"I found Policing at the Top a wonderful, accessible, very interesting, and timely read. Although it is about the British police it has the capacity to significantly benefit those interested in police and policing in other contexts. It is a very much needed and in many respects ground-braking piece of work that delivers on the promise of its title. This is a work that Caless should be congratulated on, and one that is destined to be an essential book in police studies." Professor Georgios A. Antonopoulos, Teeside University
"brings out issues to non-police readers very well", Richard Wilson, Goodreads review
"Having known Bryn Caless for many years, I knew, on hearing he was putting pen to paper, that the reader would be in for a thoroughly researched and thought provoking examination of "policing at the top". You won't be disappointed. Whether scholar, commentator, police professional or interested observer, this book will prove a fascinating read and a welcome addition to this area of study." Jim Barker-McCardle, Chief Constable, Essex Police
"A revealing, rigorous insight into the lives and perspectives of contemporary chief police officers. It reports on interviews with nearly a hundred of today's chiefs, and features their own accounts of their experiences and problems. A valuable and fascinating contribution to the understanding of 21st century policing as seen by those responsible for shaping its current and future practices." Robert Reiner, London School of Economics
