ACPO Plc.

I see that the association of chief police officers (ACPO) are coming under fire for their £500g jolly. Rightly so in my humble opinion.

Like most senior officers for many years, only a very few would have any actual experience of on-the-street policing these days. They are business managers in every sense and therefore they think they should behave like business top-rollers, i.e. they hired a luxury coach, complete with mounted escort and armed response vehicle escorting it, to save them walking half a mile to their luncheon venue in Manchester!

ACPO Plc is funded by us up to £10m annually. When all forces are expected to cut front line officers, how can this be justified.

  Perhaps, like John Prescott, they were afraid that the wives would have their hair messed up by the gentle breeze!  - Wonder if they put the hairdressers bill on expenses as well??!!  

 They justified the conference  as "a vital and rare opportunity for chief officers, Government and police authority members to debate how best to keep people safe".

  Might I refer them to the message sent to them by Theresa May, after she scrapped red tape and targets.

  " I couldn’t be any clearer about your mission: It isn’t a 30-point plan, it is to cut crime. No more, and no less."

ACPO Unelected 5th Estate.

ACPO and ACPO Scotland is a bit like an unelected 5Th Estate within the Body Politic of the UK.

It advises the government of the day on all police matters. But this term - ’Police Matters’ takes in all sort of things that years ago ACPO wouldn’t have even been involved in.

It’s a strange old world, and ACPO was at it’s ’best’ during the Miner’s Strike. The police being used to keep people away from those areas of the country where the coalfields are..... smacks of a police state....

Oh! I forgot under the Liarbore Party we really were ’sleep walking’ into a Police State.

I wonder what ACPO’s response will be if and when ’Call-Me-Dave’ and the Limp-Ducks actually do repeal some of the more draconian legislation that B’Liar and his Marxist Muppets put in place.

I have still to gain the answer if all this ’Legislation’ was all Liarbore’s ’Own Work’, or if it was implemented on instruction from the Kommie Kommizzars of ’Moscow Central’ located in EU-SSR Land, Bruxxelles?

ACPO plc

I imagine that the same sort of rules apply to these CPO’s as to Senior managers in large companies. Many moons ago, when I was employed (not worked) by London Underground, I used to have a sign on my locker which read:
"Do not be intimidated by Management,
They only have their jobs because they cannot do yours".
