Carl Byron was a highly thought of police sergeant who loved his job, the only job he had ever wanted to do since he was a small boy. Having just passed his inspectors exam, his career looked like it had a bright future. In private, his life-long battle with mental ill health was starting to take over and Carl was starting to struggle to keep his world together. A series of events took Carl on a journey that meant his life would never be the same again. This is a true story about mental health, the police misconduct system and a very special cat called Alfie. (All royalties are being donated to The Samaritans)

This book is an excellent demonstration of how an organisation sets out to keep it’s own house in order. However, in doing so totally loses it’s way and believes the people doing the watching can do no wrong. The organisation has a no compassion approach and a belief that their holier than thou attitude brings a sterile and sanitised Police Service fit for purpose. Or do they just want to control each employee in some kind of Orwellian nightmare.

Carl is now in the best place in my opinion and I hope his story being told will give him the strength to go on to greater things. A sad story well told. It should be read by every prospective and serving Police officer. It should also be committed to memory by every officer following promotion through the ranks.

History tells us that when an organisation see themselves as being the only ones who know what’s right we end up with Labour camps and death camps.
