TEARS and LAUGHTER is David Griffin's often humorous, sometimes tragic, account of his thirty years as a police officer in North West England. It follows his journey from raw young recruit to experienced senior officer, introducing some of the people he met along the way and describing many of the rewards and frustrations of his chosen career. He writes from the heart, with an openness and honesty which is often disarming and always intriguing, describing his innermost thoughts and doubts. The story follows him from uniformed constable, through CID, Firearms Team and various other specialist units, eventually rising to the rank of Chief Inspector. He also gives us a glimpse into his private life, describing some of the choices, dilemmas and tragedies which shaped the man. TEARS and LAUGHTER is a unique record of policing during the late 20th and early 21st centuries, as seen through the eyes of one man who experienced it. You will laugh out loud and cry real tears as you join him on his journey.
