Jane Brettle captures the diversity of Scotland's Police forces in this group of work by highlighting the differences in geography, population density and community across the country and the challenges that these bring. This group of photographs clearly shows the extent of the Scottish Police's work including community liaison, armed response, forensics, detective and mounted personnel. Brettle captures the individuality of the officers and support staff in their working environment.
In addition, in two essays, the work of Jane Brettle is discussed as well as the development of contemporary policing in Scotland. Included in the book are personal captions written by the officers and support staff who were involved in this innovative project.
