Intended for the staff of police departments, the handbook supplements the other materials of the Managing Patrol Operations (MPO) training workshops, focusing on the management of the patrol function in municipal police departments. The handbook introduces the purpose, activities, rationale, development, and logic of the MPO training program. One chapter offers suggestions for preparing for the delivery of the program in local departments, while another presents instructions and guidelines to be followed in the actual delivery. For each of the 15 workshop sessions, the handbook presents a summary explanation of objectives, time requirements, audiovisual equipment needs, MPO resource package references, methods of presentation, room arrangements, sequence of session activities, and a presentation outline for use by the instructor. An appendix lists various diagrams of how space used in the training is to be arranged. Sample evaluation forms, which can be used at the conclusion of each training day, are provided to assess the effectiveness of the event. The concluding portion contains a detailed description of the Criminal Justice Research Utilization Program and a description of current efforts to test, in three police departments, the MPO program as a management improvement system.

This practical manual, designed for use in a workshop for police supervisors, covers patrol management theory, the manager's role, resource allocation, crime analysis, and patrol strategies. The manual contains a detailed analysis and bibliography of each of the topics discussed in the workshop participant's handbook. Patrol operations differ from many other management problems because of the unpredictable nature of crime and the shifting nature of calls for service. The political and community pressures affecting a police patrol manager are discussed. An appendix to this section provides an outlined guide for program implementation planning. The portion on resource allocation discusses equal shift staffing, identifying workload demands, equal geographic coverage, proportional need coverage, and developing a model to identify basic calls for service.
This book provides the “how to’s” of police patrol, focusing on how officers on the front line perform their duties (covering both skills and techniques), meet day-to-day challenges, and manage the tasks and risks associated with modern police patrol. Drawing on theory, research, and the experience of numerous practitioners, it provides practical daily checklists and guidance for delivering primary police services: • Conducting mobile and foot patrols • Completing a preliminary investigation • Canvassing a neighborhood • Developing street contacts • Building and sustaining trust • Delivering death notifications, and more. It features interviews with frontline officers, as well as both police chiefs and supervisors to examine the role of police officers in the 21st century and their partnership with, and accountability to, the communities they serve. In addition, this book explores how modern policing has evolved by examining the research, innovation, tradition, and technology upon which it is based. It provides new perspectives and ideas as well as basic knowledge of daily practices, offering value to new and experienced police and security personnel alike; students in criminal justice, law and public safety; community leaders; and others involved in advancing police operations and community well-being.
