Management and Supervision in Law Enforcement
All Police departments are tasked with the responsibility of ensuring that law and order is maintained (Miller & Frank, 1999). The Chief of Police for the South Podunk Municipal Police Department is no exception. The major task among other issues is to take a number of progressive steps about addressing the security needs of the residents within Podunk Municipality. While the chief and the department are empowered with the authority to ensure maximum security and order within their limits, they are also expected to maintain and uphold high ethical and professional standards free of corruption and other vices of workmanship.
