I suppose someones got to care.

This officer warns of the dangers of stereotyping

Indeed I am sure the diligent hardworking taxpaying majority at the site must have been appalled at the nefarious activities of those within their midst who dragged their reputation in the mud.

An awareness course might well assist those, like myself, who may have slipped and allowed repeated experience to cloud and sour my judgement.Indeed I am sure Leicestershires finest are causing the Duties phone at HQ to become incandescent as they willingly cancel their leave days to get a place.

Who's that over there?

Just a view on this

It is not made clear exactly how the force in question has phrased its requests for information. However I doubt it was along the lines of a leaflet drop by chopper to Wagners Ride of the Valkyries.

Information on jobs like these rely on outside agencies like landlords/estate agents.
What are we to do? Do we ignore the fact that there is a strong tie to Vietnamese gangs and look to target accordingly. Or do we blather and make every request for information so bland and phrase it 'information is required from every nationality from A-Z' to avoid possibly offending someone.Quality of information will be lost/smothered up in that approach.

This job has found itself avoiding issues over the years in relation to all forms of Crime. There are some big old Elephants sitting in the corner of rooms at HQ's across the country.
I think its time we at least nodded in their direction when we walk through that door.

Shift then drift.

I would like to say that my larger than normal breaks from posting recently are due to my engaging in the saving of the habitat of the Leatherneck turtle or fronting out some loggers somewhere at a patch of virgin rain forest.
However in my patch of the Metropolis my small team of Customer focused operatives have inadvertently tapped into a seam of weariness and time to sit and muse has been tight.
It is a matter of police fact that in every nick there is always the grief team. You walk in some mornings and wince when you hear what they dealt with on the previous shift.It always seems to be them.

I feared recently that there had been a wind change and it had drifted in our direction but now think that was a blip on the grief Radar.
However, the garlands,incense and offerings currently around my computer screen will remain for the time being.

I have noticed that I have drifted into the 60's in my posts.

I started, like many others,inspired by the one and only Coppersblog.
DC has now come out of the shadows and shown his true identity.

Like everyone I had my own image of DC.

I imagined him in his thirties/forties.He once made reference in a post to a chat he had with some 'yoot' He said it was like a conversation between John Le Mesurier and Snoop Doggy Dog.That image stuck since and DC, god bless him was a lot younger than I had in mind when I saw his photo.

He has set a ball rolling and long may it do so.

I Blog and hope to continue to Blog as a means of just getting things of my chest. As I have said before it is a Cyberspace moon to howl at.

Premiership Blogs like DC's, Bloggsy and Gadget have or are moving into print.
Good luck to them.

For the record its not that I lack ambition myself. In fact I have negotiated a column with the Old Curmudgeons (a lesser known North London League Team) on their fortnightly News sheet.

OK, the deal includes washing the away kit every other week but you have got to start somewhere.
