‘PC Copperfield is the ordinary copper who risked his job to expose the reality of modern day policing’
Jeremy Vine, BBC Panorama
In Wasting More Police Time - the long-awaited follow-up to the controversial bestseller, Wasting Police Time - PC David Copperfield takes readers back to the front line of British policing for more fascinating stories and insights.
PC Copperfield was widely praised for the first book, which lifted the lid on bureaucracy, mismanagement and lunacy in the modern force. Now police officers from all over the UK talk about the job, its frustrations, excitement and tragedies. They discuss violence, low front-line numbers, terrible equipment, the horror of sudden death, policing the recent riots, dealing with drunks, drug addicts and the mentally-ill and much more, in an eye-opening insight into the front-line of the thin blue line.
About the authors:
PC David Copperfield used to work as an ordinary bobby in Staffordshire. After the success of Wasting Police Time, he emigrated and now works as a police officer in Canada where it takes him 15 minutes to deal with a drunken yob, instead of the six hours it used to take back in the UK.
His co-author, Dan Collins, has written many books including In Foreign Fields, and the (ghosted) award-winning autobiography of Martin Johnson, England's 2003 Rugby World Cup winning captain.
