Description

Thieving ninjas, racist fast-food patrons, road traffic accidents, mischievous shoplifters, sudden deaths, car chases, and domestic violence – it’s all in a day’s work for London-based PC Matt Delito.

Working at the front-line on the streets of London can be thrilling, frightening, rewarding, infuriating, and sometimes plain hilarious.

In this eye-opening account of on-the-beat policing, Delito narrates some of his most interesting cases – from working undercover in a city club to being ambushed in the London riots – as well as taking us through the gadgets, procedures, and lingo that go with life at the other end of a 999 call.

From the team that brought you the bestselling CONFESSIONS OF A GP and CONFESSIONS OF A MALE NURSE comes CONFESSIONS OF A POLICE CONSTABLE: a book that will shine a light on the gripping, touching and shocking realities of life as a city police constable.

    A humorous look at the life of a met police officer. Working in the NHS in London, you sometimes come across these guys and I've always wanted to know what their job is like. Unfortunately I've always been to busy to have a chance to ask. This has been a great insight into to what they do with a great sense of humour to take some of the shock factor away from some of the stories. Well worth the read, I have already recommended it to others. Confessions of a GP is another really good read.
  • An awesome read!

    I could not put this book down and cried when it was over. Did not realize I was on the last chapter before turning the last page onto the footnotes. Highly recommend this read!!!

    I enjoyed this short book very much. As a retired police officer, who changed career later in life, hence the nick name from my training course colleagues, I can totally relate to the incidents and feelings about "The Job". I found the events and feelings in the book very realistic and it reminded me of many of my own experiences. The highs and low's you can experience on a daily basis in what can, for much of the time, seem like a thankless job. However it's not a job you do if you want recognition. It's a job you do because you believe in it. The most important tool at my disposal I felt was often my ability to communicate. Many situations can be calmed and understood by being able to talk to people but also being able to explain when enough is enough. The author has put these points across very well and also brings the human touch. Reading this book has made me smile and laugh and remember the sad times but most of all made me think how much I miss "The Job". Keep safe guys.

    Excellent book, I've wanted to become a policeman for a long time and reading this book only solidified that feeling and made me realise how 'ordinary' my current job is. Well done to the author for being honest and true and not watering down the detail an excellent read to anyone not just the budding PC.
  • Excellent.

    A fantastic read with some amazing stories and priced well. The only reason for 4 stars that I wanted more. A few more stories and it would have been perfect. Then again...maybe I'm just being greedy. Well worth the time and the price.
