Leadership is important to all organizations including law enforcement. The purpose of this applied research project is threefold. First, it describes the four elements of transformational leadership from the literature. Second, this research project uses the Travis County Sheriff’s Office as a case study to facilitate exploration of the application of transformational leadership principles. Third, it provides recommendations used to enhance transformational leadership in the Travis County Sheriff's Office.

The four elements of transformational leadership identified in the literature are used to construct the conceptual framework. The framework is used to explore the management practices of the Travis County Sheriff's Office. A case study consisting of document analysis and structure interviews is utilized to perform this assessment.

Given the documents analyzed and structured interviews conducted, it seems as if the formal structure to support transformational leadership is in place in the Travis County Sheriff's Office. However, of the four elements, individual consideration is the least supported. This element should be addressed in order to develop transformational at the Travis County Sheriff's.
