Police get new directives

By johnboy - 28 August 2008 15

Simon Corbell has announced that he’s made his annual direction to ACT Policing about what he’d like to see.

Simon says this year’s key points are:

    — Further increasing police response time capability;
    — Increasing police visibility in the community;
    — Implementing measures to improve road safety in the ACT;
    — Working with criminal justice agencies to achieve better outcomes for victims of crime;
    — Working toward a further improvement in perceptions of public safety in the community, with the development of an online reporting and information presence.

What’s Your opinion?

Ah! The good old “let’s blame it on the FUZZ” debate, as obviously if we improve on their work performance and visibility the community will feel a whole lot safer.

What a load of bollocks!!!

Putting the recidivist rubbish on our streets in jail and bringing back institutions for those who need it, will make the community and some of those who need and want institutionilising, feel a DAMN lot safer!

But NO!…I hear the “bleeding hearts” cry….what about their HUMAN RIGHTS? …..BZZZZZZZZZZZ. Wrong answer! The general public largely do not agree with the bleeding heart/do-gooder sentiment/ human rights mentality.

What about the community’s rights to walk the street safely? What about the family’s rights to have the burden of mental health assisted with real and proper mental health capabilities which give those who need it on both sides of the coin a break and real and proper treatment? Most people are sick to death of the “no action/inaction/revolving door policy of the courts and all the bleating welfare/nanny state activists.

Stand up for a better and mandatory sentencing system ZED and base your campaign on “real” law and order and a real mental health system, not the invented statistical based rubbish that the present govt. currently churns out and you will be on the “landslide” winning ticket in the October election.

Here’s another dozen fixed speed cameras!!

Police have nothing to do with fixed speed cameras.

Very valid point Ingee – but I am wondering who are these majistrates that you speak of? Are they in some way related to the Magi-strates?

Conviction rates and sentencing serverity might also go up if prosecutors did a half decent job. Judges and majistrates can only work with what they’re presented with – if it’s crap that’s going in at one end then it’s going to be crap coming out.

Notice none of the directions have nything to do with stopping crooks. As that would require the back up from the Courts

– Any actual improvement in public safety will be purely coincidental.

Actual improvement in public safety must be too hard to aim for.

“…improvement in perceptions of public safety in the community..”

Governments really shouldn’t outsource their propaganda functions to Public Servants, it always ends in tears.

I think we need both. The police can still save you from getting a good conk on the head if they are around in time.

Very true, we do need both. There seems to be no recognition from the government that the court system needs attention. Probably not a vote grabber in an election year.

No matter how good our policing is in the ACT the courts system is stuffed Why improve the first link of the chain when the next one is so weak ?

In my opinion, “shoot to kill” would be a good directive.

GregW 5:00 pm 28 Aug 08

I think someone is getting desperate to get some ‘good news’..
