Abstract: Trainers begin by taking participants through a management matrix; what it means to be a manager, the obstacles to good management, and the necessary ingredients to become a high performing manager. Students complete a high performance self-assessment instrument which evaluates the individual, his/her unit or command, and the department on dimensions and in relation to four frames of reference: reactive, responsive, proactive and high performing. Management issues which surround the selection of drug enforcement programs are briefly identified, followed by participant discussion of experiences and perceptions of the middle manager and the chief of police. Primary issues and obstacles in planning and implementing effective drug enforcement programs are discussed. The training program is purposely designed first as theoretical, and second as operational, so as to make the necessary transition into practical applications. In the second half of training, the more practical applications are emphasized and high performance concepts are addressed regarding current developments in community-oriented, neighborhood-oriented, and problem-oriented policing.
