Changing Places

Posted in The Job - General by 200

There have been enough stories in the public eye recently about senior police officers & the problems they are having/causing. I think they’ve taken enough flack.

So here’s another one.

I can’t wait to see how this one pans out!

Two senior officers in Sussex Police have been arrested on suspicion of nicking bottles of wine from Marks & Sparks in Shoreham after being seen by store detectives.

A Sussex Police spokesman said: “Two police officers have been suspended as a result of a criminal investigation. They were bailed on suspicion of theft relating to an allegation of shoplifting.”

Wow!

I’m guessing it isn’t a simple case of a ‘mistake’ otherwise they’d have been refused charge, rather than bailed pending further enquiries.

Chief Inspector  Sharon Rowe is/was district commander for Worthing and, get this, Detective Chief Inspector Jim Torbet works in the for force’s Professional Standards Department investigating complaints against police officers!

Doubtless this will all have been a terrible mistake & we can look forward to the officers suing the arse off the local Constabulary.
