  1. They are never available when you need one, just like dogs………………..they have made a complete mess of it.
  2. Well detections are gone, it is now outcomes, so that is well out of date. Outcomes have just been updated last month with more outcomes where crimes can be filed as required. I can only tell you what is happening where I work and with others doing likewise, it should paint the overall picture. We now have 3 levels of checking for write-offs: Control Room, Crime Recording Dept & Review Team (made up of DCs & PCs). I thought all forces are bringing this in as part of HMIC review/ best practice. Then we have PPU checking write-offs for all DV jobs, as all DV jobs must have a crime or no crime attached to the incident and only the Crime Recording Dept. can record it………….so we are pretty much snookered, we can't cuff anything that has started as an incident on the computer …………. A crime, is what the public perceives it to be and this can be anything
  3. The reason officers left Response was to get away from dealing with the s**t 24x7………. the trouble now is that CID are now dealing with the s**t as well, due to lack of Response officers so not many want to move upstairs to deal with the same s**t but never get off on time. That is the difference, family life is more important than work & overtime is not as attractive as it use to be, so why move!
  4. Not in my force. All incidents get checked by crime recording team, control room and review team,,,,,,,,,,,so the chances of getting it through the system without putting a crime in are almost impossible. Remember, it does not matter if the officer can write it off, it is what the public perceives to have happened. If they say a crime has happened, then a crime must be submitted. All forces should now be working to these same standards. My crimes have increased by 20% this year & other side of district have increased 30%, with the town centre.
  5. You just can't do that any more. A crime must be submitted and then filed. The days of writing off jobs with no crimes are long gone. We have gone the other way now and if the public phone in and they perceive a crime has been committed then a crime must be submitted. I got a crime the other day when a guy who was on bail, telephoned the police and told the operator what he had said during his interview and this has been crimed………..its madness gone mad now! ………..there must be a political reason why we are criming so much now……..Mrs May is up to something!
  6. We do a similar thing with Drive offs, the garage must fill out a statement on line, copy cctv and then it will get allocated only if there are enquiries to do……..majority of the time, there is never any CCTV and it is a way of making the till balance! We also do it with appointments, if a member of the public want an actual time to see an officer then they have to attend the station………….hardly anyone attends and job gets binned but it automatically gets crimed. ……...saying that, what other organisation goes and visits people 3 to 5 times to try and speak with someone who is clearly avoiding the police and they are the complainants……no one but we do………..we are mad.
  7. Get 25yrs service in and then walk away and you will get pension at 50, if not I believe it could be 60 or state retirement age.
  8. I did hear a C/Supt. suggest a £50 limit but thought the public would turn against the force so it never went any further. This was the same person who told officers to issue D&D tickets but not to arrest them, over a weekend and all paid except one but this got stopped.
  9. Yeap, a 20yr PC taking home less than £100 a day………………..would a plumber, bricky, plasterer wok for that 24/7 a week?
  10. and that other organisations which have also suffered from cuts use us to respond to their incidents………………. Yes, Hospitals Missing from Kids Homes Ambulance service Shops now not emptying security guards Councils…………...
  11. Durham is the most outstanding force in England according to the HMIC........ so CC must be right😍
  12. The 'Conservative HMIC Party' has come out with this rubbish…………………. It is all part of her big plan to hammer the police. Some of the points are 2 yrs out of date………. arrests going down………has the Necessity Test not got something to do with this. Neighbourhood police…….scrapped 2yrs ago in our Force. officers numbers cut…………can't go to all the jobs……………….what rubbish they write in reports.
  13. It is what the complainant, yourself or third party believes, if any say it is racist then that is what the crime will be……………that is how we work.
  14. ………LOL
  15. double post
