Reviews - What do customers think about What Every Chief Executive Should Know?

Measuring Police Performance   May 24, 2007
Jon Shane's book is a timely contribution to the police administration and performance measurement literature. It is thoughtfully presented in a logical and readily understandable fashion, which may very well make these fundamental performance measurement and statistical tools available to administrators throughout the nation.

Admittedly, a technical book, with the preponderance of the text devoted to detailed explanations of the tools and techniques outlined. The book is subdivided into three sections - Performance Measurement, Statistics and Data Analysis and Management and Efficiency - Shane takes the reader through the maze of statistical tools and techniques that can be used by a Chief Executive to plan and then navigate the agency's progress. The book includes a CD that contains formatted spreadsheets, which with minimal work, can be tailored to the direct benefit of the reader.

This is not light recreational reading. Rather this book contains information that may yield direct and substantive benefits to the reader for some years to come. This book does deliver on the title; this volume provides the information that every Chief Executive should know. The book would be an appropriate text for graduate criminal justice/police administration courses, as well as a valuable addition to practitioners' bookshelves.

Buy this book, but more importantly put this information to use.
