Leadership and management in police organizations

Matthew J. Giblin (Author)
Built on a foundation of nearly 1,200 references, Leadership and Management in Police Organizations shows students how organizational theory and behavior can be applied to improve the operations, leadership, and management of law enforcement. The text also emphasizes leadership and management as separate skills in successful police supervisors and executives, illustrating to students how the two skills can combine to improve individual and organizational efficacy in policing. Readers come away with a stronger understanding of why organizational decisions matter and the impact research can have on police departments
