We follow one man on his journey from uniform constable on the beat into the Vice Squad and then into the CID, gaining confidence and experience on the way. Times in the 1960s were changing and with Britain prospering, the Force began to suffer from a lack of manpower, with officers leaving for better-paid jobs. As a result, new methods of policing were introduced, including personal radios and Panda Cars, which involved massive change for those officers which remained. The book sheds light on a way of policing society which has long since passed.

After a short period of service in the Royal Navy, the author joined a northern city police force in 1961. After serving for over 30 years, he retired as chief superintendent and then went into academia, becoming a member of staff at his local university.
