This chapter looks at how senior officers — usually in the rank of superintendent or chief superintendent — are encouraged to apply for command rank, the ‘culture’ of command, the PNAC assessment system and the individual's application to join the Strategic Command Course (SCC); the round of interviews with Police Authorities for the vacancies that follows completion of the SCC and a chief officer's eventual appointment to a police force.
