Bad cops

Daily Mail - - News -

IT WOULD be a mon­strous mis­take to let grad­u­ates be­come po­lice de­tec­tives af­ter just three months’ train­ing (Mail).

For starters, their knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence comes from univer­sity — and not the univer­sity of life.

Their aware­ness of the lo­cal vil­lains would be nil, their knowl­edge of the area in which they served would be nil and their dex­ter­ity in in­ter­view­ing sus­pects would be nil.

If the po­lice want to fill the rank of de­tec­tive, might I sug­gest an in­crease in pay and, above all, an ap­pre­ci­a­tion by man­age­ment for their de­mand­ing roles.

LES CULLEN, hedge end, hants.
