Duties & Responsibilities of a Police Supervisor

I. Overview

Police officers have a demanding and difficult job today. Assigned to protect resources and serve citizens, the responsibility carries prestige and danger at the same time. A police supervisor has the responsibility of ensuring that fellow police officers conduct duties in the best interests of citizens. They also must ensure their officers are adhering to organizational policies. Additionally, they must communicate departmental procedures, and ensure officers under their command are properly trained in public safety. A police supervisor must always have the concerns of fellow officers as a top priority while performing his/her duties.

A. Assign Duties

Police supervisors are responsible for assigning job duties to officers under their command. The duties can be administrative duties, patrol duties, community relations program duties, or special security duties such as designation to a SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) team. Police supervisors can also reassign personnel to lateral duties, which depends on the needs of the department or precinct. An example of a lateral duty is an officer normally assigned to administration, who is also assigned the lateral duty of training officer.

B. Review Daily Logs and Reports

Daily logs and reports document interactions between other police units, precincts, incident reports and the general public. Police supervisors have the responsibility to view these logs, which are automated, and highlight information that can assist in developing an investigation, ensuring a crime is deterred, or addressing concerns of a citizen concerning public safety. The police supervisor also has the authority to determine if logs can be used in an investigation, or reviewed by other departments that have a need for information generated in report format.

C. Department or Precinct Liaison Duties

Police supervisors at the mid-management level are appointed by the commanding officer of the police department or precinct. Supervisory functions at the mid-management level include staffing duties, management of fixed assets and precinct resources (information systems) and employee development programs. Supervisors at this level also voice concerns of officers regarding procedures pertaining to their duties and responsibilities.

D. Internal Affairs Duties

Police supervisors can be assigned the duties of internal affairs officer. This is an audit position in the department or precinct, which audits every function for compliance to standard operating procedures. If an incident involving the conduct of an officer surfaces, the police supervisor with extra duty as an internal affairs officer must collect data regarding the incident and conduct interviews with the officer or parties that were involved. Information gathered is given to an internal affairs board for further review.
