Dee Simpson was born and raised in the Wheatbelt town of Moora, Western Australia. Her passion to protect and help the community saw her join the Western Australian Police Force in 2005, where she served almost 14 years reaching the level of Senior Constable. Dee is now wanting to share her experiences and those of past and present Police Officers through her first-of-a-kind book. Here Dee explains what it is really like to be a Police Officer, and the trials and tribulations experienced in their professional and personal lives.
It Was the Best of Days, It Was the Worst of Days is a compilation of short stories by 13 past and present Police Officers. This is followed by Dee's own life experiences of having Police deliver the tragic news of her father and brother dying in two separate traffic crashes 82 days apart when she was a child, and her own career ending due to a life-altering experience.
