    Good trick; promising to increase visible policing while shedding another 20 officers: https://stratfordobserver.co.uk/news...e-rise-in-tax/

    900 front-line officers for an area the size of Warwickshire isn't particularly good. Take into account, time off and sickness and it starts looking a bit thin... especially overnight.

    And here we have it: https://stratfordobserver.co.uk/news...entre-streets/

    Civilians (busybodies/dogooders/vigilinties/'we didn't have these problems in my day'-ers?) in high-vis jackets waving at CCTV cameras, trying to attract the attention of the area's 2 available police officers (who are, presumably, enjoying a cuppa in the station with their feet up instead of patrolling the streets).

    Even less policing - a lot of it's going to be dealt with over the phone: https://www.leamingtoncourier.co.uk/...ears-1-8613136

    This is going to lead to 'selective' policing, which I didn't think the police were allowed to do. As far as I know, a crime is a crime and the police are supposed to investigate it.

    The one in Bedworth is just token cop shop..the lights are on but no-ones there.
