Dee has a reputation; or several reputations, if he’s honest with himself. Not all of them are good. He’s known to be lazy, especially when it comes to paperwork, to be something of a loose cannon with a casual disregard for rules and regulations, and to be an unrepentant flirt. Nobody who’s ever met him would call him a womaniser, simply because he doesn’t restrict his flirting to the chicks, being bisexual means he’s an equal opportunities flirt, but you get the picture.
None of the above is the reputation he means though, and as far as Dee’s concerned, they’re of no importance. There’s only one reputation that matters to him, the one he’s worked hardest to create; everybody knows him as an honest cop who can’t be bought for any price. His honesty is a matter of pride; he made a promise to Jess, and he’ll never break it.
