Priorities for the Police
TRAFFIC police are being awarded points for arresting law breakers in a new system to boost productivity.
Officers in the Thames Valley have been set a minimum haul of 200 points a month, with different crimes attracting different points. Under the scheme, police will be given ten points for arresting a rapist or burglar compared with five for a motorist talking on a mobile phone or not wearing a seatbelt.
Says it all doesn't it about priorities - so if you are driving in the Thames Valley watch out!
