In The Blue Continuum, Robert W. McNeilly details his inspiring career as one of the nation’s longest serving metropolitan police chiefs.

Pioneering Solutions in Law Enforcement Management

Chief McNeilly headed the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police from 1996 until 2006. He is recognized for leading Pittsburgh into compliance with the first federal civil-rights “pattern or practice” consent decree in U.S. history. Among his successful tactics: a sweeping accountability-and-training program, which included an innovative early-intervention system for troubled officers that has been called “the gold standard in policing.”

His experience in managing police departments and officers under difficult conditions required smart and effective decision making. At the same time, his dedication to honesty and his drive to do what was right made his work even more challenging.

The Blue Continuum points out that not all police are created equal, and addresses what needs to be corrected to improve law enforcement organizations. It is a guide for police chiefs and city officials who face critical decisions in managing similar situations in today’s social and political climate.

Since 2013, as a partner in The McNeilly Group, LLC, Robert McNeilly has been a federally appointed monitor of the New Orleans Police Department. In that capacity, he oversees NOPD compliance with a consent decree between the City of New Orleans and the U.S. Department of Justice.

Of Special Interest to Pittsburgh Readers

For Pittsburghers, The Blue Continuum will be a gripping and informative read. Born in Pittsburgh’s Mt. Washington neighborhood, and a former U.S. Marine, Chief McNeilly rose to the top of the city’s Bureau of Police on the basis of clear insights and solid integrity. Sworn in as a Pittsburgh police officer in 1977, he served in patrol and plainclothes assignments, and as a sergeant, a lieutenant, and a commander before his promotion to chief. He held that position until his retirement in 2006.
