PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Phoenix Police Chief Daniel Garcia has been on the job just short of a year. A recently released survey of his officers gives him terrible reviews as a leader.

The Phoenix Law Enforcement Association and the Phoenix Police Sergeants and Lieutenant's Association opened the survey to 2,900 officers, sergeants and lieutenants.

More than 1,700 participated in the web-based survey conducted by WestGroup Research, hired by the unions. [Click here to read the full survey (PDF)]

The results included the following:

  • 93 percent were very or somewhat dissatisfied with the chief's job performance.
  • 80 percent said Garcia was an ineffective leader
  • 74 percent said the chief does not ensure discipline is equally applied
  • 69 percent said Garcia does not lead by example

Garcia talked about the survey results on Thursday and declared that he knows he's a very effective leader, who leads by example and is fair.

When asked how he accounted for the numbers that reflect just the opposite, Garcia said people have a hard time adjusting to change.

"The city of Phoenix made a choice to go outside of the department to hire a new police chief and that usually signifies one thing, that the city was looking for change. I understand the change aspect of it and how that is very challenging to people to accept change and move forward with it," said Garcia.
