Stories from the clink

Talks - General Interest

Event Description

Which country has a quarter of all the world’s prisoners locked up? Why did the prisoner lock his own cell door from outside on the jail landing in front of me? The real escape from Alcatraz...and the one who didn't quite make it! Did George Best ever play for the prison football team?
All this and more from a former police officer who visited many UK prisons and met many colourful characters. Their stories might well surprise you. Approached with his customary humour, let Neil guide you in (and luckily, out) of a few well-known prisons.

Neil Sadler

Meet The Speaker, Neil

Neil Sadler is a retired senior police officer who can provide talks on a range of subjects. Equipment and photographs will illustrate his cases. Neil spent much of his 30 years service as an operational officer in various ranks across Sussex, working briefly in Hong Kong, Trinidad and Abu Dhabi….he even survived Bognor Regis, Haywards Heath and Crawley!

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
