'Blue Line - Pink Thread' provides a fascinating insight into life in the police service from 1969 through to 2000. Carole Phillips recounts true stories of her time as a female officer in Bedfordshire Police before equal opportunities and political correctness, the integration of women into front-line services and her journey through the ranks to Superintendent. Carole writes with humour and sincerity to deliver numerous fascinating accounts, including those of her time as a detective and as the first female patrol sergeant. 2015 marks one hundred years of British women in policing and ‘Blue Line - Pink Thread' is not only an excellent read, but makes a significant contribution to the social history of that period.

Carole's police career was from 1966 - 2000 in various ranks from Special Constable to Superintendent.
