About the Author
Ronald Lynch is one of the pioneers in encouraging the modern breed of educated, self-directed police officers. His book has been a staple of classrooms and exam preparation materials for decades.
Scott R. Lynch began his career in law enforcement in 1988 as a patrol deputy in the Orange County Sheriff’s office. He rose steadily through the ranks and currently serves as their staff director. He earned an MS in Criminal Justice from the University of Central Florida in 1991. His specializations include event security, private-sector liaison work, school safety, and critical incident management.
This book was used for a promotional exam. I have read many books in college and for promotional exams. I, without any doubt, have decided that this is my all time favorite. The book has twenty chapters but each is written in a short, concise, and to the point manner. One does not fall asleep while reading nor does one choose to be beaten with a steel pole as opposed to continuing to read another never ending chapter. The chapters are “short, sweet, and to the point”.
This book is filled with information any new corporal, sergeant, or junior lieutenant needs to know. I have been a supervisor for many years and a manager even longer. Any aspiring supervisor can use all of the information in this book. I normally return the books after studying them, thanks to the Amazon “book buy back” program (which I highly recommend). I will be keeping this book in my office.
Whether you are studying for a promotional exam or simply wondering what makes the police sub-culture tick; this is a book that contains the answers.
