Based upon the authors' extensive experience in policing, and management, this introduction to 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. Using a proactive rather than a reactive approach, it stresses that police managers anticipate events through planning, use police personnel and resources effectively, and deliver a whole range of police services to the community. KEY TOPICS: This comprehensive book covers police culture, police organizations, operating principles, proactive police leadership, communication and information management, 21st century technology, community policing, basic line functions, administrative functions, human resource management, training policies, proactive planning, collective bargaining, and the future of proactive police management. MARKET: A useful reference for police managers and others in law enforcement.
