Today Sir Tom Winsor has claimed that response police officers ‘take nothing home” and that the work of detectives is much more stressful that response officers.

It is a known fact that Detectives and response officers are equally stressed they all have high workloads and increased strains due to the financial implications.

Police Officers regardless of the role they are doing ‘Do take stress home’ and #ITookHome highlights exactly what cops on the frontline are taking home.
ARV Cop #ITookHome the mental image of watching two infant children, the same ages as my own, lose their lives in a roadside ditch.
PCSO Saltash tweeted #IToookHome the memory of watching someone jump to their death from a bridge. #ITookHome the anger of not knowing why I couldn’t help them.
Unusual Inspector tweeted about being one of the first on scene at an air crash that killed 12 people. The smell of aviation fuel does not remind me of holidays.
Plod said #ITookHome the sight of dozens of dead bodies. I can still see everyone of them.

While Clive Chamberlain commented on the sad thing about Winsor’s insensitivity is that many officers have paid the ultimate sacrifice and never made it.
There are many thousands of more tweets sharing what cops have taken home, We have just highlighted a few to show exactly what our cops take home.
Sir Tom Winsor your comments are hurtful to the policing community.
