31st January 2008 Reacting to publication of the police service strength report published today, Jan Berry, Chairman of the Police Federation of England and Wales, says: “We are bitterly disappointed that, despite assurances of record numbers, we saw a fall of 647 police officers in England and Wales during the six months to September 2007.This at a time when ring fenced funding for CSO’s was extended for another year, and we saw an 80% increase in CSOs between October 2006 and September 2007. We had predicted this, but take no pleasure being proved right. “However the real kick in the stomach comes from our chief officers, who instead of demanding no decline in police officer numbers, trumpet an increase in police personnel. They may be prepared to sell police officers down the river, but we will fight to ensure that the politically independent multi-skilled police constable remains at the heart of policing.” ACPO: OVERALL POLICE PERSONNEL NUMBERS UP 0.8% 31st January 2008 Commenting on the release of police service...
Paul Routledge of the Daily Mirror has quite obviously had a bad experience or found himself on the wrong side of the law, because this article he wrote for today’s issue of the Mirror has absolutely nothing intelligent about it what so ever. Almost as if it was written by a juvenile delinquent who is trying to throw some mud and make it stick.
He bleats on about how the protest in London was an illegal strike by the Police!! Please Mr Routledge take your head out of your ass and grow up!! Unlike tabloid journalists we have standards, integrity and a degree of professionalism!!
Don’t try to say how 950 officers attending from Manchester constabulary can throw doubt on the fact that the Police are understaffed, people are entitled to have time off work!! remember we have to work 7 days a week and will have rest days on a week day.
And for your labelling the Police as impertinent, surely that is the pot calling the kettle black!!!
Below is a story taken from the Telegraph online, the same story is being run by the Mirror also. Unfortunately I don’t have the photograph that was printed in the papers that shows the horrific injuries sustained by this poor lady.
Amazingly the culprit was sentenced for manslaughter only 2 years prior to this for taking part in kicking a man to death in a similar incident and was somehow on the streets again.
When will scum like this be dealt with exactly how the people of this country want them to be dealt with? quite frankly we are pissed off with the system! it doesn’t fu#*ing work. Prison is better than most of these peoples own homes so they are more than happy to be sent there. Maybe we should sub contract our prison service to somewhere like China.
I now have some images of the terrible injuries sustained in this dreadful assault.
A killer released early from prison went on to launch an horrific attack on a woman just three miles from where Garry Newlove was kicked to death by a gang of teenage thugs.
Someone I know has contacted me to ask me to post this on my blog! He is 100% trustworthy and your identity will be kept secret. Below is a copy of the email sent to me.
I am researching a book about modern policing in the United Kingdom. For the book to be accurate and informative I would like to include the thoughts of some Police Officers, PCSOs and support staff on the subjects I am covering. To that end I am looking to speak in the strictest confidence to Police Officers, PCSOs and support staff from across the country, from a variety of ranks, roles, specialisms and lengths of service. Recent retirees would be welcome. Interviews will be conducted in absolute confidence, preferably face to face or by email. Your name and personal details will not be requested or used. Anonymity is absolutely guaranteed so interviewees can speak freely. If you are interested in contributing, please email me at [email protected] To help me select a cross section of interviewees, please provide in complete confidence your rank, specialist unit if applicable,...
