This is a comprehensive, up-to-date introduction to police administration for courses in police administration and for officers preparing for sergeant's exam.

Practical applications and case studies, usually from specific departments, support the theoretical concepts.

Review:

"The strength of the textbook is that it takes real-world police administration, and brings it into the classroom. .... I would not recommend any other textbook other than "Police Administration"... to any professor instructing a police administration course. "Police Administration" is an excellent resource for police administrators in the field, from rural to metropolitan police organizations. ... I highly recommend this textbook to any criminal justice professional and [to] law enforcement training academies."Stephen Kappeler, Eastern Kentucky University, Corbin, KY

"The text is very comprehensive and... provides a great overview of the different areas of a police administration."Robert J. Diemer, Saint Leo University, Saint Leo, FL
