Paradoxes of Leadership in Police Management

PARADOXES OF LEADERSHIP IN POLICE MANAGEMENT helps current police leaders, and would-be leaders, as they strive to effectively direct a group of unique and powerful individuals: police officers.. The work day of a police officer is replete with paradox, making the job of leading police difficult and potentially frustrating. This book provides real life examples based on a theoretical framework. PARADOXES OF LEADERSHIP IN POLICE MANAGEMENT discusses the police officer's experience including the multiple, conflicting, and sometimes vague nature of police functions and goals; the creation of mission statements; organizational structures; teaching communication skills to young officers; coaching and mentoring police officers; and the complicated job of assessing the job done by law enforcement. The book also deals with the development of police ethics, comparative accountability mechanisms, and alternative modes of discipline, expanding these discussions into a three-tiered view of police leadership (the roles of sergeant, middle manager, and chief). The book concludes with a practical, realistic list of ideas and ideals that can be used for taking action. Each chapter concludes with example scenarios, discussion questions, and additional reading suggestions.

The process of controlling criminal investigations is a complex matter, yet it has frequently been minimized or neglected in police management publications. But knowing how to properly plan for an event, make resource agreements with other participants in the investigation, and implement a coordinating system within the agency is critical to proper case control in a department. Now in its second edition, Managing and Coordinating Major Criminal Investigations details a methodology that is adaptable to any existing record or control system. This new edition features an expanded outline format, more detailed instructions, and updated case systems. It also reflects the introduction of new technology developed since the benchmark first edition. Designed so that users can determine the necessary requirements to meet their individual needs, the book aids in the thinking and direction required to accomplish this task. Decisionmakers in small and large agencies can tailor the system to their specifications, retaining flexibility to decide the applications, degree of implementation, and usage. Filled with concrete, specific guidelines and time-tested wisdom from a law enforcement veteran, this book provides police supervisors with the essential tools needed to improve or develop a systemic approach to the control of major investigations. More importantly, it helps to create the necessary mindsets required in supervisors to manage any major crime effectively.
