"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
