Police: A dramatic drop in violent crime?

Written by RSS Poster A Just Future: Fair for All
I attended the annual Grant Thornton Police Conference, hosted by Paul Grady, yesterday with Bernard Rix. The event for Police & Crime Panels that Bernard and I ran last autumn got a good plug as did the thematic investigation into PCC transparency that CoPaCC carried out with sponsorship from GT. I am most grateful for the invitation to yesterday's event: it was a good day to learn more about the auditing of police constabularies and OPCCs, as well as network with a number of key people (including Tim Passmore, PCC for Suffolk).

During the day, one person highlighted the headline in yesterday's Times: Shock drop in violent crime and noted that the police were not mentioned at all as being a contributory factor. This prompted discussion as to whether the police are always the best at promoting their successes (which was a theme picked up on by Bernard later in the day).

However, the story is far more subtle than that. Two blogs I have spotted this morning: Is the rising cost of alcohol behind falling violent...

Police: Two teenagers charged with Birmingham city centre assault

Written by RSS Poster Crime and Justice - UK Crime News

Two teenagers will appear in court tomorrow (Friday 25 April) to face accusations that they attacked a 25-year-old man in Birmingham city centre just before Christmas.
They were arrested following a public appeal by detectives in January, who released CCTV stills of people they wanted to trace in connection with the alleged assault.

The victim suffered a cut to his eyelid, brusing to his face and a graze on his wrist at 7.15pm on Monday 16 December on the ramp near McDonald’s and New Street Station.

Two boys, aged 15 and 16, who cannot be named for legal reasons, will appear at Birmingham Youth Court in the morning charged with assault.

Police: What The Flying **** Does The Met Think It’s Doing?

Written by RSS Poster RetiredAndAngry

I should think you’ve all heard by now the latest sorry chapter in the James Patrick saga.

More Disciplinary proceedings. Why?

I know what for. Appearing on BBC’s The One Show and giving a radio interview on Five Live without the Job’s authority. Under the circumstances, who would actually have granted that authority?  Yes, I know James is still a serving Police Officer and as such is still subject to the discipline regs etc until the day he ceases to be employed by the Met, but is this really Gross Misconduct? Is this really a sackable offence?

I have frequently used the word VINDICTIVE in relation to the way in which the Met have pursued James. I have heard other people use the same word, and then this evening I read a Channel 4 news item that suggested that the Met wanted to sack James rather than allow him to resign in order to put him on the newly formed list of officers who have been “Struck Off”‘

Now that’s VINDICTIVE.

I have received a lot of messages from serving and former...

Police: National campaign launched re Syria

Written by RSS Poster Crime & Justice - UK Crime News

Today, Thursday, 24 April, Senior National Coordinator for Counter Terrorism Policing Helen Ball, launched a national campaign aimed at starting the conversation about protecting our young people from the dangers of travelling to Syria.

The event, held at New Scotland Yard, was attended by women from community groups, Prevent workers and representatives from the Charity Commission. It was aimed at encouraging women to reach out to other women who are concerned about young people who may be planning to travel to Syria. DAC Ball urged community representatives to continue the conversation within their communities so that we can all play a part in protecting our young people from these risks.

Similar events are being held across the whole of the UK today in an effort to reach out to as many women from the affected communities as possible. To support the campaign, a leaflet has been designed which outlines the risks of travelling to Syria and will be issued at ports across the country.
