Come on a journey with veteran firearms officer, Stephen Smith as he goes behind the scenes of the Met's Specialist Firearms Unit, CO19.

This book covers events from the controversial shooting of Azelle Rodney in 2005 and Mark Duggan in 2011, right up to the outrageous terrorists attacks on Westminster, London Bridge and Borough Market.

Stephen Smith, through his unique access to CO19, has managed to put together hundreds of detailed photographs along with text that goes a long way to explain why it is necessary to have such an elite firearms unit on standby 24/7 in London.

This comprehensive volume will bring you right up-to date with the training, operations, equipment and mindset of these courageous individuals who put their lives on the line on a daily basis to keep the capital safe.

London's Armed Police is a must have for anyone with an interest in modern policing or police firearms matters.
