|Release Date||01 March 2020|
|Rating||4/5 from 21 reviews|
In a critical analysis of conventional understanding, leading authors Claire Davis and Marisa Silvestri present bold new conceptualisations of police leadership. Drawing on empirical research in criminology, sociology and leadership studies, they present a thoughtful critique of the nature and practice of leadership in contemporary policing. The book critically explores the identities of leaders and their positions within wider organisational structures and processes and provides a critique of contemporary reform to police professionalisation, training and education, equalities and diversity by situating these developments within wider historical, social and political context. Pointing towards future directions and a reimagining of leadership in the police, this is an accessible, stimulating and essential text for policing students and valuable reading for current leaders and those interested in policing, criminology and leadership.
