This book provides the “how to’s” of police patrol, focusing on how officers on the front line perform their duties (covering both skills and techniques), meet day-to-day challenges, and manage the tasks and risks associated with modern police patrol. Drawing on theory, research, and the experience of numerous practitioners, it provides practical daily checklists and guidance for delivering primary police services: • Conducting mobile and foot patrols • Completing a preliminary investigation • Canvassing a neighborhood • Developing street contacts • Building and sustaining trust • Delivering death notifications, and more. It features interviews with frontline officers, as well as both police chiefs and supervisors to examine the role of police officers in the 21st century and their partnership with, and accountability to, the communities they serve. In addition, this book explores how modern policing has evolved by examining the research, innovation, tradition, and technology upon which it is based. It provides new perspectives and ideas as well as basic knowledge of daily practices, offering value to new and experienced police and security personnel alike; students in criminal justice, law and public safety; community leaders; and others involved in advancing police operations and community well-being.

To effectively resolve the law enforcement and public safety challenges of the twenty-first century, "all" police officers, regardless of rank or position, must possess leadership skills as well as an ethical orientation. All police officers are leaders whether they want to be or not. All officers must communicate well; motivate others; make decisions and resolve conflicts; and demonstrate the ability to plan, organize, implement and evaluate tactics, programs, and strategies while maintaining personal and professional integrity. These activities and abilities are the foundation for ethical leadership competence ...the essential ingredient to successful policing. "Leadership, Ethics, and Policing: Challenges for the Twenty-First Century" addresses and stresses the need for ethical leadership competence for all police officers. The book integrates theory and practice as it explores the principles of leadership as well as those associated with values, morality, and ethics, and their relationship to police work. Although the focus is on policing, the ethical leadership concepts presented can be applied to virtually any criminal justice or community-oriented government environment. Therefore, the book is appropriate for nonpolice as well as police personnel. It is essential reading for practitioners and students of public safety. The book is a critical ingredient in each step of leadership development for entry-level personnel as well as for seasoned individuals who are preparing for a promotional exam. Each chapter begins with a set of learning objectives. Key terms and concepts are highlighted in the text and listed for review at the end of each chapter. Discussion questions and scenario-based exercises are also included. Your one-stop shop for police training materials:

As we approach the 21st century, there is a discernable shift in policing, from an incident-driven perspective to a proactive problem solving stance often described as "community policing." In this volume a panel of 21 psychologists examine the changing directions in policing and how such changes impact on psychological service delivery and operational support to law enforcement agencies. The book describes existing and emerging means of providing psychological support to the law enforcement community in response to police needs to accommodate new technology, community-oriented problem solving technology, crime prevention, and sensitivity to community social changes. Senior psychologists who are sworn officers, federal agents and civilian employees of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies comprise the team of chapter authors. Their perspectives encompass their collective experience "in the trenches" and in law enforcement management and administrative support roles. They discuss traditional applications of psychology to police selection, training and promotion processes, and in trauma stress management and evaluation of fitness for duty. Concerns related to police diversity and police family issues are also addressed, as are unique aspects of police stress management. Additional chapters are dedicated to establishing psychological service functions that currently are less familiar to police agencies than they are to other government and private sector service recipients. These chapters are devoted to police psychologists as human resource professionals, as human factors experts in accommodating to new technology and to new legal requirements, as organizational behavioral experts, and as strategic planners. This text is recommended reading for two groups: *police and public safety administators whose work takes them--or should take them--into contact with police psychologists; *practicing and would-be police psychologists concerned with the emerging trends in the application of psychology to police and other public safety programs.
