Thirty Years In The Job… Bob’s Thoughts On Police Commissioners

POLICE COMMISSIONERS

The advertising has begun,

About the candidates that will run.

A nice salary and a company car too,

And there’s very little we can do.

Keep an eye on the Chief and the Force,

Take part in lavish lunches of course,

Reporting back to Government a daily task?

Rather hiding behind an expensive mask.

Super heroes I think not! White elephants at their best,

Will voting for this be done with zest?

If the turnout for voting is really low,

Will the government stop this now and shout, ‘No?’

Or will it simply happen driven forward with speed,

After all this campaign will have cost us a fortune indeed.

Will we ever get to know the number of votes cast?

Or simply it’s inevitable, this will be passed.

Policing is already top heavy, there’s too many at the top.

We don’t need another ‘would be’ cop.

We need officers on the street, money well spent.

Not an over inflated commander’s tent.

If you believe it will make a difference to Policing, it won’t!

If you are considering voting my advice is simply, ‘DON’T’.

  • I don’t know Harry, I’m at a complete loss and for the life in me I can’t see why anyone in their right minds would think this will work.
