This is going to hurt my reputation as a closet anarchist, but I've been browsing a couple of UK Police Blogs. Police Inspector Blog and The Policeman's Blog.

When they're hanging round the local market town on Friday night, or stopping you for speeding and giving you the lecture, the Police seem like some strange version of humanity that was probably bullied as a kid and grew up to be power hungry bullies themselves. And I've never been able to work out why people become policemen. But then you realise what shit they have to go through every day and what shit happens on the edges of society and you realise we couldn't pay them enough if we tried.

The Ambulance blog Random Acts of Reality is a bit of an eye opener as well.
