Former Exeter Chiefs and London Irish second-row Jerry Sexton has successfully completed his police training as he looks towards a career in the force once he finishes his rugby career.
Currently playing for English Championship side Jersey, the brother of Ireland captain Johnny completed his training alongside nine other academy graduates.
Below, we look at six other players from down the years who worked for the ‘Old Bill’.
1. Dean Richards
Richards was schooled at John Cleveland College, in Hinckley, and was a police constable for Leicestershire Constabulary between the 1980s and 1990s before English rugby union became professional. He had a long playing career with Leicester Tigers, and played 48 times for England and six times for the British & Irish Lions. The 55-year-old is now the boss of Premiership side Newcastle Falcons.
