Product Description

Product Description

A satirical portrayal of Uniform Police versus CID rivalry and essential garbage avoidance know-how for the aspiring Police Crime Investigator.

Time, the most precious commodity of the Police crime investigator. Some say if you master time you master life but plotters are unceasingly contriving to steal your time in ways you could never imagine. Time you should almost certainly spend on other more worthy investigations.

If you are a plain clothes crime investigator the time thieves are mostly your uniformed Police 'colleagues' who are under their own time pressures as well. Where an opportunity exists (or can be created) to pass an investigation from their plate to yours they will probably take it and so the story continues. In that regard your Police 'colleague' becomes the 'uniformed opposition' and the 'investigation' becomes the 'garbage' that nobody wants to keep.

If instead you are a uniformed Police officer there's more than a little something in this book for you as well. You can laugh as you deploy technique after technique against those unsuspecting plain clothes investigators to free yourself from the garbage.

Written with affection by John Needham, ex Scotland Yard Detective and former Head of Law Enforcement relations for

5.0 out of 5 stars Cutting insight from an 'old school' detective. 19 Oct 2012
This is a classic 'inside joke' book which will have massive appeal to serving officers and ex-cops around the world. We've all been there, and if you say you haven't then you are either telling 'porkies' or you need to read this book. The less time you spend investigating things that shouldn't be investigated, the more time you can spend catching the real bad guys.
