“A policeman’s lot …can be quite an interesting one!”
Join our January ladies lunch and enjoy a welcome drink, three-course lunch and a very interesting talk from ex-police officer, Neil Sadler.
- When is a bomb not a bomb? Policing Gatwick airport.
- Searching for missing persons; the miracle of the lost two-year-old.
- Political conferences and the Grand Hotel bombing of 1984.
- The rise of “Robo-cop” - changes in uniform and equipment since 1978.
And many more examples detailing the frailties of human nature...
Neil 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 years 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 and south London.
