This chapter raises questions about leadership in police organisations by interrogating the trajectory of modernisation in the Hellenic Police. Greece’s national police force continues to negotiate modernisation imperatives with a legacy of political partisanship, clientelism and deep entrenchment in militarism and bureaucratism. These historical and contemporary conditions have punctuated democratic police modernisation by shaping an organisational outlook that both limits the responsiveness of the organisation to external demands for change, and also compromises its capacity to pursue change organically through a strong culture of police leadership.
