Good information and easy to read.

Comprehensive, topical, and real world in flavor, the book is an ideal choice for acadmic courses in police supervision or management and is an invaluable study tool for police officers preparing for promotional examinations. Three new chapters: Chapter 11 Unions and Labor Relations. I rented this book to use it for a police supervision course for my criminal justice degree. So far it has been easy to read and understand. I like the book because there's a lot of "real world" examples scattered throughout the book that makes it interesting to read. Good information and easy to read.

I use this book to write test questions for Police Lieutenant candidates.

I have a degree in Finance and I must say that having taken numerous management classes, this book definitely covers most aspects of management we discussed in class. It is an easy read, even for anyone that is just interested in learning more about how our Community Policing system is structured. In addition, Sources are cited throughout the text.

This book is currently being used for the Lt's promotional exam in Houston, Texas. As promotional books, it is pretty useful. The text covers all of the topics that a supervisor/ manager should know (Management Styles/Leadership Theory/Communications, etc..) without going into too much depth as some texts do. There is enough material to make it challenging, but what is important to me is that after the test is over, there still is worth to this book. They list resources, ideas, and plans that can be converted to your departments use. If your studying, good luck. If you just want to pick up some ideas on the latest in police management theory, this is still a good book to study!

I do have one question for the authors if they ever read their reviews. Page 207... Sources of Organizational Stress... what happened to sources three and four???? I am hoping it is an editing error, cuz while I can stretch officers'views to fit #3, I cannot find #4 to save my life (or test score)... :)
