Good effort, poor results

I’m not sure who’s in charge at the Adver but just a day after Mr Brown launched the red nest’s local election campaign emphasising increases in community policing, the Adver has chosen to highlight the very same thing. However, much though the red nest like to crow about how much of our money they poor into various activities and gimmicks, what matters are results. The evidence at the moment is that all the extra money spent on Police Community Support Officers has had no tangible benefit.

Spending our money and getting nothing as a result is something I would hope no local politician would be proud of. I fully expect to be disappointed over the coming month.
