Alfie Moore spent eighteen years on the Humberside police force before turning to stand up comedy. In this, his first series for Radio 4, he swears his audience in and takes them through a real life scenario to see what sort of officers they'd have made. Along the way he tells tales from the coppering front line as well as instructing us on the niceties of British law as it applies to each scenario.
