Police Commisioners?

Recommended Posts

Wasn't he the Tory candidate ?

 

what difference does that make? Was that Maggies fault too or something? All of these Police Commissioners are surrounded by hangers on and matey matey  people

The stated idea was to "democratise" the running of the Police. The motive was to place a firewall against blame, between the Government and the people; even though the Home Office really control them.

Your probably right Baz, they would have all appointed friends, but if it had been a Labour commissioner you would have pointed out the political connection. :wink:

And now this subject gets even better....there is a article on today's Guardian web page where Cheshire police are wanting applications to fill 5 posts on an audit committee to scrutinise the department of the Cheshire Police Commissioner. It's great ,i love it ,an even bigger waste of ratepayer's money !

An interesting google for the googlers; would be : How many folk were on the old Police Cttes and how much did it cost V How many are now employed by the new PPC and how much does it cost?

Policing is supposed to be non-political, the election of Police Commissioners have instantly changed this. Many have been elected on a political ticket. Some people are also right in stating that a number of them have employed friends/cronies as their assistants/lackies etc. What really worries me is that they have the power to hire and fire Chief Constables. What qualifies them to do this?

This is a quote from the Conservatives home page regarding Police Commissioners.

 

"We are working with police forces to drive out wasteful spending, and increase efficiency in backroom roles.

We will work with Police and Crime Commissioners across England and Wales to find new ways to cut red-tape and waste,"

Article in the Guardian about another new post that our Police Commissioner is creating.... a Youth Ambassador on nearly £24k per annum. Applications are now open for the job.

This is absolutely disgraceful...... he is 23 (so hardly a kid) and should be on minimum wage....

 

This joker of a free-loading commissioner needs kicking out and the money spent on bobbys on the beat. He has apparently spending 700 grand a year on his staff alone!!.....

So we've been conned by the CONservatives, who brought this nonsense in.  Problem is, will any of the other candidates next time change anything and get rid of the trough?

Utter waste of £23k. Who will speak to him? I doubt the 'kids'' will. I am guessing that the commissioner's back room staff will be toiling tirelessly to maintain the status quo. What else could we spend £700k on? Has anything changed?
