PSC 300 Police Management and Administration in the U.S.

3 hours 

The purpose of this course is to expose students to the newest theories of management in U.S. policing and to critically examine how they might or might not relate to the real world.  An in-depth examination of several theories, from the earliest classical explanations to contemporary interpretations, will be reviewed and critiqued.  Specific attention will be paid to the propositions, assumptions, empirical validity and, most importantly, the efficacy in real world situations that these theories of management promise when used in police agencies in the United States.
