A Nottinghamshire PC, Deiderik Coetzee, otherwise known as ‘Robocop’ is retiring on medical grounds at the end of this month.
Coetzee won a formal citation in 2005 after making over 300 arrests in single year on his patrol in the Ladywood estate, Mansfield. This achievement also gained him the nickname ‘robocop’.
Coetzee was left with severe head injuries following a hit-and-run incident in November 2011. The driver of the car, Mitchel Graham, was sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to dangerous driving, failing to stop after the incident, and failing to report it.
