Police agreement signed for 2013

By johnboy - 25 June 2013 14

Simon Corbell has announced the signing of the latest policing agreement with the AFP, which he says include raised performance targets:

Mr Corbell, the Australian Federal Police (AFP) Commissioner, Tony Negus, and the Acting Chief Police Officer for the ACT, David Pryce, signed the 2013-14 Purchase Agreement today.

“The Purchase Agreement includes key performance indicators focused on levels of crime, police responsiveness, crime prevention and road safety,” said Mr Corbell.

“The Agreement also sets out the government’s expectations of delivering a professional, accountable and transparent policing service to the ACT community.

“This will ensure the continued delivery of high standard policing services in the ACT,” he said.

The 2013-14 Purchase Agreement has introduced further ‘stretch’ targets in the areas of levels of crime, police responsiveness, supporting the judicial process and crime prevention.

It also includes an additional three new key performance indicators. They deal with the referral of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to restorative justice, quarterly reporting of complaints against police, and an amendment of a perceptions of crime measure, which focuses on the percentage of people who feel safe by themselves in their neighbourhood at night.

In addition to this purchasing agreement the gummint is cutting $15m from the police budget over the next four years.As far as raising performance targets are they inferring that the plod haven’t been performing up to scratch until now and need to lift their game?Can’t be good for morale if that’s the implication.

They’re raising targets because most KPIs are being met. The fact they are raising the targets while cutting 15m from the budget is bizarre, in my opinion.

I’d suggest stupid and idiotic which sums up most of Corbell’s policies in relation to justice and policing.

I may be wrong but that says to me that there have to be outcomes that have to be achieved (a quota)

True, but they a far, far less interesting than you think. The road safety performance measures are on p10 of the agreement. KPI’s 20-23 look suspiciously like they require ACT drivers to be less honest than the national average.

Oh, I completely agree. I actually have no interest in the Police agreement whatsoever, It was just a slow day thats all and not much was happening at that time. Nothing picks up the day like getting people fired up over something inanely.

Who got fired up? You made an inaccurate comment, I asked a question, you answered it.

“… that tells me that the Police have performance quotas to fill, eg We must book 150 motorists per month or our budget drops etc etc…

The full set of road safety performance targets, to address compliance with Canberra’s 352 Road Rules, is:
1. Number of road crashes resulting in death per 100,000 population.
2. Number of road crashes resulting in injury per 100,000 population.
3. Percentage of persons who self-report to driving 10km per hour or more over the speed limit
4. Percentage of persons who self-report to driving while not wearing a seatbelt.
5. Percentage of persons who self-report to driving while suspecting they are over the prescribed alcohol limit.
6. Percentage of persons who self-report to driving when using a mobile phone.

“Self-report”? Wft does that even mean?
Is someone going to travel above the posted speed limit and then doddle themselves off to the cop shop and admit to it? If it – which I suspect it does – refer to someone being pulled over and then admitting roadside they were in the wrong, why not just use nice simple English and say “…admit to…”

Was there a donut clause?

Okay, cheap shot, but I couldn’t help it…

16.2 The annual Purchase Agreement will set outcomes to be achieved,key performance indicators (KPI) and costs for providing the service, In the event that the parties have not signed a Purchase
Agreement by 30 June in any year/ the parties may agree to the terms and conditions of an interim Purchase Agreement.

I may be wrong but that says to me that there have to be outcomes that have to be achieved (a quota), Key performance indicators have to be met (How quickly you get the quota done) and costs for providing the service (What it costs the taxpayer for your new toys so you can achieve your quota).

As I said, I may be wrong but thats how it reads to me.

Really? Show me the part of the agreement that says that. There are no quotas, but if there were, why would that be an issue?

BTW I love how they are raising targets while cutting 15mil from the police budget.

The media release says, “The 2013-14 Purchase Agreement can be found online at http://www.justice.act.gov.au/criminal_and_civil_justice/act_policing

When it does become available at that site, can someone tell me how many of Canberra’s 352 road rules it mentions?
