Proud to Serve chronicles the journey of one police officer between 1999 and 2004 as he worked with key community influencers and colleagues to tackle the challenges of policing diverse communities.

Whether working to recruit more black and minority ethnic staff into the West Midlands Police, engaging with counterparts in India and the UK to tackle ‘Forced Marriages’ or simply making communities safer in Cyprus this illustrated book straddles continents as that journey unfolds.

It contains recollections including from Paul Lewin, founding chair of the West Midlands Black Police Association who said of his work, ‘Our legacy has been about learning from the past, living in the present in order to build and improve for the future. I am proud that we did our best. Ultimately, this will be for others to judge’.

Michael Layton concludes, ‘From Willenhall in the Black Country to Delhi and the Punjab, and finally Cyprus – was the journey worth it – of course it was!’
