PARADOXES OF LEADERSHIP IN POLICE MANAGEMENT helps current police leaders, and would-be leaders, as they strive to effectively direct a group of unique and powerful individuals: police officers.. The work day of a police officer is replete with paradox, making the job of leading police difficult and potentially frustrating. This book provides real life examples based on a theoretical framework. PARADOXES OF LEADERSHIP IN POLICE MANAGEMENT discusses the police officer's experience including the multiple, conflicting, and sometimes vague nature of police functions and goals; the creation of mission statements; organizational structures; teaching communication skills to young officers; coaching and mentoring police officers; and the complicated job of assessing the job done by law enforcement. The book also deals with the development of police ethics, comparative accountability mechanisms, and alternative modes of discipline, expanding these discussions into a three-tiered view of police leadership (the roles of sergeant, middle manager, and chief). The book concludes with a practical, realistic list of ideas and ideals that can be used for taking action. Each chapter concludes with example scenarios, discussion questions, and additional reading suggestions.
