This book tells the story of a lad from a council house background who followed a career with Cumbria Constabulary with no qualifications other than a willingness to work hard and learn from his peers. This book looks back at his life as a Police Officer.
The story within could bear great similarities to many others who followed the same route. Individual officers and other colleagues are rarely named but one or two of real significance are. When I say real significance I mean out of either respect for their personalities, skills, or just plain admiration and friendship.
I hope you enjoy the book. It’s my first crack at a literary work so no doubt a few grammatical errors have been committed. Hopefully they won’t spoil the read!
I enjoyed a long and happy career with Cumbria Police supported by my wife and family. I could not have done it without their support for which I will forever be grateful.
I hope in years to come, my Grandchildren will be able to read it and understand what Granddad did in his career.
Absolutely delighted to be associated with the author and his debut novel. I have known Steve for many years and he is a five star man who has written a five star book. His biography will make you cry, make you laugh, and make you proud of the police service in which he served. An absolute 'mustread' from a very determined gentleman.
