An Exciting First Chapter

Written by RSS Poster World Weary Detective on the 01st November 2016 at 8:02 - Posted in Police Blogs

I arrived at the training school. I was ready. Ready to make a difference. I wanted to help people. Now was the beginning of my destiny. I would save the city, the dark city, the city of love and hate. I would come to both love and hate the city that I policed. But first, I was to be trained. Our instructor stood at the gates, a big moustache, trousers tight across muscular thighs and well toned buttocks. He’d turned so his profile was reflected under the searchlights that crossed the yard...

The One Punch Killer

Written by RSS Poster World Weary Detective on the 25th October 2016 at 17:36 - Posted in Police Blogs

This is another true story from my time on the murder squad. As always, reader discretion advised...Croydon. A place of broken dreams, a barren heartland to the south. A place to get proper pissed. Our victim had taken a bucket load of drugs, which he’d blended with a lovely selection of seasonal wines, beers and spirits. The lab are still analysing his blood samples some fifteen years later. The initial scientist on the case was driven to madness and became a hermit living in a cave. In Birmingham.Our...

An Introduction to the Police

Written by RSS Poster World Weary Detective on the 24th October 2016 at 7:06 - Posted in Police Blogs

This is a quick guide to the different roles within the police.  The police contain two sorts of people - men and women. I have worked with both during my career. Police officers can be readily identified by other police officers. The trick is to look for the ones balancing a silly pointy hat on their head. Others will have a variety of pips and crowns or stripes on their shoulders designating rank. The higher the rank, the higher the level of self-regard. You are promoted by people with even...

The Darkness of the City

Written by RSS Poster World Weary Detective on the 22nd October 2016 at 19:30 - Posted in Police Blogs

It was the darkness that got to me. The creeping blackness that came with the downing of the light. The sun falling like a punch in the guts. The sewer crawlers sucking at the air, looking at the crescent moon and laughing. I couldn't get the noise out of my head - The sound of her dying. The screams woke me. I was on the floor again, soaked in sweat. The naked bulb, swinging to the thudding from above. I shook the nightmares from my head. It wasn't real. I reached for a smoke. I had a burn...

Polishing the Truncheon - The Secretive World of Police Training

Written by RSS Poster World Weary Detective on the 21st October 2016 at 8:07 - Posted in Police Blogs

I trained to become a police officer. We were taken to a secret location and made to wear big pointy hats and flares. We were each given an en-suite room. In the old sense. Nowadays it would be described as a sink. Most of my class were on the same floor, so we would shower together and iron each others trousers. We also leaned to ball our boots, an expression which still makes me chuckle in a schoolboy fashion. Study notes were known as ‘white notes’ due to the revolutionary use of white paper...
