on solutions. I am illustrating a select few for you, drawn from my carefully documented archives. If the department did not have the resources I sought them from outside. I was never shy of asking for anything that would benefit the people to be served. Because they needed answers, not excuses. For all these solutions, I had the support of some of my seniors, team members and juniors. They were excited about the novelty and ease of doing their duty. They, equally, got the credits and due recognition. Many of them saw growth in their new learning. This sowed the seeds for empowered and creative leadership.
