Police Direct

I have the eGov Monitor on my Bloglines subscriptions because I like to keep an eye on what nefarious plots the police are up to. But I have to say, this innovation looks like a very promising development.

Police Direct is a system for providing subscribers (members of the public) with live information on crime.

The whole issue of moving policing work on to lower-level “Community Support Officers” and the like is a tricky one, which I’d like to get round to looking at in detail, but involving the general public is, as I’ve claimed previously, an unqualified good thing. Well done Suffolk Constabulary.
