A murder investigation is underway in Birmingham after an 18-year-old man was stabbed to death in Northfield yesterday (Friday 17 April).

Police: Shouldn’t The College of Policing Be Better Behaved?

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry

I thought that Policing was much about Right and Wrong, making sure people do things right and prosecuting (other methods of Disposal are also available) the ones who didn’t.  Am I very wide of the mark there?  Simplistic I know, but I find it’s best to keep things simple where the College is involved.

Then, if this is right, shouldn’t the College of Policing be teaching the Police the best ways to uphold the Law and make sure everybody knows their Rights from their Wrongs?  Surely they should be a Law-Abiding Limited Company, shouldn’t they?

So, on the 15th March when I sent them a Freedom of Information request in relation to their National Undercover Policing Scrutiny Panel, they had BY LAW until 15th April to reply.  I had a response from Steven, Ethics, Integrity and Public Interest Co-ordinator acknowledging my request, and the attached letter (which actually had Steven’s full name on it, unlike his casual response) said “Your request will be considered in accordance with the...

Police: People Of Northumbria – Have Your Say

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry

Twitter was ablaze yesterday, well, smouldering at least, with news that the Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, Vera Baird QC, had made a sizeable donation to a charity that she herself is apparently a Director of.

Many news sources claimed that Ms Baird was being investigated by the Ministry of Justice for her actions.

Many questions were asked of her by the Twitterati, but as far as I can tell the only answer she felt able to provide was that the story was wrong and had later been corrected by the Press. Many seem to see this scenario as a conflict of interest.

Indeed the Daily Mirror went further and said Companies House records show Northumbria’s Chief Constable Sue Sim – under investigation by Ms Baird over bullying claims – is also a VFN director, sparking further conflict of interest concerns.”

At various times, in various places, the amount donated, the status of the charity (I.e. is it registered with Charities Commission?) and whether or not Ms Baird was indeed being investigated...

Police: Oaf Fait

Written by RSS Poster The Magistrates' Blog
A charmless young man came before us charged with assault, having punched the referee in a game of park football. Spectators on the touchline were shocked and someone called the police who duly arrested and charged the assailant.

Our colleagues at the early hearing adjourned the case for the preparation of pre-sentence reports, with a view to a community penalty. Twice he failed to turn up for his interview, then when he finally deigned to attend his behaviour towards the probation officer was so confrontational that she terminated he interview and submitted a so-called 'non-report' to us. His extensive list of previous convictions showed a propensity to violence,  so we took the precaution of putting him in the armoured-glass dock  in case he kicked off again.

We decided that there was no future in the community sentence route, so we sent him to prison for 18 weeks, reduced to 12 weeks as credit for his plea. I hope that he learns a lesson from this episode.
