Overview

Built on the authors' decades of experience in law enforcement, training, and teaching, Police Administration: Structures, Processes, and Behaviors presents the complex procedures, politics, and human relations issues confronting today's police supervisors and administrators. Scrupulously devoted to providing a contemporary account, the authors make a strong yet balanced case addressing issues that have given rise to significant changes in policing, including, in this 10th edition, the COVID-19 pandemic and social unrest aimed at police officers' use of deadly force.
