Sir Robert Mark talks to DESMOND WILCOX
Britain's number one policeman retired this spring in an atmosphere nearly as stormy as when he took over Scotland Yard five years ago. In his time, he threatened to put all the CID men back into uniform; he fired, or hounded out of Scotland Yard, perhaps as many as 500 corrupt policemen; he encouraged policemen to feel free to talk to the press and appear on television - and he himself did so frequently; he attacked corrupt lawyers and the present-day trial and jury systems; he made speeches which frightened his own men, won the confidence of the public and alarmed Home Secretaries; he took personal charge of the Spaghetti House and Balcombe Street sieges. He likes Gilbert and Sullivan and police horses. He's hated by all criminals and quite a few policemen. When he took over at Scotland Yard he believed his task was to shake things up and put them in good order. He succeeded. But he's quit because the new Police Act, which places police discipline under the control of political nominees, is something he refuses to administer.
Now, for the first time, he feels free to talk about his own police career, present-day police problems, and the kind of policeman he thinks we need today.
