I wonder if?

27 Jan

I start a short period of leave this morning. When I come back to work on Tuesday I wonder if:

1. The DFS sale will have ended

2. Frank will have been found guilty on Coronation Street

3. Policy Exchange will have replied to my letter and said Blair Gibbs has accepted my invitation to meet with injured cops at The Police Treatment Centre & The Police Rehabilitation Centre

4. There will have been no more negative spun police bashing stories in the media

5. The Home Secretary will have made a decision, after a 3 week delay, around the decision of the Police Arbitration Tribunal and whether she will honour it or ride roughshod over it

Which is the most likely?

    The new militancy in the NYP Fed newsletter is welcomed. The launch of the campaign to coordinate the NYP police officer voting block and deliver the perhaps 10,000 direct and 20,000 to 40,000 votes indirect votes with our influence on communities and friends in the Police commissioner election, enough to decide the election, is also welcomed.
    Our prime responsibility as warranted officers is to the Crown and Public not the NYP Directorate. Where a management culture becomes so detached from the capability to deliver its basic function , in our case an emergency response service, our representatives have an obligation to request direct intervention from the crown. The impending new fiasco with the new duties system will coincide with the accumulated exhaustion caused by the current shift pattern and join what seems a never ending list of fiascos. We are all tired of the circus that NYP has become. Our culture seems seems orientated to individual self interest not the team public service ethic.
    In real terms the Directorate can no longer guarantee that officers parading across the county will attend incidents fit for purpose. The delivery of a Police emergency response service in North Yorkshire has become a daily lottery.
    If the reader of this has not read the NYP newsletter this month, read it. The facts below speak for themselves. The 5 band 4 rest day shift pattern delivered not just the police reforms but also record crime falls. It worked. The 4 rest days within this pattern essential.
    The likely impact of our shift pattern based on a comprehensive study of 5000 police officers :
    46% had “nodded off or fallen asleep while driving”;
    • over one-quarter reported that this occurs 1 to 2 times a month and more than 6% said they typically fell asleep at the wheel at least 1 to 2 times a week;
    • over 40% tested positive for 1 or more sleep disorders, most commonly (33.6%) obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), a potentially fatal affliction that causes the airway to close, leaving the victim choking or gasping for breath.
