CRIME: What can he contribute?

Have your say

At the well-attended meeting of the Spalding East Rural Community Policing Panel held recently at Weston, Inspector Jim Tyner reported on the latest crime figures, which showed a reduction in the number of persons becoming victims of crime.

He added that neither he nor his olleagues were complacent about this situation.

In contrast the address given by Alan Hardwick, the newly-elected Police And Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire, was uninspiring – it contained few details and certainly nothing new.

Perhaps the inauspicious start he made has made him reluctant to promote his intentions with conviction and enthusiasm.

In this period of austerity why are we placing the likes of Alan Hardwick in these well-paid positions when there is little or no evidence that they can contribute anything in the way of progress or new ideas in dealing with current and future crime problems in the area?
