Effective Police Supervision Study Guide, Sixth Edition, is designed as a complement to Effective Police Supervision, Sixth Edition, by Harry W. More and Larry S. Miller. It is not a substitute for the textbook, and students are required to read the book to fully understand the concepts of effective police supervision. The textbook is also needed to complete portions of this guide. The best strategy for students is to consult this Study Guide prior to reading each chapter of the textbook. Students can read the Learning Objectives and Key Terms before each chapter to help them focus on key material as they read the text. The question-and-answer key provided in this guide will also enable students to measure their progress in understanding the material.
