Police strategic plan for 2008-11

By johnboy 13 August 2008 50

The Australian Federal Police have released a strategic plan for the next three years.

At three pages of content it is perhaps, a little lighter than some might expect. But it lists the following as objectives:

    — Closer integration of police with the community to promote mutual trust, assurance and the active cooperation of the community. (Still waiting for a media release on your website since Friday fellas)

    — Delivering effective policing strategies to prevent, detect, investigate and prosecute crime and address the perceptions of crime and safety in the community.

    — Maintaining a capability to focus and coordinate energy and resources at key points in key moments in time to achieve specific law enforcement objectives.

    — Embedding a customer service culture that ensures the delivery of compassionate and respectful police services to the public.

    — Creating a workforce that delivers a professional policing service, that contributes to afP capabilities and embraces professional development opportunities.

Thankfully i have only had to call the police once in my lifetime, and te time i did it was for a very minor incident and can say how impressed i was with the police responding, on the phone and appearing in person.

And am i the only person who does see the police on the road in marked and unmarked cars.

Maybe im just haveing lucky days when i do see them and have had to call them.

Maintaining a capability to focus and coordinate energy and resources at key points in key moments in time to achieve specific law enforcement objectives.

This basically says being in the right place at the right time to catch bad guys. This is what most cops would rather be doing – targetting areas where crooks hang out and commit crimes and then catch them in the act.

If you don’t see a Police car in your suburb that is a good thing.

Yes we can’t get new stations until the GOVT funds one, yes we can’t appropriately deal with mental health problems until the GOVT does something about it. Do you see a theme here???????

The GOVT doesn’t give a rats arse about their cops or crime levels here. They don’t allow the cops to do their job properly.

So before bagging the cops, give the GOVT some first. They make the decisions, they tell the cops what to do.

VG, actually I am very pro police. Also very pro law and order. Just very disappointed with what is passed of as one in this town. Yes, have seen some good stuff by them. Also seen some appalling stuff. Instead of being an apologist, why don’t you take the feedback onboard in rour daily pursuits. Now log off and get back out ino the cold and protect us from ourselves!

You have shown yourself to be anti-Police and dismissive yourself in the past. Don’t get all antsy when someone is as passionate with the opposite view. They gave no indication but I bet they did something, you probably just didn’t know about it. When you answer 1000 calls a day see how chipper you are each time you answer.

Aside from that your attitude is borne out in your posts.

….and I take none of this personally. FFS I have heard a lot worse to my face and its water off a ducks back

… and yes VG, I gave them all that info about the guy. And they gave absolutely no indication they would follow it up. Creating an expectation can reduce community disquiet.

bigred 10:48 pm 14 Aug 08

Well it worked for me. I now know I am on my own if, in a very rare circumstance, I get in trouble and so act accordingly. And it seems VG thinks AFP are just like a pay TV company call centre and should treat people accordingly. Lemme think a bit here. Me: “Hello AFP, just got robbed by a masked knife wielding bandit” AFP operator: “Sorry but you couldn’t identify them so take this number and f#$% off”.

nah – twas a while ago now. Like I said – I don’t bother ringing now.

Don’t take criticism of the phone answerers so personally. noone has said you don’t work hard. I was trying to explain why people might be a bit miffed.

It is all very well to go on about all this great work that is being done that we never see. And to endlessly talk of prioritising. But I was trying to illustrate for you why people get annoyed with the lack of service, and perceived lack of police doing anything.

To me cold-shoulder = dismissive.

I have definitely had rude responses when I used to ring.

vg 10:24 pm 14 Aug 08

Sorry but all I read was cold shoulder. No one said dismissive and definitely no mention of ‘rude’, but don’t let that ruin the story.

Its funny though that for all this work that the Police apparently aren’t doing they are still a very busy lot. Someone must be ringing with something important, getting through and receiving the service they want and are having Police attend.

Give me a yell next time you start work at 6pm and go from job to job to job for 12hrs. Mind you it must have been in my imagination because apparently everyone gets fobbed off. You obviously haven’t rung the ATO Help Line, Foxtel, or any mobile phone co. to report a fault.

If you don’t like the service you got report it to the Ombudsmans Office
