How To Survive Your Police Career

A Practical Guide To Health For The 24/7 Bobby


Written in a deliberately irreverent style intended to keep the average Bobby turning the pages, Police Sergeant Darren Moor draws on his experience from twenty-eight years of policing to explain to fellow Bobbies and front-line staff how to survive whilst working such a frantic 24/7 existence. 

Presenting up-to-date research, he offers practical but humorous advice on avoiding infections large and small, what best to eat on rotating shifts, sleeping after nights, training your body to hopefully avoid but then recover from physical injury, and maintaining good mental health especially after traumatic incidents. There is also guidance on female and ethnic health, relationships, fire, water and social media safety, acid and dog attacks, sexual health, preserving eyesight (those damn computers!) and spotting the early signs of cancers and other life-threatening conditions which Bobbies often don’t pick-up on as a result of being so knackered through never-ending shift-work.

With contributions from police specialists in their field, this is a book which every Bobby should have around the home or in their kitbag to refer to when they have questions about their health.

This book should be mandatory kit to any Police Officer, or any emergency worker, from fresh faced probationer to an old sweat. This book is all about self care and as an serving officer of nearly 18 years I wish I had it when I first started. The tips on diet, illness, physical care, mental care and sleep (especially night working) are superb. The contributions from all those involved gives you valuable tools to cope with your Police career. There is something for everyone, even if you think you already know all about it, this book will give you something new. I will be passing on a copy to my neice who is just starting out to give her an excellent foundation for self care for her new career.

I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of this book, I have now purchased a copy and looking forward to enjoying the book. It's got vital information in with a comical twist.
Well done for producing this book and wish it was written when I joined up 17 yrs ago as a wet behind the years 18 year old
