For courses in Police Administration/Management.Based upon the authors' extensive experience in teaching, policing, and management, this introduction to management in the day-to-day rigors of a police department stresses that management is only effective if it is based upon a combination of both theory and practice. Proactive rather than reactive in approach, it shows how successful police managers anticipate events through planning, use police personnel and resources effectively, and deliver a whole range of police services to the community.
