According to the Daily Mail

Officers will be forced to name any friends who work in the media… or face the sack

The guidance from the College of Policing is something we would commend all our members to read.

But we would expect the same level of scrutiny transparency to apply to the media AND -think tanks-AND politicians AND –lobbyists


And lets remind ourselves of the comments in Jan Berry’s report


The police service is accountable and records need to be kept. Some bureaucracy, enough to run an efficient

and effective police service is necessary, but extra layers of bureaucracy have been created to

meet the demands of scrutiny and quality assurance, in times when budgets are being cut, the

question needs to be asked, what is affordable?

Seen in this context, is this an imposition too far?
