The Neighbourhood Policing Team for Waterhead and St James got together to issue Delta drivers with high definition dash cameras to assist in capturing evidence should they encounter youths who are causing damage to vehicles.

Super!  

 

I think they should get rid get rid of all but essential overpriced, boys' toys vehicles and make most bobbies go back to the humble bicycle. They'd be fitter to carry out their duties as a result and may even catch more criminals instead of hiding in their cars eating doughnuts.

The huge problem now as compared to thirty years ago is the vast amount of paperwork that officers have to complete for every arrest, stop and search etc. Essentially it means that one shift means one arrest as that's all that there is time for.

The police force needs a good old fashioned time and motion study carried out as that's the root problem which has been papered over with PCSOs, Specials, and civilian volunteers.

Auto ticket fill-in. Attach helmet cam function, file it all to be processed by back end staff.

I was quite struck during the election of the Police Commissioner here, that all of the candidates had tackling low level anti-social behaviour as their top priority, and none of them had online crime as even a footnote. Meanwhile the police themselves were announcing that they were shifting resources to focus more heavily on online crime. There's a very stark contrast between what the public want the police's focus to be, and what politicians (and lapdog journalists) want.

Not Manchester. Our PCC has his own twitter and social media staff member. 
Oh no wait that's using social media not dealing with the fallout or anything else online.

I have the boxed-set - and must confess that I enjoy it on a regular basis.

And so should every wet-behind-the-ears trainee-plod that ever dares to set foot in Hendon...!

Can you imagine the lines now.  Instead of

"We're The Sweeney, son, and we haven't had any dinner. You've kept us waiting, so unless you want a kicking you tell us..."

it would now go along the lines of

"We're The Sweeney, son, and we have loads of paperwork to fill in. Don't bother reporting it, we will just keep you waiting forever....

doesnt quite have the same sense of urgency

They should blow the budget on a few Ed-209s.

But make sure they're optimised for the UK by giving them a truncheon and whistle and getting them to ride about on a bike.

Plain clothes police should race around streets in Ford Capris and Ford Granadas, upsetting apple carts and large stacks of improbably empty cardboard boxes stacked on the pavement, like they always did in the 1970's.

Agreed.

But only if they narrowly miss some live chickens - and the two blokes with the pane of glass.
