Christina Edkins, a beautiful young person, taken too early

Written by RSS Poster POLICE INSPECTOR BLOG on the 08th March 2013 at 9:21 - Posted in Police Blogs

Christina Edkins was stabbed to death on board a bus on Hagley Road, Birmingham while on her way to school in Halesowen. West Midlands Police are continuing to question a 22-year-old man who was arrested near the scene of the stabbing a few hours later. Police believe Christina was killed in a random attack. Any person who randomly stabs a child to death is mentally ill, diagnosed or not. In Ruralshire, mental health provision is woeful. People on the verge of suicide or a manic breakdown cannot...

PFEW ballot 42% turnout. PCC election 15% turnout.

Written by RSS Poster POLICE INSPECTOR BLOG on the 04th March 2013 at 17:15 - Posted in Police Blogs

There was very little point in voting in the police Industrial Rights ballot, other than to save face by avoiding a low turnout. This government has no intention of allowing anyone any further rights, indeed, the current drive is to reduce people’s rights, whether they be Human Rights, the ability to have a case heard by an employment tribunal or secret courts. For those who are interested, 42% of police officers voted. Of those, 82% or 45,000 police officers, voted in favour of industrial...

Totteridge lake rescue – Winsor, May and Green are out of their depth.

Written by RSS Poster POLICE INSPECTOR BLOG on the 23rd February 2013 at 7:27 - Posted in Police Blogs

Two police officers who dived into freezing water to save the life of an unconscious woman trapped inside her car say they do not consider themselves heroes.

Second ‘Officer Down’ in four days – Met Police

Written by RSS Poster POLICE INSPECTOR BLOG on the 20th February 2013 at 21:15 - Posted in Police Blogs

I find it hard to believe that for the second time in less than five days, another police colleague has been discovered dead, this time at an address in London. The 43-year-old PC was discovered by fellow officers at a property in Camden just after 4pm on Tuesday (February 19) following concerns about the occupant. Officers forced entry to the address and found the body of the PC, who was in the Met’s Specialist Protection Command, with a gunshot injury. Our thoughts go out to those police officers...
