The purpose of this book is to provide the first-line leader with practical, time-proven guidance for making decisions that range from the seemingly mundane to the life-critical. The text emphasizes the importance of common sense applied to sound decision-making, and provides the first-line leader with the insight, experience, talents, and skills to meet specific challenges. The following topics are featured: why decision-making is important; assessing your people; employee grievances and fair decisions; setting a good example; making decisions concerning employee performance; disciplinary decision-making; troubled employees and compassionate decision-making; identifying high-risk behavior; keeping your officers alive; tactical decision-making; decision-making in critical incidents; handling media encounters; how to fix communication breakdowns; surviving the difficult boss and what your supervisor expects; surviving an organization's politics; making decisions when unsure of yourself; and making career plans. The embodiment of the text lies in its ability to involve the reader in tasks that must be accomplished following the use of lethal force by an officer, the leader's key duties and responsibilities to citizenry and his organization, responding effectively to high-risk, on the street scenarios, while simultaneously maintaining true professional calm and even-handedness. This book will be useful as a learning tool for those interested in preparing themselves for law enforcement supervisory or management positions, policymakers, and police academies.

Impressively well written and exceptionally well organized and presented, Leading Cops: Decision-Making for the Law Enforcement Leader will not only prove to be of immense and practical value to law enforcement personnel and policy makers, but be of pertinent and enduring interest to local activists seeking to improve the quality of their local police departments with respect to such issues as 'Black Lives Matter', endemic police brutality, and police/community relations. Leading Cops is very highly recommended for community, governmental, and academic library law enforcement instructional collections and supplemental studies reading lists. --Carl Logan/Logan's Bookshelf/ Reviewer's Bookwatch/March 2016
