Hampshire Police Marine Unit provide lots of ideas for new DI Horton crime novel

Pauline Rowson, whose fictional detective, DI Andy Horton, is based in the Solent  area and whose Horton marine mystery crime novels include members of a fictional Hampshire Police Marine Unit - Sergeant Dai Elkins and PC Ripley - introduced real police officers from the team of the Hampshire Marine Police Unit at the Crime Writers' Association (CWA) Conference on Saturday 21 April.

Pauline Rowson with Marine PolicePCs Kerry Murray and Matt Gransden entertained crime writers from the CWA and provided a fascinating and informative talk about the splendid work they do. They gave Pauline plenty of ideas not only for plots for future DI Horton crime novels but also for characters!


Pauline Rowson introduced Kerry and Matt and gave the audience at the CWA some background on her DI Horton marine mystery crime novels.




The Solent is the busiest waterway in Europe and one of the busiest in the world with around one million commercial and Naval shipping movements per year and in excess of 10 million pleasure craft movements per year.

PC Kerry Murray and PC Matt Gransden talked about the police marine team and the work they do which includes counter terrorism patrols, the reduction and detection of marine crime, investigation of marine incidents and fatalities, policing large events, supporting the UK Border Agency, Coastguard, and Harbour Authorities and responsibility for countering serious and organised crime and preventing child abduction.

The unit consists of one Sergeant and nine PCs, policing with three semi displacement launches covering an area that stretches from Dorset to Sussex and out to 12 miles offshore.
