Policing at the Top

Policy Press

Some police officers think that their rise to the top was pre-destined, others that they came to senior promotion very late. This chapter describes the processes by which they became aware of their potential, the poor levels of representation of women in the top ranks, security and unease in these command jobs and work-life balance (or lack of it) among chief police officers.

Keywords:   promotion potential, gender imbalance, unease, work-life balance
