‘Reporting For Duty’ – Mike Layton and Steve Burrows met today with former WMP colleague and former ACC Mick Foster (Trustee for the UK Police Memorial Trust) to discuss how we can best market the book. Each copy sold will attract a donation to the new UK Police Memorial fund. The book includes 90 recollections from retired officers, plus 200 images. Most importantly it features details of thirty ‘fallen officers’ who lost their lives between 1974 and 1999 whilst on duty with the West Midlands Police. They will not be forgotten and the new memorial will ensure their place in the history of policing of the UK provides a lasting and fitting memory to those who served and paid the ultimate price. The book also provides a fascinating insight into the social history of the time with social unrest, major incidents and events plus routine acts of bravery described. Please add your support to this initiative if you can.
