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.
