Hardback. The author was formerly Assistant-Commissioner Metropolitan Police. During his police service he came into contact with all classes of the public, and not only in London; he realised how very much the relations between the police and the public could be improved by a mutual understanding. Each could help the other. He tries to bring home the essential points of a proper appreciation by each of the rights and duties of the other. Chapter headings include : Formation; Selection and Instruction; Recreation; Police in Fiction; Ambitions and Realisations or 'The Police Service as a Career'; Indiscretions; Reactions of Public; Reorganisation; Investigations, Criminal; Colonial Police Inception; Succession of Commissioners, 1829-1935 (includes Sir Charles Warren and James Monro). Illus. + Index. 286pp. 8vo. h/back. Possibly ex-Boots library as signs of possible shield removal to fr. cover but no library markings, shaky sp. with reinforced hinges. Suitable as a reading copy. G. Extremely scarce.
