THE INSPECTOR CALLS: Confessions of a Police Speaker !
A talk by Neil Sadler.
This talk draws on the curious, poignant and sometimes downright funny things Neil has been told while giving talks about his 30 year police career. This talk complements the recently published book of the same title.
“What did you want to do when you grew up?”
Why was Neil under suspicion as an IRA bomber in the 1970s ?
The Grand Hotel bombing 1984 – and why one guest asked for a reduction in his bill !
A very peculiar request at a Women’s Institute meeting !
“Which was your most memorable shift?”
And many more interesting incidents, often stranger than fiction!
Neil Sadler trained as a school teacher and worked on the Isle of Man before returning to England for a very brief spell as a civil servant based in Bristol. In 1978 he decided that an office based job was not for him and he joined Sussex Police.
He spent much of his 30 year’s service as an operational officer in various ranks across Sussex, working briefly in Hong Kong, Trinidad and Abu Dhabi….he even survived Bognor Regis, Haywards Heath and Crawley!
Following retirement in 2008, he now offers his talks to groups and organisations throughout Sussex, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire and south London.
