This text examines police administration in terms of the police role, police leadership and management, and specific police operations. Chapters on the police explain the origins of the concept and practice of policing, describe the early years of policing in the United States, and discuss police reforms of recent years. They also discuss problems in setting police priorities, and distinguishing the police from other occupations, police work as coercion, the noncoercive work of the police, police accountability, political influences on policing, sources of confusion about police authority, and police relationships with local government and the media. The chapters on police leadership and administration focus on the police chief executive as leader; theory, practice, and strategies related to the police chief's role as administrator; theories of organization and management; and systems of organizational management. They also focus on types of police research, police resistance to behavioral research, the contributions of behavioral research to policing, the police planning process, staffing and organizing the planning function, types of plans, and the impact of computer technology on planning. Further chapters examine financial management and budgeting, police personnel hiring and entry-level training, human resource management, and productivity and police performance measurement. Additional chapters consider police discipline, positive discipline and punishment, quality assurance and inspections, police misconduct and integrity control, and police professional standards and accountability. The chapters on specific police operations detail the patrol, traffic, and special operations of uniformed police, as well as crime prevention and criminal investigation
