John Sutherland

John Sutherland joined the Metropolitan Police Service in 1992, rising quickly through the ranks with many highlights – including commanding armed sieges, saving lives and helping to take dangerous people off the streets. He has previously been Borough Commander for Islington, Camden and Southwark. In early 2013, John suffered a breakdown and consequent battle with depression. He has written a book about his illness and recovery where he offers a personal insight into what it is to be a police officer in Britain today called Blue – Keeping the Peace and Falling to Pieces.
