Using an interactive, three-part structure, this book covers all the latest supervisory concepts and practices—and emphasizes character, values and strengths-based leadership throughout. Organized around 15 core responsibilities, it tackles issues such as ethics, communications, training, evaluations, empowerment and problem-oriented policing— uniquely combining the human factor with the performance edge. New chapters on strengths-based leadership, emotions, and performance appear in this edition and exercises reinforce what’s required to lead and supervise today’s police force. Broken up into three parts, the updated content includes:

  • Part I–On Becoming a Leader focuses on core character traits and values such as ethics, strength-based leadership, vision, communications, emotions and team leadership.

  • Part II–On Becoming a Supervisor discusses police supervisory competencies such as time, vitality, issues, training and evaluation.

  • Part III–Getting Results includes discussion of empowerment, community and problem-oriented policing and performance.

This book is a perfect resource for professionals with a career in police supervision, human or organizational behavior, criminal justice, community relations, mediation, and/or ethics.
