CRJ 810 Police Leadership

This course will explore and develop a conceptual framework of modern police leadership. The emphasized focus is on the complexity of the leadership process in the law enforcement organization, from the perspective of the individual members (in their roles as leaders, peers, followers), through social and work groups to which organizational members belong and in which they work and perform. Concepts such as: organizational and individual developments, dimensions and dynamics of police groups and subsystems, communication and counseling skills, ethical considerations, and adaptation processes to the changing society, will be discussed and analyzed.
