Review quote

"I would most definitively use this book in a police management course of instruction. It covers the material thoroughly; the updated version is timely and relevant; it's versatile and flexible in its approach and is written in a scholarly and analytical style." - John Walsh, Assistant Director, Academy of Counter-Terrorist Education, Louisiana State University (Former Executive Director, Oklahoma Sheriffs' Association)"The text is comprehensive and covers topics that are critical to the success of a police organization. The specific strengths are the values, vision, ethics, and community and problem oriented policing chapters. While all of the chapters are important to the success of a police supervisor or manager, the fact all are together in the same text is of value and serves as an excellent reference and tool for the police manager." - Brian Wilson, Deputy Chief Federal Way, WA"I believe that the exercises and experiential learning that they promote makes this book superior to most text books which tend to drone endlessly (and dryly) about important topics .... I would definitely consider this book for use in one of my courses for all of the reasons already stated." - Steve Lewis, Senior Consultant California POST, Sacramento, CAshow more
