Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Preface

Recognizing that the first-line supervisor plays an indispensable role in the enforcement of American law, and that a straightforward book dealing with the responsibilities of supervisors and the most effective methods of fulfilling these responsibilities was needed, the author wrote the first edition of Supervision of Police Personnel in 1970. Four subsequent editions have followed during the ensuing three decades. With the beginning of the new millennium, the author's brother, Marvin D. Iannone, has joined in the writing of this sixth edition.

During their long law enforcement careers—a combined total of 100 years—both authors realized (and have had this realization confirmed countless times) that certain tenets of the first-line supervisor remain inviolable and that one cannot supervise effectively without an appreciation of these tenets. These time-tested principles include the following:

  1. Although a supervisor is a manager, he must first think of himself as a leader. Indeed, one cannot be a leader without followers.
  2. A first-line supervisor is a part of those whom he leads, while at the same time being apart from them. In such a role, he must represent the rank and file to senior management and simultaneously represent senior management to the rank and file.
  3. When supervising, he must practice the Golden Rule.
  4. He must earn, not demand the respect of others.
  5. He must set the highest example.He must without exception be consistent and fair.
  6. His honor and professionalism must always be beyond reproach.

It is the authors' conviction that a supervisor, experienced or inexperienced, who applies the principles and techniques outlined in this book while using the foregoing tenets as an ever-present backdrop will be well on his way toward actualizing his greatest potential.

This edition has been updated to be consistent with changes in the law and the currently preferred practices of progressive police organizations.

The authors sincerely express their gratitude to all those professionals in law enforcement for their many contributions to the preparation of this book, and we are particularly grateful to all who have had such a profound influence on our professional and personal lives. We also thank the following reviewers: Alvin Berndt, Criminal Justice Institute; Michael Buerger, Northeastern University; Alan Mentzer, Truckee Meadows Community College; and Alan Marston, South Maine Technical College.

Our special thanks to Clara and Patricia for their never-ending support and patience.

2.0 out of 5 stars Iannone ranks #1 on list of police stressors. Jan. 25 2002
By JT
Format:Hardcover
Ugh! This book is awful. I also don't know anyone else who feels differently. It is required reading for Lt/Sgt. exams even though there are usually only a few questions related to the material. I think whoever writes the exams that way after requiring this book must be a sadist who hates cops. Or maybe is just concerned about insomnia from rotating shifts because this book can put you to sleep in a half a page. Who needs a doctor? Just read Iannone. I am sure there must be some very good factual or theoretical information in the book - otherwise it wouldn't be as well known as it is. (I sure hope so and its not simply that Iannone married the sister of some official who has sway over these things. Gotta love law enforcement.) Then again, there are also things in the book that are impractical at best. I can't tell you how to score high on the exam and it doesn't matter because a high score doesn't mean you will be a good supervisor and that is what is most important - will your cops follow you - happily? Read Iannone but start studying profiles in great leaders and look within your own department to those supervisors who hold the respect and confidence of the cops and just as you did while a rookie, cultivate these examples and merge your own style into them. Look to present leadership but don't fashion yourself as a clone - so much of the success of our work depends on our authenticity as people, try to be someone else and everyone will detect that immediately. #1 rule of success and safety - have an unwavering respect for yourself and unwavering belief in yourself. So, I think that Ianonne should grab a successful writer and let them form the concepts into sentences. Then we would have the best of him without the droning. But if they have to pay this person - what would the price go to then? Good luck on the test. Stay safe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good... But not that good Nov. 15 2002
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is yet another one in the annals and the pursuit of spending an inordinate of of money for promotion. It is definetely full of information. However, it is hard to read and seems to possess a never ending amount of run-on sentences. It is not black and white, as a promotional book should be.
The book is put together better than its predecessor and is somewhat easier to read. I would suggest purchasing the study guide that is available. It will more than prepare you for a test that includes this book as part of the reading list.
Good Luck and always remember where you came from, once you get promoted!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally made it July 12 2004
Format:Hardcover
Can't believe some of the comments on this book. This book was great but you must get the HLC Study Guide for it. I took the Sergeant's test 3 times before I score well (93)and got my stripes. The study guide made all the difference. It puts all the material in the book into your memory banks so it all makes sense at test time. Do yourself a favor, and get the study guide to go with this book.(I'am currently re-reading this book and guide for the Lieutenants test in the morning). GOOD LUCK
