The contemporary legislation regulating law enforcement activity requires to increase the effectiveness of organizational and management activity of the heads of police departments. This forces to search for new approaches, which should satisfy the academic and legal requirements. The purposes of this article include 1) the development of concepts of model management activity in police departments, 2) the consideration of its specific features, as well as 3) the development of suggestions on perfecting this activity. This work suggests a multidisciplinary approach to the subject of research that is located at the intersection of the law and management theory.
This paper considers different stages of organizational and management work on the operating control of police departments (planning, organization, motivation, and control). It distinguishes legal and organizational forms of this activity and suggests some methods of management activity in the police departments.
Organizational and management work on the operating control of police departments is a set of actions of the chief or management administrators in relation to subordinate departments or staff. This work includes goal setting, collecting and processing information, as well as preparing, adopting, and implementing management decisions. The main objective is to ensure the best function of police departments throughout lines of action and achievement of the goals which are set by the Federal Act “On the Police”.
The specificity of the model of organizational and management work on the operating control of police departments is fuelled by its nature as law enforcement. The main feature of this control is the predominance of administrative methods in its implementation.
The contemporary legislation does not give a complete image of the administrative-legal status of the chief of police. In order to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of organization of management activity of police departments, the authors propose 1) to consolidate administrative and legal status of the chief of police in a single legal act, as well as 2) to define his powers, duties and responsibilities.
