Police, Lies & Alibis

The True Story of a Front Line Officer


Discover what REALLY happens in the police. Is the discovery of a headless corpse the work of a serial killer? When do police & paramedics fall out? Who killed Yoda? What is a Death Fart? Why do some criminals think they are ‘worth it’? Who invented the Crying Machine? How do you beat the burglar? Why do the police have to pay particular attention to boobs? Come on patrol with PC Donoghue and get the answers to all these questions and more. Police, Lies & Alibis is the fascinating and hilarious account of a year in the life of a front line police response officer, and the only humorous police book written by a serving officer who is not hiding his identity. It is the follow-up book to Police, Crime &?999, a book which still remains hugely popular today, with over 240 5-star Amazon reviews, and which garnered positive feedback from a number of national publications. WARNING: Contains Humour & Traces of Nuts.

John Donoghue

John Donoghue has written four books.

Shakespeare My Butt! is the tale of his military service on land and sea, how he played Moses to the dog world with 'The Ten Commandments of Dog' and finally, his odyssey around the bizarre named places in Britain with Barney the Labrador.

Bored, he then joined the police, where he discovered that FACT was stranger than FICTION on the front line..

The funny, interesting and bizarre side of the police are exposed in three books so far...

Police, Crime & 999

Police, Lies & Alibis

Police, Arrests & Suspects

So if you REALLY want to find out what happens in the police...

He is currently a serving officer who has yet to be sacked for his indiscretions (information correct at time of going to press).

He also wishes to add that none of the views or opinions expressed in this book are endorsed by any constabulary.

Oh dear.....
