Summary

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: www.policetrainingstore.com
