9780131590861: Managing Police Organizations (7th Edition)

Now in its seventh edition, Managing Police Organizations sets the standard for police leadership and management by exploring the relationship between leadership, management, and results. Written for a broad audience, the book focuses on developing one’s character and one’s leadership competencies. Using case studies and structured learning exercises, it seeks to chip away at constricting operational levels and barriers within the organization itself and the community it serves.  This edition features a three-part format, two new chapters, and ideas and methods police managers can use to successfully lead their agencies toward quality and excellence of service.

From the Back Cover:

Now in its seventh edition, Managing Police Organizations sets the standard for police leadership and management, the organization of academic courses, professional development, and promotional exam preparation. The book is uniquely designed to inform, inspire, and engage the reader whether the reader is a student, a practitioner, or both. The main focus of the text is developing one’s character and one’s competency to lead, manage, and organize a police agency.

 

New to the seventh edition:

  • Two new chapters: Chapter 1, “Decisions,” and Chapter 15, “Performance”
  • A new organization dividing the book into three parts: “Leadership,” “Management,” and “Results”
  • New insights, advice, and strategies based on the author’s ongoing experience as a police management teacher and trainer

 

“I can easily envision an officer in training, new supervisor, and a seasoned police manager reading and utilizing this text. The author’s approach is right on target.”

 

–David Kotajarvi, Lakeshore Technical College
