A CHESHIRE police officer has written and had published his memoirs which paint a ‘brutally honest’ picture of his time in the force.
The serving officer who uses the pen name Tom Ratcliffe, says he reveals all in his bookPrisoners, Property and Prostitutes .
Tom says his book is “brutally honest” and he insists it is not the “back stabbing books about the police force which all too frequently end up on the shelves of book stores”.
Instead he says it is an “honest and often funny” look at his time in the constabulary.
The book starts when Tom joins the force in the 1983, and he paints a vivid picture of aspects of life and humanity that lie hidden from mainstream society.
The book has already been reviewed in the Cheshire Police newsletter Catalyst by the editor Chris Wood. He said: “The book itself is a real eye opener for officers and staff still ‘young in service’ who think the BBC series Life on Mars was fiction. I was fascinated by the tales of the less than PC policing methods still being used a couple of decades ago.”
Prisoners, Property and Prostitutes can be ordered from Amazon.
