'A huge hit... Will make you laugh out loud' - The Daily Mail In October 2006 a policeman called PC David Copperfield (pseudonym) received over a million hits to his blog site called Coppersblog. Coppersblog detailed a hilarious but shocking diary of life in a modern British town where teenage yobs terrorise the elderly, drunken couples brawl in front of their children and drug addicted burglars roam free. WASTING POLICE TIME is Copperfield's hilarious and shocking diary of life as a modern British bobby. It's the first book to spill the beans about the way senior police officers waste money while fiddling the crime figures and scrambling to meet bogus Home Office targets. Copperfield's Chief Constable won't like it and neither will the government. But honest taxpayers - sick of being fleeced while criminals rule the streets - will relish every word. Copperfield has been interviewed with his face obscured on BBC TV's Newsnight, Sky News, and this book is currently being used by the Conservative Party's shadow Home Affairs Team as they draw up policing policies for the future.

Bringing together academics and professionals, this edited collection considers key issues in current criminal justice policy and practice related specifically to women to answer the important question: are women being failed by the criminal justice system? In a landscape where women’s involvement in the criminal justice system still tends to be ignored or lost in discussions about men, contributors place special emphasis on women as both victims and offenders. The chapters cover a wide range of topics relating to women and crime, including: violent and sexual victimisation, violent offending, sentencing and punishment, and rape myths. Since the peak of feminist criminal justice scholarship in the 1990s, the place of women in the criminal justice system has arguably slipped down the agenda and the authors of this collection draw on original research to make the compelling case for a swift remedy to this. Drawing on recent academic studies and professional experience to set an agenda for future research – as well as legal and policy reform – this book injects new life into the dialogue surrounding women and the criminal justice system. Innovative and timely, this collection of essays holds broad appeal to academics and practitioners, as well as students of criminology, criminal justice and law, and all those with an interest in feminism, justice, and inequality.
