Don’t you hate it when that happens?

I’ve posted several times about the diminishing service to the public which involves the closing of police stations. One of the unintended consequences of closing a police station is that it becomes just another empty building at night.

Police in Lanarkshire woke up to the realities when one of their nicks got broken into this week. Burglars targeted the police station & made off with a booty of police uniforms & radios. The radios would have been useful until the time they were discovered missing at which point they can be remotely disabled, but they would add an air of authority when worn with the stolen uniforms, even if they weren’t working.

One wonders whether the local chief should have taken some crime prevention advice from his own staff in order to minimise the prospect of burglary.
