Stating The Bleedin Obvious

Reading Time: 2 minutes Those of you who follow this blog regularly will no doubt have noticed something a little unexpected about it. The College of Policing are pushing the ‘new’, ‘better’ Entry Routes above the more traditional Initial Police Learning and Development Programme (IPLDP). Lancashire PCC Andrew Snowden, in an interview with Police Oracle, has firmly criticised the […]

Police Uplift Programme – Now I’m REALLY Confused

Reading Time: 3 minutes A short while ago I wrote a post about how I couldn’t take the Police Uplift Programme seriously. As a result of not being able to take it seriously I sent an FOIA request to the National Police Chiefs Council. You may recall that the National Police Chiefs Council has previously released a set of

Police Uplift Programme – The Resignations

Reading Time: 2 minutes I am grateful (just for once) to the National Police Chiefs Council for publishing some data on the Police Uplift Programme. After some hotly debated data published by somebody else they have finally acquiesced and published, what they claim, are the correct figures. Hmmm I remain to be convinced on that one, more later. There

Smoke & Mirrors Chief Constable Style

Reading Time: 2 minutes How many times have we heard “Crime is down, Police Reform is working”? Ad Nauseum I suspect. Police Reform has turned out to be an unmitigated disaster, devised and forced through by inexperienced politicians and their hired help. Politicians who have no experience or idea of how Policing works then compound that with a stunning

An Open Letter To @PoliceChiefs

Reading Time: 3 minutes You are, by definition, all senior Police Officers, yet you seem to have lost touch with the fine officers that form the Front Line. As you are obviously aware, when the Conservative-led coalition came to power in 2010 there were 142,363 Police Officers in England and Wales, excluding BTP, or 145,015 if you include BTP.

Mixed Messages From @NPCC @Police_Now @MetropolitanPolice and @CollegeOfPolicing?

Reading Time: 2 minutes I’m old, I’m confused and my brain hurts. Firstly, the much-revered College of Policing has proposed completely shaking up the entry route into the Police Service; The three proposals are Proposal 1. Establish a qualifications framework for policing so that individuals can gain recognition that has meaning and credibility Proposal 2. Opportunities for existing officers

To Double-Crew Or Not To Double-Crew?

Reading Time: 3 minutes That is, indeed, the question. To me the answer is an unequivocal YES.  In my mind there is no option, it doesn’t need thinking about, it’s a No Brainer. But then, my mind doesn’t always sync with everybody else’s. It occurs to me that it’s nearly half a century since my boots hit the streets

Playing The Hand We’re Dealt

Reading Time: 2 minutes A number has been bothering me recently, a number that I simply can’t get out of my head, but I don’t know what the number is. What is the number where the Police Service of England and Wales can no longer function? How many more officers can we shed before we reach that number?  Because

A Post-Apocalyptic Dawn

Reading Time: 4 minutes Well, it’s taken 4 years but the Horsemen finally seem to have earnt their corn. The votes have been counted and verified and I can announce that the winner is Theresa May. Results in Wales are not set to be announced until Sunday but it seems that the Tory Machine has won the day.  Having

Policemen (& Women) Don’t Prevent Crime

Reading Time: < 1 minute So says Sara Thornton, top Johnny at the National Police Chiefs Council. Well I’m not going to take up much of your time today, just a little bit longer than it takes to say “Bollocks”. What I will concede is that it isn’t easy to quantify the amount of crime that a Police Officer prevents
