Also, down in Cornwall, my son works on railtrack. When the team was gathering for a nightshift, a driver came into the parking area in a new car driving erratically before getting out and falling about. He then asked if the workers could find his keys that had been dropped. They called the police and waited 15 minutes and then the police called back and said there was no one available. The work team then just went to work wit the bloke still looking for the keys for another drink drive.
Hopefully, we will get some of the promised new trainee police soon.
The local thieves here know that the response time is at least 20 minutes so break into cars, steal what they want and casually walk on down the road.
There is just one PCSO walking around in Exmouth. Supposed to cover the whole town on foot. i admire that he works for nothing but he has no chance of catching anyone on foot.
Meanwhile, Grandsons scooter is covered in clear tape over the headlight for now. The drunk was allowed to continue hitting passing vehicles on the seafront.
Sunday afternoon we had the police helicopter over the town again. Common for this helicopter to circle around the estuary area but just how much is that costing ?
