Organizational Behavior and Management in Law Enforcement is an accessible guide to real-world police management. It 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.

The 4th Edition brings substantial content revisions and new learning objectives. It integrates new research into an organizational behavioral approach to police management, while demonstrating the relationship between research and its applications in the field.
