‘This is an important and timely book, not only because of the depth and breadth of the coverage of the issues but because it addresses the practical challenge of leadership at all levels… When the challenges come… an understanding of the underpinning principles and conflicting values of policing is vital for organizational survival’: John Grieve QPM (from the Foreword)
Robert Adlam was Reader in the National Police Leadership Faculty at Bramshill and Peter Villiers Head of Human Rights. Through their work at the Police Staff College and beyond, they gained a unique insight into the challenges and demands of police leadership and from the experience and beliefs of an extensive range of experts, including the contributors to this volume. They have been involved in leadership development programmes for senior officers from police forces in the United Kingdom and abroad, including nations seeking to join the European Community. This book is based on that work.
