The Life of a Scilly Sergeant
  • The Life of a Scilly Sergeant

  • ‘Policing is like this everywhere but not everywhere is Scilly’

    Meet Sergeant Colin Taylor, he has been a valuable member of the police force for over 20 years, 5 of which have been spent policing the ‘quiet’ Isles of Scilly, a group of islands off the southwestern tip of the Cornish peninsula.

    Colin has made it his purpose to keep the streets of Scilly free from drunk anchor thieves, Balance Board riders and other culprits, mostly drunken, intent on breaking the law. This book is the first hand account of how he did it.

    Coupled with his increasingly popular ‘Isle of Scilly Police Force’ Facebook page, this book charts the day to day trials and tribulations of a small-island police officer, told in a perfectly humorous and affectionate way. This book is a fantastic read and Colin's antics are soon to be the feautre of a major ITV TV series.

Sergeant Colin Taylor has been the longest serving police officer on the remote and tranquil Isles of Scilly for several generations. Over the years his regular blogging about the unique policing exploits there was enjoyed by millions worldwide. He has now returned to the relative simplicity of policing on the mainland UK. This is how he survived.
