Red-Faced Boy In Blue

‘DO as I say, not as I do. That was the message from Superintendent Peter West who had to dash home from a talk he was giving on crime prevention…because his house was being burgled.

The Kent cop went to comfort his wife after she found robbers had taken jewellery and personal items from their house in Folkestone.

‘My first instinct was concern for my family, followed by my professional instinct of wanting to catch whoever was responsible,” he said.

“I am no different from any other victim of crime in that I want to see justice done. I have since taken further security steps to protect my house.

‘Having been a policeman for a number of years, I do understand victims’ frustrations and I am very mindful of the security measures that need to be taken.”
