Mastering New Essentials: Leader Skills 4

The BJA Executive Session on Police Leadership gathers brief, informal audio opinions on important and emerging issues.  We are grateful to our contributors for sharing their perspectives and giving of their time.

In this installment of our audio series, two authors of our web paper The Future Is Here And We Are Already Late: Leadership Challenges With Emerging Police Technology speak about key framing issues police leadership must take on.
