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.

Custody Query.

As hundreds of prisoners prepare to move into police stations nationwide to "solve" the prison crisis and ministers everywhere are proposing less custodial sentences, I find myself asking which system of weighing up evidence is the worst - police custody or the courts?

Here is a comparison to help you decide:

Length of time spent on one case:
Custody: up to 24 hours.
Courts: frequently up to 2 years or more.

Number of cases dealt with in one day:
Custody: at Blandmore, between ten and twenty.
Courts: three, if you are lucky.

Number of staff required for each case:
Custody: three - based on custody sergeant, gaoler and officer in the case.
Courts: over ten - three magistrates, one usher, two prosecutors, two defence lawyers, probation officer, clerk, witness care officer, security guard, etc.

Likelihood of bringing an offender to justice:
Custody: I would say well over half my prisoners are charged, cautioned or ticketed.
Courts: I have yet to see someone convicted at court without pleading guilty. If convicted, a sensible sentence is virtually unheard of.

Availability of tea while you wait:
Custody: On tap.
Courts: Highly unlikely.

A resounding victory for the Courts on the scale of crapness. I don't know why I asked, really.

I am told that our force is refusing to take any prisoners.
Most weekends we run out of cell space as it is.

I know this is a bit of an old post, but you must have seen lots of people found guilty? Surely? I mean, I know the entire court system is set up to force you to plead guilty, but some of the people who don't plead guilty must get done for it, sometimes?

Or am I being naive?
