For courses in police administration or organizational behavior, and as a reference for police managers or officers preparing for promotional exams.

An accessible guide to real-world police management
Organizational Behavior and Management in Law Enforcement provides a clear, concise blueprint for successful police administration and management. Drawing on decades of experience as practitioners, trainers, and researchers, the authors focus on organizational behavior as a means of understanding both the complexity of the criminal justice system and interactions between officers and managers as they work to resolve community problems. With substantial content revisions and new learning objectives, the 4th edition integrates new research into an organizational behavioral approach to police management and demonstrates the relationship between research and its applications in the field.
