So cuts to the Police force predicted. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-11266059 Whilst seeing the need for severe cuts to public spending and hoping the measures instigated work, this in my humble opinion is a cut to many. For those privileged enough to live in remoter places, whilst not immune from robbery, do tend to avoid anti-social issues. This is not always the way it pans out for many of us and even though I do not live in an obviously "rough" area, we have over the years had our share of problems. Because of my size, capability and back up from family members/ friends, on the odd occasions we have had problems, we have been able to cope, contain, and clear up any transgressions locally. Others are not as capable, or lucky and are not able to resolve their problems. If the size and capability of local Police forces are compromised and downsized, people are going to start vigilante action to resolve their trouble or be overwhelmed in a wave of criminal sh1te.
