Money Well Spent

Posted in The Job - General by 200

So who’s done the latest tranch of NCALT Diversity Training?

I think this training should be given to Mr Soap & Mrs Miggins, they could be invited along while all the police officers who cover their town are off the streets being paid to listen to the training and then they should be asked whether they think it is good value for their tax money. I bet I can guarantee what the answer will be, and it won’t be the same as it would be from our ‘Diversity Officer’.

Eight hours training. Amount on ‘Diversity’? 2 hours. Amount on new law? one minute (and that was a line of information that religion is now an aggravating factor for some offences the same as race is, delivered during the diversity training). Which of those is more important for most police officers to do their job? I’ll give you a clue, learning that Christians base their beliefs on the Bible and information delivered at the level my primary school children had in their lessons will not stand me in good stead standing in front of a judge explaining why I arrested Sam Shite for defrauding the local benefits office (OK so I don’t arrest anyone these days unless it’s on a rest day off duty, but you get the picture).

And we have more diversity training to come (at least 4 times as much as the last input). Fantastic.
