    In my day job I frequently have to act as an advocate for victims of crime dealing with the police.

    One of the main issues is the failure to record and investigate crime.

    A reduction in crime figures is I think partly to blame for the ‘investigate to record’ policy which has now been identified by the HMIC as an area of concern,

    The HMIC are saying that crimes should now be recorded straight away. What was happenining was that although a crime was blatantly obvious, officers would go away to conduct investigations to decide if a crime had been committed and would never return leaving the victim with an incident number but not a crime reference number.

    In one case it took me 6 months to have a client’s crime recorded having gone through a Sgt, Insp and Ch Insp.

    It was not until a complaint was submitted that the crime was recorded, the suspect was arrested and admitted several TICs.

    This process is also going to put off victims who do not have the will or tenacity to persist in having an allegation of crime officially recorded,

    How long can we realistically sustain an overall decline in police numbers before the sh1t really hits the fan???

    Came home to find Theresa may had sent me an email (as below), It is her version of reality, Nice to know what she is saying to the faithful, needless to say I’m not making a donation to teh Conservative Party.

    We want to make Britain an even safer place to live, work and raise a family.

    Parents want to be sure their children are safe, pensioners want to feel secure in their neighbourhoods, and people deserve to be protected so they can work hard and get on in life.

    Under Labour, the police were bogged down with too much paperwork, meaning cases were often not dealt with and the victims of crime neglected. People didn’t feel safe on the streets.

    But thanks to our action plan to tackle crime, and the hard work of police officers, crime is now down by more than 10% since 2010.

    We need everyone in the country to get behind our plan – so please add your name today.

    Our action plan to tackle crime is helping to give people greater security by:

    Freeing the police to fight crime by cutting red tape and scrapping unnecessary targets
    Giving criminals tougher sentences so communities are protected and justice is done
    Giving the police the powers they need to tackle criminals, using the latest tools and techniques
    Stopping people from becoming criminals by tackling the root causes of crime
    Making the police answer to the community to help drive down crime in your area
