LGA to establish body to represent commissioners reports Police Professional (23/2/12) in relation to PCCs.
Then in 1/3/12 edition with no hint of irony it laments the lack of impressive Tory PCC candidates of whom over 75% are either current or former police authority members.
Funny I thought police authorities opposed PCCs and those who favour PCCs herald them as new broom getting rid of failed invisible police authorities.
It would appear people on both sides are wrong.
We need to ask whether this is another half baked idea or a reform that will eventually lead to change when concerns like these and those we have raised in the previous 4 posts on this topic have been addressed?
