Description

A biography of Capt. Athelstan Popkess, Chief Constable of Nottingham City Police 1930-59, who can be considered the one man responsible for modernising the British Police service and transforming it from its Victoria era. He is credited with the introduction of police wireless communications, enhanced police use of forensics and the burglar alarm amongst other things, so perhaps the greatest policeman of the 20th century.187pp
