Big extract from his book in the Mail.
Two years ago, a serving police constable calling himself PC David Copperfield wrote a groundbreaking book, serialised by the Mail, describing how ordinary bobbies are frustrated at every turn by bureaucracy. The Government then promised widespread reforms. But now a senior officer in a regional force – using the pseudonym Inspector Gadget – reveals that the situation has actually worsened. Here, he reveals how elf\’n\’safety laws, political correctness and barmy target-setting are preventing the police from catching criminals.
Wonder whether they\’re actually paying this time….as they didn\’t PC Copperfield until a complaint was made….
