Show Summary Details

Preview

Chief officers were asked about their leadership ‘style’ and how they perceived the nature of police leadership, as well as how they ‘sell’ their proposals for change and development. In this chapter, the experiential emphasis on police leadership is explored, as are the expected competences of chief officers, both on appointment and in appraisal of performance.

Keywords: leadership style; competences; appraisal; police leadership
