Confidence in police is on the up

First published in News by

POLICE say good progress has been made on last year’s Police and Crime Plan with confidence in the force having risen to 76%.

The number of burglaries across Avon and Somerset has fallen by 1,766, and satisfaction among victims of anti-social behaviour stands at 82%.

However, reported incidents of domestic and sexual abuse have risen by 6%. Police say this is because people are becoming more confident to report to the police.

Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “Over the past year the constabulary has met nearly all of the objectives I set them and, importantly, despite a number of national police issues confidence in your local police service remains high.”

The news is good Sue, and no doubt all the people of this area would agree that you have done an excellent job, and will no doubt continue to do so. Now please can you update the public on the 28 Avon and Somerset Police officers who were dismissed or told to resign over "Misconduct"??????. Last time the paper mentioned this it stated that you were looking into the legalities of naming these individuals. Especially one officer who was dismissed for (quote) using abusive language and telling a colleague to throw something out of a Police car. If this officer ordered their colleague to do something, they must have been a superior?. Was this a file marked Restricted Access, detailing a so called neighbourhood dispute, which was mysteriously then found and handed into the Bridgwater Mercury offices?. All very fishy - are you going to open up this can of worms for the public Sue????? What was in that file???.
