And another one?

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Regular readers will know I’ve not been the biggest fan of senior officers. There have been  only a few I have had deep, honest respect for, ones who I know I could have relied on to back me up in a tight spot & ones who I honestly believed weren’t in it for their own benfit.

Embarassing news for Thames Valley Police this week as one of their Chief Superintendents has been arrested on suspicion of arson, fraud & perverting the course of justice.

The case stems over an incident where Chief Superintendent Jim Trotman reported that his police hire car had been set alight. He was arrested at work at Chad Valley’s (in-joke) HQ when he arrived for work last month. He reported he had been the victim of an arson attack & named a barrister who he alleged was having an affair with his wife as the main suspect. The investigation centred over an insurance claim he made in relation  to the ‘arson’.

It will be interesting to see how this one pans out.
