Default The Police aren't just a uniform -a video

A privately made short video, which is captioned:
Quote:
A short video reminding the public of the varied and challenging work of the British Police Service following the recent horrendous changes to the conditions of service, in the hope of also reminding people that the Police aren't just a uniform.

I know a number of SWC members and readers are law enforcement in the USA and a few other places as well, so you may recognise many of the situations.

It was my observation that the thing that bugged people wasn't the work itself, it was the supervisors and their actions. This video hints at that.

Are they really facing such drastic pay cuts?

Carl,

It is far more than cuts in police budgets (85% plus on wages) and have a peek at this short briefing paper by the equivalent of a PBA. Link:http://www.surreypf.co.uk/uploads/Winsor%20Part%202.pdf
In 1980 I was warned by a street cop in Detroit that the real problems for a police officer were inside the station, not outside; which for a British cop struck me as strange, but turned out to have merit.
