This text examines police administration from multiple
perspectives: a systems perspective (emphasizing the
interrelatedness among units and organizations); a traditional,
structural perspective (administrative principles, management
functions, and the importance of written guidelines); a human
behavioral perspective (the human element in organizations); and a
strategic management perspective (communications and information
systems, performance evaluation, strategies and tactics, and
prevailing and promising approaches to increasing effectiveness of
police agencies). Coverage of management functions and
organizational principles is streamlined while providing a stronger
emphasis on diversity principles and on developing police agencies
as learning organizations. A concluding chapter covers contemporary
issues, including community engagement, collaboration,
globalization, racial profiling, mass media, cyber crime, terrorism
and homeland security.
