    Yes – come on you Met/DPS guys ‘n gals!

    Why do we need to rely more and more for the truth on whistleblowers or FOI requests or revelations issued under Parliamentary privilege?

    Isn’t it time we all put the truth first and blew our own whistles?

    Don’t only let those ogres above – who it seems more & more should be swept away in a cleaning frenzy – speak on your behalf.

    As in the NHS, your organisation is yours too. It really ought to be far more yours than those collecting often-bogus bonuses atop the pyramid tip.

    No-one on high should abrogate to themselves any proprietary right to speak bland Yes’s as if from you.

    Your experience must be represented in discussions of policy and improvements.

    All we’ll ever hear from the high echelons is “all is best in the best of all possible worlds”.

    Yet it’s obvious that “all is not best on the front line of all affordable worlds”.

    If the NHS has been ‘given permission’ to encourage whistleblowers, call the Governments bluff – there’s never been a better time.

    The floodgates now just need a nudge.

    If many bands (of top brass) make lies work, far more (grass root) hands will make lies ‘shirk’..

    • Thank you

      Those employed within Professional Standards have no excuses if they do something wrong, they are employed in that role to ‘get it right’ and there is no place in a modern world for trying to gild lilies. We are supposed to have progressed beyond that. Wrongdoers need to be dealt with regardless of the department they work in. Simple really.

    DPS ‘complaints’ data breakdown, Feb ’14:

    http://www.met.police.uk/foi/pdfs/priorities_and_how_we_are_doing/corporate/dps_bsmi_february2014.pdf

    + FOI snippets..

    “For the period from February 2013 to January 2014 the MPS has received a total of 1,745 internal complaints, known as ‘Conduct Matters’.

    Conduct Matter –
    Any matter which is not and has not been the subject of a complaint but in the case of which there is an indication (whether from the circumstances or otherwise) that a person serving with the police may have
    (a) committed a criminal offence
    (b) behaved in a manner which would justify the bringing of disciplinary proceedings

    Our internal Complaints and Discipline System only began to record reports of ‘Wrongdoing’ within the last year but we cannot guarantee that they have been accurately recorded in the correct format as complaints are received through various channels, line managers or through the ‘Rightline’ system where the informant does not need to identify themselves.”

    [Hope you can make more sense of this than I can – if it’s of interest..]

    The parliamentary debate was incredible and amazing about MPS PSD. The response from MPS leadership was nothing short of pathetic, with reputation management first – on the basis that the “storm would blow over” and not attract public attention.

    I have only watched the first 11 minutes, but it reminded me of the treatment I personally received from the DPS during my police service. They are unscrupulous liars who use the law and regulations when it suits them and when it doesn’t they ignore it, safe in the knowledge no-one holds them to account.

    In my last year in the met I found myself under investigation as a result of allegations I made against my corrupt and dishonest management team. DPS did nothing about my allegations (apart from threaten me with action if I kept on making allegations) but when my managers fabricated allegations against me they went right in to bat on their side. On the day of my interview they eventually disclosed 130 pages of evidence expecting me to flick through it in no time at all. They ignored medical evidence from my own GP and the MPS psychiatrist about my fitness to be interviewed, and called in a tame FME who after a few minutes of questions deemed me fit to be interviewed.

    They were very surprised when I totally lost it in the interview and they had to terminate it forthwith!

    There is lots more, such as investigating allegations of harassment, bullying and other conduct issues fabricated by my managers and only coming up with 2 e-mails that they deemed unacceptable from all this mass of evidence. But when the case went to a hearing DPS tried to write up the facts as I having conducted a campaign of harassment against my managers. Funny that they tried to claim that when their own investigation showed the managers who made the allegation had made it up. But they still tried to mislead the hearing with perjured facts.

    I could tell much much more about the DPS, but that should be enough to give a taste of what they are like and their usual MO. I would happily name certain guilty parties with great pleasure but that wouldn’t be fair on Alan’s blog.

    But one thing I can tell you………………………..my story is not isolated, a rare event. No, it is being repeated all over the MPS with lots of officers having to go through the stress of being investigated by a unit who are not fit to shovel shit in the local shithouse.
