Detective Chief Superintendent Ian Hunter - Thames Valley (UK) Police
Thank you for listening to another episode of the Leadership in Law Enforcement Podcast!  I am very excited to share with you my conversation with Detective Chief Superintendent Ian Hunter of the Thames Valley (UK) Police. Ian in our first international guest and he does not disappoint. In this podcast, Ian and I talk about the differences and similarities in policing between the U.S. and UK. We talk about leadership styles, specifically transactional and transformational leadership. "Hands on, fingers out" maybe one of the best explanations for leadership I have heard in a long time. We talk about Ian leading terrorism and counter-corruption investigations as well as conducting investigations in other countries. I like to think I am well versed with law enforcement in the U.S., but my ignorance definitely shows when it comes to policing in other countries.    If you enjoy this podcast, please share with your family and friends.

The podcast can be downloaded from most podcast platforms, such as Spotify, Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Podcast Addict, and more.  Next week’s guest in Chief of Police Tracy Basterrechea of the Meridian, ID Police Department. Tracy shares a lot of great and interesting leadership knowledge with us, so be sure to listen. Stay safe!
