In this era of ever more complex policing issues and the changing nature of policing itself, senior police officers face a never-ending challenge to keep up not only with the latest reforms, but also with the latest research. Police Leadership: Rising to the Top looks at policing from the dual perspectives of academics and senior police practitioners, and creates a conversation between them about the issues, reforms, and research. It provides authoritative surveys of fields such as leadership, community engagement, change management, utilising policing research, and multi-agency working. Each leadership issue is allocated a chapter, with academic contributors presenting key ideas and concepts in their area of expertise, identifying leading contributions and research studies, and offering concise reviews of some of the most important literature in policing scholarship. This academic knowledge is juxtaposed with the views of senior police practitioners, who provide their own local knowledge and stories, reflecting on their achievements and challenges in leadership roles. Taken together, these discussions build bridges between the two worlds by encouraging 'shared reflections' that consider the importance of theory and practice for future leaders.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Jenny Fleming's Police Leadership: Rising to the Top offers a comprehensive guide to understanding the structures, research methods, and challenges of police leadership. This edited book is a welcome contribution to this topic as it is the only published book to present a tailored discussion around strategic and extensive police leadership issues by taking into consideration and presenting both academic knowledge and views-'local knowledge'as presented by senior police practitioners. * Vaitsa Giannouli, Policing: A Journal of Policy and Practice *
