by N.E. Wood

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reviewed for +Readers' Favorite .

Have you ever wondered what it's really like to be a cop? Not all the glory job that you see on television but the mundane everyday stuff? Well N. E. Wood takes his time on the force and relays some of the best stories of things that actually happened to him when he was working on Australia's Gold Coast. Police don't move is wickedly funny at times, serious and direct at others, and teaching still at more. The cases highlighted are some of the best, funniest and down right silliest you will ever read. Then there are some that taught the officer a lesson, so that made him better and others that lead to his retirement.

Police Don't Move captures real life, the pictures and pretty parts; and the ugly and dirty parts just the same. It gives you a look into an area that is just like any other area, what Officer Nick experienced and talked about are the same things any cop in any town is going to tell you he has dealt with to. N. E. Wood takes his time to tell the stories more like his is sitting right there talking to you, than you reading a book. At the same time, he puts his emotions and feelings into some of the harder issues that he faced. It is well written and a great fun read for anyone. Might not want the kids to read it without parents around, but then again, they could learn what not to do, and how to stay out of trouble from this book too.
