    and i wonder if this chap whos van is sitting on the travelers site,rings his insurance company and they in turn contact the police for the details wil agree with the police and pay out without any hesitation.
    or will it be sorry chap youve lost your van and WE AINT PAYING,so the poor b.ugger loses out twice.


    was watching a cop show a few days ago(no doubt a repeat)where they chased a car into a travelers site,they got the car back but they absolutely s hit themselves when they all started comming out of there vans.they got out of there sharpish like.
    and the 2 villains who dispersed into a caravan got away with it. :confused: :confused: :confused:

    The average police officer will spend 3 1/2 hours processing the relevant paperwork, even for a very minor offence. A police officer would prefer to be out on patrol rather than sat at a desk.....people seem to forget that!

    They will be filling out Intel forms, crime reports, missing property forms, information for intel operations, shift admin paperwork , the list goes on.

    All this for a kid stealing a lipstick from a shop! The average officer will spend approx 50% of their working time in a police station, when they want to be on the job. About 20% of their time is on reassurance duties. Now none of this is down to the police officer.

    The reason you dont see many officers on the beat is because most patrols are taken from a vehicle, for obvious reasons of getting to crimes quicker. Officers are also always doubled up for safety reasons which is pretty obvious these days.

    The police themselves are governed by lots of new rules and regulations that prohibit they way the general public would expect things to be done. In ideal world we would all like to see more of a polce presence, but in this day and age its a rarity.

    I'm not having a dig at you Snico. You seem to be suggesting that they "feel sorry" for themselves and that maybe we should too!

    I really don't have sympathy for the plight of the police. There may well be elements of truth in your argument, but it doesn't explain why they feel it appropriate to prosecute so many soft targets (with all that paperwork you refer to) , kill innocent bystanders (including their own livestock) and then do all they can to sound as though they've investigated the incident without anyone actually being properly disciplined or carrying the can. Nor does it explain why they employ people with "'isms" which make them potentially unsuitable for their position, and who definitely require close monitorig. Etc etc etc.

    There is no feeling sorry for themselves. Your average officer wants to be out on patrol and not sitting in a station filling out paperwork, It would be ideal if civilian administrators could do this job but with cutbacks on the horizon there is no chance of this.

    Should there be more police officers? yes of course there should. More policing could then be done. Cheshire averages approx 5000 crimes /reported crimes per month, they have approx 2200 active police officers. Obviously these are not all on shift at once, so you can see the amount of policing that is required if all these crimes are dealt with with in the way the public expected which would be quickly and thorough. Its just not possible

    There have been many officers nationwide who have left the force because they spend their working day at a desk, thats not the officers fault is it?

    Maybe, but I stand by the charge against them of spending too long on soft targets at the expense of more pressing criminal activity.

    No, but it is clearly a problem when some officers (of ranks across the spectrum) who should go don't, and their incompetence is allowed to continue.

    most of the police come from the same background as the crooks, and they stick up for there own kind

    Do we go back to the 'Life on Mars' days, of busting doors down and 'slapping up' perps ? Probably not, but I do think that respect, and indeed a bit of fear, has gone when it comes to the police these days. By all accounts the police have too much admin to wade through these days, which apparently prevents them from being out on the beat more.

    And when they are out, hit the soft options and ignore the more serious crimes, especially if it involves travellers.

    Precisely. Same amount of paperwork but less hassle at the coal face. And less value.
