My name is Jim Jordan. I have had the privilege of working with the Boston Police Department and hundreds more departments over my nearly 30-year career in police administration and city government. I am now teaching and consulting independently at http://www.sergeantsleadership.org. I have learned the best of what I know from the thousands of smart, dedicated and ethical police personnel and scholars who have guided me along the way. I have learned a lot in many hundreds of Corridor Conversations.
My address is named for the great Reform commissioner of the Boston Police at the turn of the 20th century. Commissioner O’Meara died just a short while before the Strike in 1919. He was replaced by a vicious puppet (of Gov. Coolidge) named Edwin U. Curtis. Had O’Meara lived events may have turned out quite differently.
