Police Administration, 9th Ed.

By Gary W. Cordner

Police Administration, 9th edition, by Gary W. Cordner, examines police administration from multiple perspectives: a systems perspective (emphasizing the interrelatedness among units and organizations); a traditional, structural perspective (administrative principles, management functions, and the importance of written guidelines); a human behavioral perspective (the human element in organizations); and a strategic management perspective (communications and information systems, performance evaluation, strategies and tactics, and prevailing and promising approaches to increasing effectiveness of police agencies).

The student site contains helpful interactive questions and suggested answers connected to the case studies that appear in the textbook.

The password-protected instructor site provides helpful instructor’s guides that include chapter summaries and objectives, key terms, critical thinking questions, and classroom discussion points and exercises; a PowerPoint presentation deck for each chapter for use in the classroom; and a test bank containing multiple-choice and true/false questions.
