"I have long argued that the giving of offence, and even hate speech, should be a moral matter but not a matter for the criminal law. That is as true on the football pitch as on the streets. We should always challenge racism. We should also always challenge attacks on liberties in the guise of faux antiracism." Kenan Malik

Still Waiting For Response From Police Authority…

Surely basic and straight forward questions aren’t that hard are they?

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am interested in whether you would like to comment on how a 70K resettlement package has contributed to fiscal efficiency and police effectiveness?

Obviously I am referring to this article about the outgoing Chief Constable http://www.edp24.co.uk/content/edp24/news/story.aspx?brand=EDPOnline&category=News&tBrand=EDPOnline&tCategory=xDefault&itemid=NOED06%20Nov%202009%2018:38:05:857

According to your ‘Norfolk Police Authority Vision & Principles’, your vision is to “To provide the best police service for the County, meeting the needs of our communities, within the available budget.”

Now with the cuts in social services currently being forced on the community by Norfolk County Council I was wondering whether or not the cuts should actually come from council tax paid to the Police if the above is ‘the norm’?

Looking forward to your reply.

Any day now…perhaps they’re outsourcing an agency to formulate an answer at a decent price…

    What is the point in ACPO? They serve no purpose other than the political posturings of top Police Officials.

    Police Chiefs, if we MUST have them, should be elected by the people and come from the same area as the constabulary.

    And as for throwing money at them…..balls to that!
