Annotation: Intended for the staff of police departments, the handbook supplements the other materials of the Managing Patrol Operations (MPO) training workshops, focusing on the management of the patrol function in municipal police departments.
Abstract: The handbook introduces the purpose, activities, rationale, development, and logic of the MPO training program. One chapter offers suggestions for preparing for the delivery of the program in local departments, while another presents instructions and guidelines to be followed in the actual delivery. For each of the 15 workshop sessions, the handbook presents a summary explanation of objectives, time requirements, audiovisual equipment needs, MPO resource package references, methods of presentation, room arrangements, sequence of session activities, and a presentation outline for use by the instructor. An appendix lists various diagrams of how space used in the training is to be arranged. Sample evaluation forms, which can be used at the conclusion of each training day, are provided to assess the effectiveness of the event. The concluding portion contains a detailed description of the Criminal Justice Research Utilization Program and a description of current efforts to test, in three police departments, the MPO program as a management improvement system.
