So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

A big thank you to all my readers over the years and every body who has commented and sent me emails. Good luck to all the other police bloggers , keep up the great work.

I have been posted in a Detective Sergents role and its time to move on and away from the online world .

Have fun , be safe , enjoy life and please get out from behind the desk / computer and see the fantastic world we live in.

This world is for the living and enjoyment of it all , by parting words

To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived;
This is to have succeeded.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Yesterday , I like hundreds of other officers up and down the country found out our results of the recent Sergent's exam.

Congratulations to all those who were successful and I will be joining you all in the celebrations of getting that under the belt and out of the way !


I was thinking of something to post that would reflect the relief and encompass all the recent groans and pains, but there isn't . The rock keeps rolling people want us to be there the service and the officers adapt to what the public wants us to do. Each and every day officers up and down the country excel themselves and are proud of what they do. Long may it last.

So , time to go have some beers and relax and plan the next stage of taking of the world.

( Five years from probationer to passing part 1 exam... not bad for a thicko like me )
