Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anderson, who directs his own consulting firm, has been joined by several other security and law enforcement specialists to design a comprehensive leadership development model for the education of all public safety professionals (in corrections, fire, customs, security, and policing). This book provides a framework for developing leadership skills by providing the tools for assessing training requirements, using an integrated approach of theory and knowledge to focus on needed skills and adapt to the individual's needs, and preparing officers to become trainers themselves.

Synopsis:

Every Officer is a Leader: Transforming Leadership in Police, Justice, and Public Safety, authored by leadership expert Terry Anderson and several well known leaders in the law enforcement and criminal justice profession, responds to the need for a comprehensive leadership development model for the education and training of police, justice and public safety supervisors, managers and front line officers. He examines how leadership development has a profound impact on the morale and performance of individual officers, teams, and organizations, illustrating in depth and detail how police and other justice and public safety leaders (in corrections, fire, customs, immigration, security, courts, etc.) can implement the Transforming Leadership process, skills, and principles.

The recent focus (during the past 10 years) on community policing initiatives has made competency based leadership skills training essential for front line officers. The author's innovative contribution is a focus on the necessity to build a leadership organization before - and to an extent, while - you move ahead into building a learning organization that is responsive to community and internal organizational needs. The personal, team, and organization development skills discussed in this book are necessary pre-requisites to successful implementation of any neighborhood or community policing initiatives.

Every Officer is a Leader: Transforming Leadership in Police, Justice, and Public Safety provides a model for integrating other models into a holistic leadership development framework. It furnishes a map for developing critical leadership skills with self-assessment, includes the developmental aspects of leadership expert Terry Anderson's previous book on Transforming Leadership, and applies them to law enforcement and criminal justice. Anderson and his contributing authors add clarity, perspective, and examples to show how individual leaders can develop themselves, and one another, into high-performance team leaders and officers who motivate others to respond to issues that affect the morale, health, and safety of the communities in which they serve. This new focus adds a perspective on security issues that affect police, justice and public safety organizations.
