Drabble: Police Protection

Title: Police Protection

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Jack, Cardiff Police, Team.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 408: Copper at tw100

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: Jack doesn’t care that the Cardiff police don’t like Torchwood.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Torchwood wasn’t well liked by the Cardiff heddlu, which was understandable. Trouble was, they ran roughshod over everyone from uniformed coppers on the beat to inspectors and crime scene people.

It was easy to think that Jack and his team should be more polite, but in an emergency there was seldom time to ask people to leave, and wait while they made up their minds. In life-or-death situations, if sending the police packing saved them from attack by something they weren’t prepared to deal with… Well, Jack would rather have them alive and hating him than dead.

Simple as that.

The End


Jack has a point there.

Great drabble.
Thank you! The police might not know that he's protecting them, but that won't stop Jack!
Sadly, that is often the case in emergencies.
The police might resent Jack and Torchwood for the way they behave, but ordinary coppers aren't equipped to deal with a lot of the things that Torchwood faces. They're a lot safer kept out of the way where they can't interfere with things they don't understand.

Thank you.
I also appreciate the title you gave this drabble. :)
Thank you! Sometimes, the Cardiff police need to be protected from themselves, because there are some things they're just not equipped to take on.
