I agree with the last speaker

So police chiefs are√ā¬†saying that they accept that there need to be a cut in police numbers as long as police officers are freed to get on with policing & not√ā¬†following√ā¬†centrally issued guidelines & targets.

Well welcome to the√ā¬†club√ā¬†Mr Orde, President of the Association of Chief Police Officers. Some of us have been saying that√ā¬†publicly√ā¬†for five years. This is the same Association that has for the last five years & more bent over backwards to accept every target & every dictat spewed forth from the Home Office like a puppy lapping up √ā¬†someone’ else’s sick & then gone running to the high street to bank the generous bonuses for achieving their targets.

“I was only following orders.” Where have I heard that before?
