Summary
The strategies and techniques in this book will help make managing the investigative unit a rewarding experience. Many of these techniques and strategies were learned through trial and error. It begins with a look at the various elements of the investigative process. Organization of the investigative unit, whether it is a general assignment or highly specialized unit, is discussed as well as how to determine proper allocation of resources. Selection of investigative personnel is discussed at length, and selection strategies and a structured selection process are outlined very clearly. Methods of developing new investigators as well as mechanisms to train patrol personnel for potential assignment to investigations are also covered. The unique aspects of supervising investigative personnel are also examined. Administrative considerations, such as managing confidential source programs and case management techniques, are then examined in detail. The reader will also find many useful forms in which to custom design their own program. Supervision of undercover personnel and raid and arrest planning are among the most dangerous aspects of the investigative manager's position, and both of these areas are discussed at length. The final sections of the book examine performance evaluation of investigative personnel, which differs greatly from the evaluation of patrol personnel. The evaluation process can be custom designed for maximum effectiveness. Investigative marginal performers are then examined, and some useful techniques for managing these individuals are provided. The book will be useful for patrol officers or detectives who are interested in preparing themselves for supervisory or management positions. Those persons already in these positions will also find the book very useful
