    Chain of command

    PJ_24:

    The chain of command for an organization establishes the responsible person next in line for you to address issues or concerns.

    Chain of Command establishes a means for you to address those issues or concerns and then if you are are not pleased with the outcome, take your issue or concern to the next level.

    You chould not jump the chain of command and address your concerns to the very top, you feel the issue needs the attention o fthe top person, often times issues are addressed at the lowest level and then work there way up if no resloution can be made.

    Ofc Bigelow offered a view of his chain of command for his agency. That chain looks alot like most departrments.

    I hope this help, if you have addtional questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at the address provided in my profile.
