Good police officers are often promoted into supervisory positions with little or no training for what makes a good manager. Effective Police Supervision provides readers with an understanding of the group behaviors and organizational dynamics necessary to understand the fundamentals of police administration. The Effective Police Supervision Study Guide, which includes quizzes and other study tools, gives students, as well as professionals training for promotional exams, a way to review the material and be fully prepared for examinations and the world of police supervision.

This new edition, like the new edition of the textbook it accompanies, includes information on the following topics: police accountability, police involvement with news media, dealing with social media, updates on legal considerations, and avoiding scandals.
