  • 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.

    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

    Taxation is just a sophisticated way of demanding money with menaces.

Full serial banking attic.

We certainly have things right in this country with our constant support for those from around the globe wanting to come here because they have got nothing in their own countries and they see the clear and obvious benefits of getting housing, education, benefit and welfare support, medical treatment and a whole host of other support from the myriad of organisations that abound in the do-goody world of making sure that the UK comes a good second on the list of things to do today. Soon we will be full. Soon the services we have have taken for granted will not be able to cope. How reassuring.

I am further assured when I read how our legal processes are reducing crime and making the law abiding citizens feel safe and be safe to add to the way that crime is just not tolerated. How nice to see that finally, there is a custodial sentence for a serial offender. I feel sure that this will reassure the family of Tina Boucher, 38, a mother of four, who died instantly in a smash while two other passengers suffered horrendous injuries. Her six-year-old son Martin, who miraculously escaped nearly unharmed, sat in his booster seat sobbing ‘Mummy, Mummy’ as the driver and his friends jumped out of the other car and ran off.  Devon Pinnock, 21, was jailed for eight years after pleading guilty to causing death by dangerous driving while disqualified. Just think of the sentence if he had not pleaded guilty. He should never have been on the streets in the first place after it emerged he had a string of convictions for dangerous driving starting at the age of 14.

It also appears that the choice banking system of a few people is under the threat of collapse after it emerged that things might not have been done completely in accordance with this thing that is the law.

I would not like to have been the exhibits officer on that one. 

Next time you hear mice scratching about in the loft, it is worth having a bit of an open mind about what you just might encounter when you enter the loft hatch to have a bit of a look. You never know what you might find. Do you know what you have in your attic?

  1. Fully agree. I’m sure the sign at Dover says “Come on in, free housing, money, and the ability to do whatever you want!”…

    Only thing that suprises me about the joyriding bit of the article is that he then wasn’t able to claim for compensation against the familiy he crashed into. The UK legal system is a f’ing shambles at best…
