  • About me.

    I know enough to know that at 04.00am it gets dark out on the streets. It has done this for the last twenty odd years, to my knowledge and will probably continue for the forseeable future. At some stage in this ‘future’ I shall retire and probably won’t give a damn if it still gets dark at 04.00am. Until then I shall be out there, somewhere, lurking in the shadows because someone, somewhere will be doing stuff they shouldn’t and then, well then I will introduce myself. In the meanwhile I shall try to remain sane and remember why I joined in the first place and try to ignore all the people who piss me off by making the job more complicated than it should be.
  • Opinions

    Any opinions contained in posts are mine and mine alone. Many of them will not be those of any Police Force, Police Organisation or Police Service around this country. The opinions are based on many years of working within the field of practical operational Police work and reflect the desire to do things with the minimum of interference by way of duplication for the benefit of others who themselves do not do the same job. I recognise that we all perform a wide range of roles and this is essential to make the system work. If you don’t like what you see remember you are only one click on the mouse away from leaving. I accept no responsibility for the comments left by others.

  • C.T.C. Constabulary.

    A Strategic Community Diversity Partnership. We are cutting bureaucracy and reducing the recording of target and monitoring related statistics. Our senior leaders will drive small, economical cars from our fleet surplus to save money to invest in better equipment for our frontline response officers. We are investing money to reinstate station canteens for the benefits of those 24/7 response officers. We have a pursuit policy. The message is that if you commit an offence and use a vehicle, we will follow you and stop you if necessary. It is your duty to stop when the lights and sirens are on. We take account of the findings of the Force questionnaire and are reducing the administration and management levels and returning these officers to frontline response duties. We insist on a work-life balance. We have no political masters. We are implimenting selection processes that take account of an individuals skills and proven abilities for the job. Our senior leaders will have one foot in reality and still possess the operational Policing skills they have long forgotton about and seldom used. All ranks are Police Officers first and specialists second. We will impliment career development and performance evaluation monitoring of our leaders by those officers who operate under that leadership. The most important role is that of Constable. All other roles are there to positively support the role and the responsibility of Constable and the duties performed.

    “We trained very hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganised. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganising. It can be a wonderful method of creating the illusion of progress while creating confusion, inefficiency and demoralisation.”......Petronius

    Don't confuse your idea of how important you are with the responsibility of your role.

    If you had to identify, in one word, why we will never achieve our full potential, Meetings would be that word.

SCUM

This is a picture of a lady who is a victim of crime. This frail old lady was returning home after collecting her pension when she was subject to being robbed, known fashionably as ‘mugging’.
She did nothing to invite or incite this horrible offence apart from being an easy target for someone who I describe as SCUM. As a result this lady is in a hospital, in a coma and fighting for her life. This is because of the actions of SCUM.
This SCUM is likely to be a repeat offender.
This SCUM is also very likely to have a drug habit.
This SCUM has absolutely no conscience at all.
This SCUM does not deserve to breath the oxygen we share nor to walk our earth.
This SCUM deserves to suffer an unfortunate and very painful accident.
This lady is not just a victim. She is a mother, probably a grand-mother and has any number amount of friends and family who are deeply distressed and angry that this SCUM has done this horrible thing.
To the victim and her family I wish hope and recovery. That is the least you deserve.
To the SCUM, you deserve nothing, not even a life. I hope the drugs you will probably buy result in an overdose and there is nothing or no-one around to save you. That too, is the least you deserve.

  1. Maybe this is the required response?

  2. Best wishes for a speedy recovery to her.
    My blood boils to think that the scum that did this, when the ineveitable happens, will recive the same level of care & lifesvaing intervention as this lady has.

  3. If they go out in an overdose they’ll be happy until they realise they’re screwed at which point they won’t care anyway because they’ll be high. They deserve nothing more than to die painfully and alone, and completely stone-cold sober at the time. I bet my mortgage that no member of her family is a judge or defence solicitor, but if they are they haven’t change jobs.

  4. I totally agree with you, and especially with P C South West.

  5. No, what will happen is the scum will get some drugs, OD, a paramedic will do the necessary and transport them to hospital. We then reverse the effects and get abused by the scum. They then go back out and are at it again…
