    Challenging the Law Enforcement Organization: Proactive Leadership Strategies is a soft cover book that is a summary of the many presentations of Jack Enter, Ph.D. For those of you that are not acquainted with this pioneer in the field of police leadership, Jack Enter started his law enforcement career in 1972. He worked his way through the ranks, serving in such positions as narcotics officer and detective, and subsequently became the administrator of a law enforcement agency in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. You should read his book because police executives all over the world consult with him. From the website “Among the topics discussed are chapters on the impact of living and policing an unskilled and violent society, why law enforcement managers fail to successfully impact their agencies, and chapters on self-management, communication, motivation, and being more effective in our personal lives. Many of these latter “strategy” chapters have examples of proactive techniques used by law enforcement managers as well as “action items” to apply the principles examined in each chapter.”
    Regardless of your experience, from a one-year rookie to a 30-year supervisor, Jack Enter’s book should be at the top of your reading list. The reader will immediately recognize the various traits and behavior of police officers and supervisors. I purchased three from - one for my personal use, one for my son, an 11-year police veteran, and one for my officers. You will not be disappointed!

    I just read this for a recent promotional process in my agency. Great book it really hits on the leaders within an organization and you can put faces to the leaders that are talked about in this book to the people that you work with.
