Abstract : Police first line supervisors are the critical element in providing organizational climates that reduce line officer stress, as well as ensuring increased morale, motivation, and productivity in the department. However, these same supervisors are rarely trained in leadership philosophy or technique due to general training course unavailability and internal bureaucratic inertia. Further research into this subset of police leadership is definitely warranted. (EMK)
