Why it has all gone wrong within our public services

Written by RSS Poster Political Police on the 28th March 2013 at 18:44 - Posted in Police Blogs

This article was in the Guardian yesterday and was written and paid for by its author Mike Ledwidge. Clearly Mike was angry enough to fork out a significant amount of his hard earned wedge and deserves to be heard. Our public services have been devastated over the last 25years and the reasons have been hidden in the complexityof detail. I am so angry about what has been done thatI have actually paid for this page out of my own money.How angry have I got to be to do that! And yes, I do knowwhat I...

Officer Down - Sergeant Paul McKeever, Met Police.

Written by RSS Poster Political Police on the 19th January 2013 at 12:41 - Posted in Police Blogs

Reblogged from POLICE INSPECTOR BLOG: Gadget Reader (female Met officer) "I used to think my Federation contributions would be better spent on something else. Meeting Paul changed that" Paul McKeever, Chairman of the Police Federation of England and Wales, died last night. Now is not the time for detailed obituary. I trusted Paul with my identity. He was a Gadget reader and supporter. He used to contact me to give me his thoughts about things I have written and the comments you, the readers, make...

    I can remember when I was first working as a response officer and a flat tyre was nothing more than an inconvenience, having to change the tyre myself was  necessary and the only way to continue driving, after all is that not why we have a spare tyre in the first place? A detective colleague of mine  recently got a flat in his unmarked car so he called the control room on airwave to request the AA to attend and change his flat tyre, he correctly assumed changing the tyre...

WTF

Written by RSS Poster Political Police on the 11th July 2010 at 18:29 - Posted in Police Blogs

Some sick individual has created a facebook group depicting Raoul Moat as a legend! Sky News reports this sick idea with over 3000 people signing up to be members of the group. I say Facebook should have this group removed immediately as an offensive publication that disrespects his victims and their families. Moat was a cold blooded killer and should he have been arrested was looking at spending the rest of his life behind bars, right where he belonged.

YOU CAN’T MAKE A PIG FATTER BY MEASURING IT

  In my force we seem to have a large team of people, mainly civilians who’s primary role is to gather statistics and punch data into a computer. They produce information informing the SMT (senior management Team)  about how poor or how well we are doing in certain areas, I don’t really know who these people are! they are just names at the end of an email or in a PowerPoint presentation. I am told things like we are the worst performing station for carrying out things like stop searches...

BRAVO JUBILEE

Written by RSS Poster Political Police on the 12th December 2008 at 18:31 - Posted in Police Blogs

At long last the latest episode by Charlie Owen is out in the shops and my copy arrived today. If this book is as good as Charlie’s first two books I am in for a real treat. The last two books had me in stitches of laughter throughout so I cant wait to get stuck in!! My advice is get your copy ASAP and enjoy the idea of Policing that would have the criminals shaking in their shoes.

Excessive force yes or no

I don’t think so, looks more like the officer was trying to give this guy a dead arm in order to get him to release his arm. Hardly a beating in my eyes.   http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/manchester/7757229.stm

Home Secretary – Thank You

Written by RSS Poster Political Police on the 26th September 2008 at 0:54 - Posted in Police Blogs

First I want to say that I had some serious help with this post from a close friend and colleague, who is a far better writer than I. My thanks to him for saving me here as I was lost for words.   Don’t let the Home Secretary ‘blind you’ by talking nonsense. On one hand she makes grand claims regarding ‘stop and account’ and how she is reducing the burden of paperwork on operational policing by removing this burden in a trial 10 forces – oh don’t rush...
