Overview

POLICE ADMINISTRATION, 3rd edition, will give criminal justice students and practitioners the concrete knowledge to ascend through the ranks to become a chief, sheriff or other high ranking law enforcement official. "On the Job" boxes highlight insights by working police administration professionals. Key issues such as conflict resolution, human resources, budgeting and collective bargaining become clear with the use of sample forms and documents used by police organizations from around the country. Homeland security and terrorism, topics that have recently come to the forefront of police administration, are also covered.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The strength of the textbook is that it takes real-world police administration, and brings it into the classroom. …. I would not recommend any other textbook other than "Police Administration"… to any professor instructing a police administration course. "Police Administration" is an excellent resource for police administrators in the field, from rural to metropolitan police organizations. … I highly recommend this textbook to any criminal justice professional and [to] law enforcement training academies."Stephen Kappeler, Eastern Kentucky University, Corbin, KY

"The text is very comprehensive and… provides a great overview of the different areas of a police administration."Robert J. Diemer, Saint Leo University, Saint Leo, FL
