slim said:I fully agree with the need for better detection rates, however the police have an extremely difficult job to do making ensuring that motorists are not travelling too quickly. Occasionally they do strike lucky and find one of these motorist has been out thieving. More plods on the beat, more rewards for information leading to convictions.
The reality is that that there are so few plods checking up om motorists that driving standards are falling badly. Policing motorists has been left to the flash bang cameras.
I would agree that we need to get more of the policvemen we have out catching vilains, but there are none left on traffic to steal.
There are two things we need to do to dramticaly cut crime and the impact that crime has on every day lives, firstly improve significantly the detection and conviction rate, and secondly solve the drug problem.
