John Sutherland is a serving police officer. He joined the Met in 1992, and has worked in seven London boroughs in a range of ranks and roles, including as Borough Commander. He lives in London with his wife and three young children. His book, Blue: A Memoir – Keeping the Peace and Falling to Pieces, is an account of more than two decades on the front line and a very personal account of the highs that a life in uniform can bring as well as the lows which can cause even the most hardened of officers to break. It will be published by Weidenfeld & Nicholson (Orion) in May 2017.
