“Policing is a uniquely dangerous, harrowing and challenging profession where officers are expected to do far more than prevent and detect crime. To be a police officer is also to be a social worker, marriage guidance counsellor, mental health worker and medic.”
Offering incredible true stories from the front line of policing, The Coppers Lot is a compelling insight into what it takes to be a police officer in Britain in the 21st century. The extraordinary experiences recounted include:
The reader will be taken on a ride along with the extraordinary men and women who have sacrificed so much of themselves whilst they hold the thin blue line as they protect and serve their communities. The officers reveal, often in their own words, just how much policing has changed from the traditional notion of the bobby on the beat to what society today expects from them. The violence and trauma that they are exposed to often leaves them suffering with life changing physical and mental health issues.
