For all college courses in police administration or organizational behavior, and as a reference for police managers or officers preparing for promotional exams.

This textprovides a clear, concise, realistic, and up-to-date blueprint for successful police management. Drawing on decades of experience as practitioners, consultants, trainers and researchers, the authors fully reflect current theory and practice, while accurately capturing the “feel” of real-world law enforcement management. They focus on organizational behavior to promote a deeper understanding of both the police organization as a whole, as well as key interactions among officers, managers, and the community. This edition integrates the latest research, and presents all-new chapters on performance-based management and organizational development. It offers expanded coverage of leadership, team-building, stress management, and many other topics; as well as 39 new cases.
