‘Lethal Force’ by Tony Long

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016


Some of SSDs readers, and those in the trade, may remember Tony from his time with Edgar Brothers but may not know that having retired in 2008 after 33 years service with the London Met and 25 years with the Met’s Specialist Firearms team, in 2014 he was charged with the death of an armed suspect who together with two others were on route to rob and kill rival drug dealers. Tony faced a murder trial in 2015 and was rightly acquitted. He has written the book ‘Lethal Force‘ to put the record straight and explain the difficulties of being an armed officer within a police service and a society that is predominately unarmed. I can’t wait to read it.
