  • 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.

  • 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

Motive Question

A  woman, while at the  funeral of her own mother, met a guy whom she did
not know.  She  thought this guy was amazing.  She believed him to be her dream
guy, so much so that she fell  in love with him right there, but never asked for his
number and subsequently could not find  him.  A few days later she killed her sister.
Question:  What was her motive for killing her sister?

  1. Whenever I see one of these puzzles, I think it’s impossible to come up with the correct answer because it’s not a closed world problem. There could be any number of reasons unmentioned why she killed her sister which had nothing to do with the funeral, the man or the lack of a telephone number. Perhaps she thought she could divine it from her sister’s living entrails?

    I read too many fantasy books…

  2. I have never seen this puzzle before, but the obvious answer is that she wanted to see if he would turn up to her sisters funeral.
    It’s the way I think after 30 years in the job.

  3. She failed to stop at a pedestrian crossing, where her sister was crossing.

  4. you listened to ricky gervais on xfm too then….

  5. Easy- so he’d come to the funeral and she could meet him again.

  6. Yes, that was my take too…. to see if he turned up again

  7. Heard this one on the radio a while back.
    It’s a diagnostic test for psychopathic tendencies.
    Anyone who gets it right should maybe think about
    consulting a brain-care specialist or similar.

  8. Perhaps I am so psycho, I deliberately got it wrong?

  9. @Tony F

    Or maybe just a clever psyho ?

    What horrified me about this is that when I tried it on a couple of mates, whose world view could most charitbly be described as somewhat cynical, they didn’t get it. When I tried it on my 10 Y.O, daughter, she said, after about one second, “oh but that’s obvious …” and got the right answer ! arg !

    PS sorry whichendbites if I nicked your punchline.
