Campaign to Stop Shite Policing

Posted in The Job - General by 200

On Sunday 25th February 2007 an article appeared in the Sunday Express entitled "Criminal waste of Police Time". It was penned by (then) Detective Constable Johnno Hills of Sussex Police. It was another in a growing list of articles appearing all over the media from the front-line of policing, complaining about the target-driven paperwork-led culture of modern policing.

Rather prophetically one of the last paragraphs reads, "I am not ashamed to stand up and be counted, even if it means losing my job", because, as Johnno’s website says, he subsequently resigned from the force & was suspended (presumably while his resignation was being processed). tells his story and includes a link to an online petition to John Reid to stop the delivery of shite policing.
