Shameful North Yorkshire Police Commissioner renews Chief   Constables Contract 8 months before she is due to stand for re-election

Published

You may not see any problem at first in renewing the contract of Chief Constable.

They are hard working dedicated and do a great job. We are not saying Chief Constable Dave Jones is not one of these policing leaders.

The role of the Police and Crime Commissioner is hold the Chief Constable to account. If the current PCC Julia Mulligan is replaced at the polling stations in 8 months she has denied her successor that right.

The North Yorkshire Police Commissioner has announced she has extended the contract of Chief Constable Dave Jones until 2020.

That sounds fair at first but when you then consider she is due to face the polling stations to keep her role in 8 months that is shameful.

When you consider the main role of a Police and Crime Commissioner is to hold the Chief Constable to account then she should have left that decision for another 8 months considering he CC Jones still has 18 months to run on his contract.

The PCC has claimed that her choice will offer stability for force in years to come.

Julia Mulligan has brought shame to the Police and Crime Commissioner role by annoucing that she had extended the fixed term contract until 2020.

It brings shame to the role because the role of the PCC is to hold the Chief Constable to account.

The extention of that contract means her successor would have no control over the hiring and firing of the Chief Constable because he has agreed to a fixed term contract to 2020.

When asked why she had extended the contract she answered this would provide stability for North Yorkshire Police adding the reasoning was confidential

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
