During David Woodlands 19 years service with the Metropolitan Police, thethin blue line came under intense pressure. In addition to the routine caseload of gang crime, murder and armed robbery, Irish terrorist groups launched a vicious and prolonged terror campaign.The Author, a Detective Inspector in the Crime Intelligence Branch at New Scotland Yard, witnessed a series of major scandals. He reveals why many otherwise honest detectives strove to rectify defects in the law that allowed professional criminals to evade justice. When Sir Robert Marks, the newly appointed Police Commissioner, described the CID asthe most routinely corrupt organization in London, there may have been more than an element of truth in his extraordinary claim but it devastated the publics credibility in the CID. Using his own cases and experience, he demonstrates the difficulties faced by a depleted, demoralized Police Force not leastthe enemy within. Crime and Corruption at The Yard is a gripping, shocking and instructive insiders account of sharp end police work. Salutary lessons are learnt about the effect of PC andhuman rights on the preservation of law and order.
