Is The College Of Policing Selective With Its Communications?

Reading Time: 2 minutes I guess we’re all coming to terms with the College of Policing, and frankly I’m glad that I don’t have to concern myself with it unduly. We recently (12th March)  heard about their National Scrutiny of Undercover Policing, but in reality that panel had their first meeting in July 2014. Had anybody heard about this

Policing Under Theresa May – Some Undeniable Truths

Reading Time: 6 minutes While I sit and ponder my future I found myself thinking about a couple of ‘Improvements’ that Theresa May has made to Policing.  My experience and knowledge is really linked to the Met, so if I say something which does not extend to your Force please forgive me, unlike Ms Khan, any unfair generalisations are

CofP National UC Scrutiny Panel – Sophie Fights Back

Reading Time: < 1 minute As most of us are #BlockedBySophie I’m guessing that most of you won’t have seen Sophie Khan’s quite reasonable defence as to why she’s on the UC Scrutiny Panel.

Sue & Sophie – What Have We Learnt?

Reading Time: 4 minutes Sorry to keep banging on about it, but I happen to think it’s important. We’ve now had about 48 hours since the news broke that Sue Mountstevens and Sophie Khan are part of the panel looking at Undercover Policing.

Another #Donut For Tom Winsor Please

Reading Time: 2 minutes So, the first (or the first that I have seen anyway) results of Mr Tom Winsor’s famous Police Fitness Tests have been released by the College of Policing. Out of 30,000 officers from 39 Forces, sorry, Services, only 851 ‘failed’ although the tests do not become compulsory until next year.  The national police lead for

Reading Time: 3 minutes Somewhere round about the middle of December I wrote about the loneliness of the Rural Police Officer in Dyfed Powys Police. You can find it here if you haven’t already read it. Then I found this article here about how the Dyfed Powys PCC has secured £44,000 in funding to set up a Centre of
