This study will examine three aspects of police administration policy: organizational structure; functions and duties of police officers; and planning and organizing including recruitment training, and public relations.
John Sullivan in Introduction to Police Science writes that the successful performance of police agencies in the execution of their duties and responsibilities depends on proper organization: It is true that any group of people who band together to achieve common goals must organize or fail. But good organization is especially critical to law enforcement work because of the split-second timing, the accuracy, the care, and the speed with which much police work must be accomplished. Indeed, the police organization must be fully equal to its demanding, difficult and often hazardous work (Sullivan, 1980, p. 183).
