Police: Ask me Anything!

Written by RSS Poster Matt Delito


Have you ever heard of Reddit? It’s a pretty popular website, which has a section called ‘Ask me Anything’. Today at 2pm uk time (about five hours after this post is posted), I am scheduled to do an ‘Ask me anything’. You ask me questions, I answer them. Simple, eh? Set your alarm for 1:45, [...]


Police: And then there was a book.

Written by RSS Poster Matt Delito


It’s been an incredibly long ride, and I never thought this was actually going to happen, but it did… And on April 25th, my book, Confessions of a Police Constable, is going on sale! The book is available for pre-order now, and can be perused as a good, old-fashioned dead-trees-and-and-print version (Look! There’s a picture [...]

Police: The Fuzzy end of the Lollypop

Written by RSS Poster Matt Delito


“Delito, I need to talk to you at the end of the briefing.” I looked up. There are plenty of innocent reasons for why that phrase might be uttered – they might need me to do an arrest inquiry, for example, or perhaps I’ve been selected for a course I put myself forward for – [...]

Police: A Sense of Perspective

Written by RSS Poster Matt Delito


“Okay, slow down — Is anybody hurt?” I ask the man who is standing in the kitchen, holding an enormous meat cleaver. “No! Nobody!” he replies, wild-eyed. “Right, well, can you put the knife down please?” He looks at me, eyeing me up from top to toe. I’m worried I may have to react quickly, [...]


Police: The Prince and his Counterfeits

Written by RSS Poster Matt Delito


It’s mid-afternoon on an altogether rather lovely Wednesday, and I have that Friday feeling. That is what weird shift patterns will do to you — sometimes you get ‘that Friday feeling’ on a Monday morning, after a long Sunday late turn, which is utterly bizarre, but not entirely unpleasant either. This fine Wednesday, I am [...]


Police: A Breach of the Queen’s Peace

Written by RSS Poster Matt Delito


I hear a kicking sound from the back of the caged van parked in the yard, near the custody cage, outside the station mess. “Hey Pete,” I call from across the yard, to the familiar outline of the hulking Pete, walking in my direction. I knew he had just made an arrest, and assumed the [...]


Police: The Red Menace

Written by RSS Poster Matt Delito


It’s coming up towards the end of a gruelling night shift. So far today, the craziness included helping drag a drunk, near-drowned teenager out of a park lake, which meant I had to head back home to get a dry shift of clothes. Of course, since this is towards the end of our shift pattern, [...]


Police: Bright days at B&Q

Written by RSS Poster Matt Delito


Still driving to my mum’s house for the family barbecue, I’m slightly incredulous at the security guy who had tried to arrest-and-not-quite-arrest me not a few hours ago in the day. But then my phone, which I have it in a holder on my dash where it’s serving as my in-car audio, rings aloud. Irritatingly, [...]
