Outstanding first-line supervisors are essential to the success of any law enforcement agency, yet many officers lack the supervision training necessary to excel. Effective Police Supervision immerses readers in the group behaviors and organizational dynamics supervisors must master in order to lead their teams and to help create an effective police department. Combining behavioral theory and updated case studies, this core text, now in its eighth edition, is a vital tool for all college students pursuing criminal justice courses on supervisory practices, as well as police officers preparing for promotional exams.

I love this text because it is so robust in its case studies, and allows for students to recognize that they need to be true to themselves when determining a management style if they want to be successful. To many students, the idea of creating a unique management style that is in sync with their personalities is a new idea. This text allows us to explore [that idea] in depth. -Michael Ramon, Washington State University Effective Police Supervision will make excellent outside study material for police promotional examinations. It takes a positive and practical approach, which should be attractive to potential promotional candidates. -Howard Williams, Texas State University
