In almost twenty years as a cop on the beat Alfie Moore ‘has seen it all’ so, in addition to all that policing knowledge and experience, he has a wealth of hilarious stories you ‘just couldn’t make up’.
His BBC Radio 4 Comedy series IT’S A FAIR COP is the perfect vehicle for Alfie to skilfully blend succinct layman explanations about the law, with very funny anecdotes from his own policing experiences, whilst taking the audience through a real-life scenario from his own police casebook.
The premise of the show is that Alfie ‘swears in’ the audience as police officers and, as the scenario unfolds, playfully challenges them with the real moral dilemmas that police officers on the street face every day and invites them to share what real-time decisions they would have made. Often with unexpected and entertaining results!
With the benefit of hindsight decisions made by police officers on the street can look like ‘howlers’ after the event (or in the press) but officers often have to make snap decisions based only on the information that they have in front of them. Sometimes only seconds to make very difficult decisions – and the audience gets to have a taste of how this feels as Alfie takes them through a different scenario each week. The shows will be available on BBC Sounds after transmission.
