When I saw the thread title and who created it I actually thought it was just a thread Neil Down could keep to himself for posting. 

Living up to your name then...:whatever:

Is there a breakdown of how many of the additional crimes were committed by serving police officers?

And Juan Watterson SHK is against that. Wasn’t he Home Affairs before he got his wig? Tells you all you need to know about ehh we’ve not had regular inspections..

Well, why don’t you post my catalogue of catastrophe on here? Feel free, with my blessing. The public deserve to know. off you go then....

The fact  is, the Isle of Man would be better off if we abolished the Constabulary altogether, along with the rest of the Government, and privatised everything. We don't need the police. They need us, and they need to make up stupid fictional crimes to justify their existence. I say, f off. We as an island are just  the right size to be a test study in how to run a jurisdiction without any  government at all.

A bit like Animal Farm?

Will also show his keystone cops aren't as busy and stressed out as they claim to be

Crime and funding come in waves.

More crime, more funding. Crime reduces, they reduce funding which causes more crime. Tale as old as time!

There you have it - from the ex-horse's mouth.  My, it inspires confidence in the local constabulary.:crying:

No story here.

ultimately, detection of crime is a small part of the job, and because it is so low here the focus should be on how the cops are performing in other areas. The overall public safety picture is more important, especially in areas such as our roads

Detection though is everything against whom the crime has been committed against, surely.

I really would like to see more police on our roads but 1. We don't often see one and I live on a main road 2. When they do go by, say once a week, they go by so fast that they seem to miss some things that are going on that people should be 'informed' about such as double yellow parking, blocking pavements with vehicles etc. Still yet to see any neighbourhood police presence.

Totally agree.. I think it was the worst decision ever to do away with traffic cars. The most important part of road safety in my opinion. I'm afraid I still prefer local bobbies and a small station in each village/ town area. Of course we still need an HQ with specialists.

I think that was the strategy under Watterson but then it all changed. It would still be my preferred option as well as at the moment there is never a bobby in these new local places when you need / want one. 

Will Mr Cregeen bring back bobbies on the neighbourhood beat?

He won't do anything. He's a thick, arrogant man totally unfitted for public office who is seeing out his time on the payroll before proceeding to the dustbin of history.

But he's correct.  In a typical shift an officer could deal with neighbour dispute. A missing from home. A sudden death. A car crash. Someone suffering from mental health issues.  All of which isn't crime but still needs dealt with. The police are generally the first point of call for the majority of things. That's not exclusive to the island either.

Fairly sure there is a traffic section with traffic cars, class 1 advanced drivers and unmarked vehicles. Did I miss something?
