Unwise Chief Constable statement?


Recommended Posts

And just how many ‘managers/supervisors’ there were, with many roles from Sgt and above superfluous and unnecessary. Which is partly why there are so few ‘bobbies on the beat’.

Don’t get me wrong Derek. I see lots of some aspects of Police work. Don’t envy anyone in the job.  Three things. My personal views. 1. No-one should be allowed to retire from public service

Yes yes, that’s exactly what it was.    (it wasn’t). 

Let's face it, the last few governments have brought our beautiful home down to close to rock bottom and still they spend OUR cash on vanity projects, massive overburden of govt. and CS  for what is a

You don’t see many other government departments crying in the media about being short staffed though. There is allegedly a Sgt in charge of the ‘new’ computer system ‘team’ who has been there in that position for over two years now. Just totally unnecessary. Amongst others.

they are over staffed with non jobs sharing  10 peoples work among 30 , but the actual doers in public is where the shortages are, plenty of needless office bods trying to look busy.

Cregeen will be making a statement he is just sorting the letters out from his Alphabetti Spaghetti.

It’ll be days before he realizes he only has spaghetti hoops

The pubs all being shut should take the pressure off a bit.

Perhaps it would also make sense to suspend the cannabis laws for a while. Then the mail wouldn't need Policing. That must eat resources.

 

Who says the police are the ones that police the mail?

1 CC

3 Supt

4 CI

12 inspectors

40 something sergeants 

the rest constables.

in General terms, the force is about 10% too small, taking into consideration its isolation and resilience needs for training and sickness.

FWIW it was good to see Gary make a comment of public support of his staff.

You’re out in your figures Derek. There are now 5 CIs, 14 inspectors and 41 Sgts at the least, according to last years annual report.

On the face of it out of about 220 coppers that's quite top heavy assuming you would count Sgts as management style grades.

Plus, possibly, there are  sergeants, inspectors, or chief inspectors, who, unlike Del, were sent on specialised training, at the expense of the force/taxpayer, just before their retirement from the force, and then, with lump sum in hand and pension in payment monthly, were reemployed in civilian capacity to discharge the role they’d just been trained for.
