Summary

The indispensible guide for leading police personnel to breakthrough performance. Now in its eighth 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 character and leadership competencies. Using case studies and structured learning exercises, it seeks to break down constricting operational levels and barriers within police organizations and the communities they serve. The text follows a logical three-part organization and each chapter examines a key challenge for police managers and presents practical ideas and methods police managers can use to successfully lead their agencies toward quality and excellence of service.
