Tales From a West Australian Cop: From Peacekeeping in the Middle-East to Peacemaking in the Australian Outback

by Bob MacDonald

From Peacekeeping in the Middle-East To Peacemaking in the Australian Outback

Real life police drama is okay...but true stories of police emergencies that make you laugh out loud—as well as shudder—are better!

Experience what it's like to be involved in a high-speed car chase. Learn how to cope with the stress of telling someone of the death of a loved one.

What is life like on a remote Australian desert aboriginal community? How do police deal with tribal ‘pay-back’ spearing incidents?

Experience the anguish of working in a war zone…and why controlling your imagination is so crucial, when you find yourself alone facing a deranged man armed with a weapon.

Stare death in the face at the hands of drunken or drug crazed people…and live to tell the tale.

Laughter helps the mind, heals the body and is a critical survival tool for all who work on the frontline of death, dying and disaster.

Take a peek inside this diary of a West Australian Police Officer who knows that it’s okay to laugh at yourself and the world around you. A natural storyteller, Bob MacDonald’s writing is refreshing and makes easy reading.

MacDonald spent thirty years serving as a police officer; working his way through the ranks—from a raw recruit through to a commissioned officer attached to the Internal Investigation Branch of the Professional Standards Portfolio.

His duties included time with the United Nations Civilian Police blue beret peacekeepers, based on the island nation of Cyprus during the Greek/Turkish conflict, as well as extensive service in Australian outback locations; Papua New Guinea and North Solomon Islands.
