Abstract:

Theory and practice of police supervision are presented from a behavioral standpoint and guidelines are offered for their application. This book focuses on the growing importance of the inclusion of modern behavioral research findings in the theory and practice of police supervision. Conceiving the role of the police supervisor as that of controller, trainer, and shaper of human resources, the study examines the various dimensions of the supervisor's responsibilities and provides pragmatic guidelines for their fulfillment. A systems-oriented approach to modern organization theory is presented which views the police organization as highly dependent on its environment. Includes discussions of organizational communications -- the supervisor's vehicle for exerting control-and an examination of supervisory leadership in terms of mutual support, interaction facilitation, goal emphasis, work facilitation; and a study of the supervisor's role requirement for training personnel. These characterize the supervisor as a team leader with a basic responsibility for developing the human resources of the organization.
