"A very good book written by people who genuinely know policing and can comment on it both practically and theoretically. I liked the subjects addressed too - extremely relevant. This book would equip any student of policing or potential police recruit with much of what they need to either understand real policing or work in the service." (Lecturer, Thames Valley University.)
