I thought theft was theft !

Post by Handy Andy » Fri Feb 02, 2018 2:44 pm

So it seems that most police forces will not persue or attend cases where the value in question is below £200 as it's "not practical" due to resources available.

Are they therefore telling us that if the amount in question is low they no longer regard it as theft?

£200 for one person may be a lot whereby £10000 for someone else maybe a drop in the ocean. Strange? ,or is it me?

It's a pity that they cannot re-deploy the mobile speeding camera personnel. But that would remove the easy money for the treasury.

To me this means that the police are being forced to become a profit making concern with all the cutbacks they have had inflicted upon them.

If they cleared up crime over night !

This would result in thousands of police; lawyers; judges and administrators being out of work ,the prison guards would have to go back to farming.

Did you know it cost more money to process a parking ticket in court than collected in fines.

All you have to do is plead not guilty and watch the wheels of justice turn.

Just say you vehicle was jamed in.

Not forgetting all the time and money lost by those joakers sitting in court waiting their turn.

You will still have make your contribution after they stop laughing to the partial resurfacing of M1.

Hey! When was the last time y'all checked your battery fluid levels?

If the Police were allowed to keep the money raised by speed cameras, they might be able to redirect it into investigation work.
In Somerset the Police withdrew from the speed camera partnership because they had to bear the cost of maintaining the fixed camera network whilst receiving none of the proceeds which they generated. The fixed cameras are still there, but they have not worked for years and the locals know this.
So much for promoting road safety.
