Supervision of Police Personnel is the oft-cited “bible of police supervision”. Doubling as prep for promotional exams, this longtime bestseller addresses the essential knowledge, skills and characteristics of the professional law enforcement supervisor and manager. It examines key supervisory responsibilities, as well as best practices for handling citizen complaints, problem employees, and tactical deployment of field forces in critical situations.

The 10th Edition examines complex management challenges, such as supervising a diverse workforce, evaluating fitness for duty, and responding to active shooters. This edition has updated accreditation information and a new dictionary of terms specific to supervising police personnel.
