I read that some of the 43 police forces in England and Wales face a “big challenge” to make cuts without taking officers from the front line, the chief inspector of constabulary has warned.

Sir Denis O’Connor said two thirds of officers were directly involved in protecting the public and enforcing the law – although not all were visible. Ministers say savings can and must be made while protecting the front line.

I guess if we have fewer officers involved in transexual reach out and persecuting motorists and more concentrating on preventing burglary and the like of invasive crimes then that would be a good result. The UK Police must look closely at their bloated bureaucracy and perverse priorities  – cuts might just help them focus on what it truly important.

  1. I read that some of the 43 police forces in England and Wales face a “big challenge” to make cuts without taking officers from the front line …

    What front line? The one in the canteen?

    The police union was yesterday raising the dread spectre of officers with 25 years experience being “forced out”. Yeah, losing 25 years of diverity awareness, cultural sensitivity and other Marxist piffle will really hit society hard.

    Strewth, trousering a fat pension in your 50s is one reason why they sign up in the firs place.

  2. I have mentioned my belief that the Police Force is being transformed into a branch of Social Services, rather than “Upholders/Enforcers of the Law”.
    The more caring slogans they write on the sides of their BMW’s
    the more you know they don’t.
