Suffolk Helicopter Policing by Adrian Bleese
After the RAF, Adrian Bleese began working for Suffolk Constabulary and spent twelve years flying police helicopters.
In Above The Law he recounts the most intriguing, challenging, amusing and downright baffling episodes in his career working for Suffolk Constabulary and the National Police Air Service.
Rescuing lost walkers, chasing cars down narrow country lanes, searching for a rural cannabis factory and disrupting an illegal forest rave… they’re all in a day’s work.
It’s a side of policing that most of us never see, and he describes it with real compassion as he lives his dream job, indulging his love of flying, the English landscape and helping people. More than anything, it’s a story about hope.
“I have been incredibly privileged to get to see the things I saw, do the things I did and get to know the people I was lucky enough to fly alongside. This book allows me to share my perspective on the world we flew over and the work we did and also to show people a little of what went on, a little of the work done every day by people up and down the country to keep them safe. When I moved to East Anglia it was to Bury St Edmunds that I came. I’ve not yet managed to live there and I love where I live on the Suffolk coast but Bury has a real place in my heart”.
This promises to be an entertaining and intriguing event
