It would......well done !clapping!

"...Born in 1893, the splendidly named Athelstan Popkess became the youngest Chief Constable ever at the age of 37. His appointment was not without controversy; he had been a member of the "Black and Tans" and was photographed giving the Nazi salute in a Stuttgart boxing ring in 1936. But he was a visionary policeman. He founded the first forensic laboratory in the country, was the first to introduce police dogs and an advanced driving school. He conceived the idea of traffic wardens, and was the first to exploit wirelesses in the "Uniform Cruisers" of the Mechanised Division which grew to a force of 39 vehicles and 70 officers travelling in white Standard Ensigns and astride white Triumph Thunderbirds. He lived for many years at 35 Newcastle Drive from where he observed and then prohibited boys using Tattershall Drive as a sledge run. He led the Nottingham force until 1960 and died at the age of 75 in Torquay..."
