DS Ray Carling joined the Met along with his DCI back in 1981. A burly, no-nonsense chap with some military affectations that I do not believe are backed up with any practical experience in the armed forces. An imbalanced professional code of conduct. Has been spotted on numerous occasions performing no discernible task whatsoever. Feet on the desk. Smoking like it was about to be banned! Similarly lackadaisical when it comes to forensic examination or deductive action.
Much more spontaneous and thorough when called upon to carry out "chase and arrest". In fact so enthusiastic is DS Carling in his apprehension of suspects that on more than one occasion I have formally cautioned him for violent misconduct - once whilst awaiting the outcome of a touch-and-go operation performed on a previously healthy man that Carling was arresting for parking offences.
Has applied no less than five times since his transfer to be considered for promotion. I have insisted that he refrain in future. A violent, lazy, ill-tempered and malcontent Detective Inspector would only add to this division's woes when it comes to public profile. It is my feeling that Carling is perfectly suited to the role of Sergeant.
Post script on personal circumstances: never seems to have a girlfriend but boasts incessantly about his sexual conquests usually involving twins or triplets.
Sexual orientation undecided.
