This is the official blog of Sgt Ellie Bloggs, a real live police sergeant on the front line of England. It's not the official opinion of my police force, but all the facts I recount are true, and are not secrets. If they don't want me blogging about it, they shouldn't do it. PS If you don't pay tax, you don't pay my salary.

Here's a starter for 10.

North Wales Police have lost the plot. We all know that traffic officers have been using a points system for a couple of years now (when I say we all, I am assuming we all watch Road Wars, which is where I do most of my research). It always seemed fairly harmless for traffic - they have little else by which to measure their performance.

For those of you who can't be arsed to follow the above link (most of you are police officers, after all), they are now working on a points system whereby you get 10 for an arrest or detection, 10 for giving out a fixed penalty notice, and - my favourite - MINUS 5 for unreliable intelligence. That will teach PCs to be lied to!

But now Supercopnanny has arrived in North Wales, and Mummy and Daddy have taken her advice a little too literally.

Within minutes of Supercopnanny's arrival, she is horrified by the way the Senior Management Team discipline their PCs, and she sits down to have a serious chat. The trouble, she identifies, is that there is no praise. She recommends for the SMT to get rid of the daily nitpicking emails that criticise every little thing the PCs do, and to bring in a Points system so that the PCs will know when they have been good.

The PCs quickly identify that their time spent on investigations that are going nowhere and placating traumatised victims is time wasted. Since an arrest and a ticket are valued the same, instead of spending 4 hours arresting someone, transporting them to custody, fighting with them, booking them in, and going back to get statements, they simply give out a fixed penalty ticket to a passing motorist.

But when Supercopnanny returns to see how things are going, she finds that her plan has rather backfired. The SMT are up to their ears in complaints, undetected crime and they have no way to gather intelligence about drug dealers or impending terrorist plots, as the PCs have cottoned on that unreliable intelligence is the key to their downfall.

Supercopnanny takes out her crayon and paper and thinks again...

Whatever happened to the police preventing crime rather than running around trying to get points for finding offences? It s a bit reactive.
I work in the public sector as well and it seems that as soon as you have effective policies to meet your targets the targets are then changed for no apparent reason. It's a load of s***.

The same individual performance figures are monitored closely everywhere. It seems that unless management introduce some sort of system to monitor their staff they somehow feel inadequate. You rightly identify that the core of our business would not attract any points under said rules and this has always been the difficulty for them to comprehend. How many hours of comforting a grieving relative, waiting for undertakers, dealing with RTA's, assisting mental health teams, social services, local authority, would be required for recognition? It's not a question that has an easy answer and this is why they concentrate on the easy stuff that forms part of what we do, but not the majority of what we do.

I am surprised they have time to second guess and criticise in amongst all the counting they must do. Who ever allowed senior officers access to Excel and Powerpoint really needs a good talking to.

Tonto, indeed whatever happened to police preventing crime, the answer is that you cannot count prevented crime. Most police officers would rather be proactive, BUT the odds are stacked against us.

Robert Peel, over 150 years ago said "The test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with it"

Hear, hear !!

Another thing that individual performance figures causes is officers shafting their collegues with low scoring jobs.

Well I'm off out to lock someone up for a section 5 public order, arrest, ticket/detection, intel (this person drinks and is rude will do) crime report, incident OIC now thats real policing like the public want to see :-(
