None of this stuff is in a vacuum. A Sheriff does not control a chief of police in his jurisdiction.
There is vast inter-connectivity, enabling, facilitating, feeding on and building off of others beliefs, rhetoric and actions.
A chief of police, or any chief executive for that matter, makes and sets policy and procedure. They establish and appoint agency-wide leadership that follows, supports and carries out the will of that chief executive. The chief executive also sets the operational framework, goals and strategies that ultimately are carried out, right down the line.
You make a massive mistake and a mal-evaluation if you truly believe what you posted.
