  1. Overstretched officers are having to act as a last line of defence Is it time to say enough is enough? https://amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/nov/29/police-force-cuts-mental-health An interesting point here: “Now consider the people we cannot identify and quantify – the callers who couldn’t get through because the police were busy dealing with those 8,655 calls. What if they too were vulnerable, and some almost certainly were? What if they came to significant harm or even died – and they may have? Where was our duty of care to them?”
  2. My town had 18 officers on the beat 10 years ago. Now there are four. The service we provide is woefully inadequate - but not for the want of trying... https://www.theguardian.com/public-leaders-network/2017/may/20/police-cuts-fewer-officers-unrelenting-pressure
  3. Nurses, teachers and firefighters will be thousands of pounds worse off a year in real terms by 2020 https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jun/19/the-guardian-view-on-public-sector-pay-time-for-a-rise?CMP=twt_gu

  5. I may be taken for granted, but there's nothing like being a special constable I’ve been a volunteer cop for more than 20 years, often without thanks from the public or regular officers – but I get a real kick out of making a difference... http://www.theguardian.com/public-leaders-network/2016/feb/27/special-constable-volunteer-police-officer A good little read from an anonymous SC I stumbled across today. I think a lot of the words will resonate with many of us who give up our time. Hopefully the writer is with us here!
  6. An official watchdog is investigating allegations that senior police chiefs running top-secret covert operations victimised three lower-ranking officers who challenged their competence and conduct. View the full article
  7. Idea for a press conference: someone stands in front of New Scotland Yard and fixes the cameras with a serious look, before appealing for information relating to possible crimes carried out by former occupants of that building. Perhaps the mere sight of the edifice, or its old Scotland Yard predecessor, could trigger memories that could help with inquiries – or, indeed, launch some eye-catching new ones.

  8. Figures published today show black people are up to 17.5 times more likely than white people to be stopped and searched by the police in certain areas of the UK. This enormous disparity is no great surprise. The issue of stop and search has dogged the police service for decades, sparking riots in Brixton in 1981 and in various parts of the country in 1985. Despite Theresa May, the home secretary, pledging to tackle the issue, there has been little faith that much would change. What is surprising about these figures, however, is which police forces are the worst offenders. View the full article
  9. A children’s summer camp has been shut down after a man was arrested on suspicion of possessing indecent images of minors, police said. LL Camps, a private holiday camp based in Hertfordshire that describes itself as the “first and only American camp in the UK”, announced its closure on Thursday. View the full article
  10. Police officers Loran “Butch” Baker and Elizabeth Butler were investigating a suspect at his home in Santa Cruz, California when he shot and killed them in 2013. Before fleeing the scene, the shooter was believed to have stolen both officers’ guns. The Santa Cruz sheriff at the time, Phil Wowak, doesn’t think their deaths could have been prevented, but does think the department’s response would have been faster, more efficient and more accountable had they had access to connected technology.

  11. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-32726099 What a complete non story. For years this has been dragged out by the Guardian claiming that Prince Charles has been influencing policy, it just seems to be an anti royalist agenda. There's nothing wrong with backing British farmers and our armed forces. He was asked for his opinion and he gave it.
  12. It's news articles like this that make me realise just how lucky we are to live in a civilised society. How that can ever be a genuine punishment handed down by the Government and allowable under the laws I do not know. This isn't about punishment it's much more than that.
