Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. About time too, it's a bugger sneaking 200 DF's out of the gate these days.
     
  2. Seems a sound action when there will be little or nothing to police, bunch of thrushes anyway.

    I wonder, should I be concerned about these cuts? Will the safety of our bases be lessened, will crime soar?

    Perhaps we need a measure of how effective MoD plod are - number of arrests made as compared to local Police Service? (I know that'll be comparing arrests per day to arrests per 20+year career)

    A review of the types of crimes they are involved in? (exhaustively checking cars for valid parking permits compared to keeping public streets safe?)

    A comparison of MPGS to MoD plod - cost/role? (Both armed, both 'guard', one gets paid a lot more for doing, not a lot more?)

    I think MPGS and MoD Plod share the same C2 and funding, so perhaps we could get more of the former to make up for less MoD Plod? I have a feeling we mightn't be any worse off.......
     
  4. Bet they wish they got amalgamated with the Service Police in that failed review of defence policing from a good few years ago
