For courses in Police Supervision.

Using an interactive, three-part structure, this book covers all the latest supervisory concepts and practices–and emphasizes character, values and strengths-based leadership throughout. Organized around 15 core responsibilities, it tackles issues such as ethics, communications, training, evaluations, empowerment and problem-oriented policing– uniquely combining the human factor with the performance edge. New chapters on strengths-based leadership, emotions, and performance appear in this edition and exercises reinforce what’s required to lead and supervise today’s police force.
