POLICE? WHAT A CARRY ON
WE once had the perfect policing model and were the envy of the world.
Neighbourhood police officers who worked within their communities knew their beats.
No one needed to draw them a map, point out the vulnerable or send them on a course to spot the obvious.
The height restriction for a man and a woman was intact for good reason.
Children looked forward to visits from their local bobby and many aspired to walk in those noble footsteps.
Our police service has suffered at the hands of career politicians who have seen fit to make cuts and politicise the service.
The police precept in my council tax continues to rise while bobbies on the beat have all disappeared.
The Carry On film Carry On Constable has never been more relevant in today’s “modern” 21st century police service. Darryl Ashton Great Harwood
