Historically, we have known little about the heads of police in Europe, but over the course of two years of careful research, Bryn Caless and Steve Tong worked to remedy this gap. Caless and Tong here draw on unprecedented access to those at the top of European police forces to obtain detailed comments from more than one hundred strategic police leaders in twenty-two countries. This book presents for the first time information about how these leaders are selected for high office, how they are held accountable, and how they view current and future challenges in policing. Endorsed by the director of CEPOL, the European Police College, the head of the International Division of Bramshill National Police College, UK, as well as Richard Wainright, the director of Europol, Leading Policing in Europe offers timely and unparalleled insight into the little-known elite of the law-enforcement world.

Review Quotes
Maurice Punch, London School of Economics and Political Science
“An original contribution, coming at a watershed in European policing (with centralisation, narrowing of mandate, changes in recruitment and governance, and austerity), which provides valuable material and fresh insights in an under-researched area.”
Ferenc Bánfi, director of CEPOL/European Police College, Hungary
“Providing insights into the professional life of top police leaders, this book makes for interesting reading and details the lessons to be learned as well as encouraging readers to think about leadership as both an art and a science.”
