Posted in The Job - Comment by 200

I’ve had such a manic set of shifts that, to be perfectly honest, I’m too shagged to write anything  involving what might require some semblance of  brain function.

Suffice it to say, I’ve written a couple of similar entries recently, if you want to know what this week’s been like, check back, only I think this week was worse.

Whoever decided that an inspector who sits on his arse all day juggling figures should have primacy over front line troops & be able to send them off on meaningless arrest enquiries just so his department looks good, while people are sitting at home in fear of getting beaten senseless or waiting 14 hours for us to attend their ransacked house or 4 days to interview their children who have been approached by a potential sexual predator, should have his photograph & explanation put on the front page of every newspaper in the country.

Sometimes I’m just fucking ashamed to be part of this shower of shit.

    Sounds like a crap shift. Don’t let it get to you mate. I asked my tutor some 20-years ago what was the most important quality of a Police Officer, expecting: honesty, integrety etc.

    ‘Stamina… To keep wading thhrough the bullshit’

    Keep blogging- keep going- not long to go now!!!

    200, know how you feel mate, our whole team fully fucked off with the whole thing, fewer bobbies than the minimum safe level, no replacements/probbies in sight and a new CI in the figures department who seemingly does not see taht there is more out there than detections and more jobs on the box than ever. I love this job but right now could jack it in if i had something else i could do instead. Right now I’m very low on the bullshit stamina.

    Just think, tomorrow is a different day. Perhaps some one will run that particular inspector over…

    No shower of shit, just the troops trying to do a good job in spite of th idiots in “command”.

    All you can do is keep buggering on in an effect to keep your little corner of the madhouse as sane as possible. Every decent job completed is a little bit of Good put back into our otherwise-screwed society.

    I know how you feel benno- I am actively looking for another job and re-training/doing voluntary work too.

    I have reached my limit.
