This reference is a major component of the New Police Chief Mentoring Project (in conjunction with the Smaller Law Enforcement Agency Technical Assistance Program) and is designed with the newer chief in mind. The Police Chiefs Desk Reference (PCDR) contains a wealth of resources to assist chiefs in their role as a police executive. The PCDR also helps executives connect to their state associations though state specific resource supplements.
The PCDR 2nd Edition is now available. Mentoring Project participants receive the PCDR 2nd Edition as a complimentary resource. To see if you are eligible to participate in the Mentoring Project, visit the New Police Chief Mentoring Project. The 2nd Edition is also available through McGraw-Hill Learning Solutions at the links below:
The PCDR is designed to be a living document, one that allows for the insertion of new products, including a state specific resource supplement. The New Police Chief Mentoring Project is collaborating with state chief's associations from around the country to add new and update existing state resource supplements. These supplements are available on this website as well as the state association's website and can be downloaded and added to the PCDR binder.
Keep watching this site for the availability and/or update of your state's resource supplement.
Law enforcement leaders from around the country who share a desire to pass along their knowledge and experience with their peers contributed many of the writings. It is a compilation of over eight years of effort on behalf on the Smaller Police Department Technical Assistance Program supported by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Department of Justice.
