It never ceases to amaze me the many & various ways police officers drop bollocks. So it comes as no surprise whatsoever that one of the highest ranking police officers in the country, Sir Hugh Orde, couldn’t manage a simple press release to the Daily Telegraph this week accidentally had private notes about the slashing of the number of police officers, still pinned to the press├é┬árelease.
As a result he has been forced to add the information to his official├é┬áspeech├é┬áto ACPO later in the week.
Orde will reveal that police officer numbers are set to be be drastically cut in the wake of the financial crisis. Tens of thousands of officers are set to go. I won’t repeat the story, you can read it yourself at the Telegraph website.
If numbers are set to be reduced, can├é┬ásomeone├é┬áplease give us the power to tell the countless thousands of people who get ‘threats’ over Facebook to get a life, because the police service will not cope without the ability to prevent officers dealing with shite all day long.
