The Problem With Our Police

"Something has gone seriously wrong with the way we carry out policing in this country", so says the Daily Telegraph, commenting on a report by the Audit Commission and published today by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC).

Commenting, the Daily Telegraph writes: "It is not "inevitable", as Sir Hugh Orde, the president of the Association of Chief Police Officers, said recently that budget cuts will mean fewer officers on the streets. A better use of back-office staff, many of whom release the police for other duties, could save hundreds of millions without affecting the frontline.".

Exactly - and the government could start by disbanding Orde and bloody ACPO!

Just saying..................

As I understand it, ACPO receives funding from taxpayers money. If that is so, then just by stopping payment, this anti-democratic organisation would, hopefully, wither and die.

Donning my tin foil, I think that the CP in the middle somehow sums up this mob.

jic, that response to the problem is too simple for our political elite to consider.
