Police Administration (9th Edition) – eBook PDF
Cordner’s Police Administration, 9th Edition, (PDF) examines police administration from multiple perspectives: a systems perspective (stressing the interrelatedness among units and organizations); a traditional, structural perspective (management functions, administrative principles, and the importance of written guidelines); a human behavioral viewpoint (the human element in organizations); and a strategic management perspective (communications and information systems, strategies and tactics, performance evaluation, and prevalent and promising approaches to increasing effectiveness of police agencies).
The inclusion of management functions and organizational principles is streamlined while presenting a stronger emphasis on diversity principles and on evolving police agencies as learning organizations. A concluding chapter includes contemporary issues, including community engagement, globalization, collaboration, racial profiling, cybercrime, mass media, terrorism, and homeland security. Case studies based on real-life events invite students to practice handling the conflicting circumstances, and Modern policing blog posts provide news and developments in the policing world.
