Police Leadership in Australasia


This is a valuable contribution to the growing literature on policing in Australasia. It provides valuable insights into the challenges currently faced and likely to be faced, by police and law enforcement leaders. The book, through the inclusion of chapters by some of the most vocal critics of policing, provides a balanced and objective account of where policing is today and where it must be in the future.

This book, written by a number of prominent police and criminal justice leaders, is a positive and tangible step towards the professionalism of policing.
