The above is a simple outline of what one shift did last week. Some of the jobs lasted merely a few minites, some lasted an hour or more. All the jobs were done by one shift which included 1 double-crewed car and 4 single crewed cars plus a few PCSOs and covered two reasonably sized towns. A double crewed car with Specials assisted for the last 4 hours of the shift. Although I said it was typical, it does vary from day to day, sometimes there is more disorder, sometimes more complaints about motorcycles, sometimes more arrests than this day.
