    Emergency Services’ Budgets

    In the twilight of my writing ‘career’ I thought I might try something different, and write about something I know nothing about, budgets. Some may say that I’ve been getting away with it for years, but Policing is something I do know something about, although not as much as the armchair experts obviously.… Read the whole post

    Does Policing Have A Retention Crisis?

    It was only a handful of days ago that I wrote a piece about a potential retention crisis in the Met. That got me wondering if a similar problem existed in Policing in England and Wales generally.… Read the whole post

    The Met in Crisis?

    I may have mentioned this before, but Sir Mark Rowley believes that there is a crisis in the Met.  In particular, he believes this crisis has been brought about  by lack of funding, and poor recruitment. … Read the whole post

    Purdah? What Purdah?

    Just a short one today, winding down, less than 3 months till I finally shut up and leave you all in peace.  With the 2024 General Election  due next month, a whole sector of the population is effectively gagged by Purdah.… Read the whole post

    Stops And Knives

    A week or so ago, one of my e-friends from X was Twitter asked whether I had an update on my comparison of Stop/Searches against Knife Crime. I didn’t have one at that time, but it didn’t take too long to knock him up a quick rough and dirty update.… Read the whole post

    Met Manpower Part 2

    One interesting response to my previous post was that I was contacted by a couple of former Met officers informing me that they really “don’t give a shit”.  I wasn’t offended, but I was saddened that anybody who devoted the majority, or all, of their working lives to the Met no longer gives a shit. … Read the whole post

    Met Manpower
