Simon Corbell has announced that police statistics are all looking great on the lead up to the election.
- “I’m delighted to announce that ACT Policing has met or surpassed all of its response time targets when attending to incidents across the Territory,” Mr Corbell said. “This is a commendable result and one that ACT Policing should be proud of.
“This improvement in response time reflects the additional resources provided to ACT Policing by the ACT Government as well as the implementation of an improved rostering system.”
The trouble being that the organisation being judged is collecting and assessing it’s own statistics. So police stats tend to move around on the basis of political imperatives, rather than actual improvements or deteriorations.
Having said that, it’s entirely possible that everything has improved dramatically thanks to brilliant political leadership and policing .
And, if so, congratulations everyone involved.
(Now any chance ACT Policing can get back to publishing media releases on its website?)
