Police Panel winds down to just three a year "present team cannot cope" says new Fletton, Stanground & Wooston Chair



UPDATE: POLICE PANELS ARE BEING DROPPED IN FAVOUR OF A 'SOCIAL MEDIA' SOLUTION...MORE WHEN WE GET IT!



Well it didn't take long. The recently appointed (not really an public election, but more a snap Coronation) Tory chair of  Fletton, Woodston & Stanground Police Panel, Carol Harrison, is cutting the number of Police Panel meetings from four to three a year.  She pleads that "twelve priorities are potentially too much for the current team."


BREAKING NEWS:
River recovery teams were out late last night (Monday, September 28th) in Park Farm, Peterborough pulling a vintage motorcycle out of the River Nene.

The owner near to tears as he had spent a couple of years carefully restoring the motorcycle with original hard to find parts, to near showroom condition. Stanground Yobbos had stolen the motorcycle from a locked garden storage shed, wheeled it down to the Green Wheel Footway, but were unable to start it, so they pushed it into the river and ran away. ..

While the recovery team was working, two minimotos roared up and down the Green Wheel. If anyone sees them, take a video or photo, note down, date, place and time. Home Office regulated Park Farm Neighbourhood Watch will send it on.  

HOPEFULLY POLICE WILL MAKE PATROLS IN OUR AREA AND ON THE GREENWHEEL A PRIORITY even if they say they cannot cope...



With the current National threat level at the second highest rating, this seems to be a ridiculous way to behave. Rather than immediately resigning as chair, and inviting others to recruit a team properly able to cope; she falls back on that old political chestnut 'less is more' pointing out "that we are all very aware of the financial cuts (she says savings) pressures [imposed by the Conservative then coalition ] on our police force."

"This is to maintain the effectiveness of concentrating on the priorities arising." Ms Harrison shrills.  Its a bit of an oxymoron, as the Police have over the last year changed the system, and taken to providing the priorities, and getting the public panel to vote on the most urgent ones.

It was also a very useful forum for ordinary members of the public to either publicly or privately exchange views with police and sometimes firefighters.

The sad part of it is that a few council officers, and some councillors, tried several times to impose their narrow cast wishes and party dogma on the panel, and some even disliked the idea of the public having any form of say or holding officialdom to account.

We suggest the ultimate intention is to wind down the whole process, bearing in mind there is a Crime Commissioner election and a local councillor election coming up in May 2016. Perhaps someone will prove us wrong?

We would have published the date of the next meeting in Woodston, usually agreed at the end of the previous public meeting, but its not been released.  Instead email Ms Harrison on hcaarol188@gmail.com  she's not got around to releasing a phone number...
