Does anyone else think they totally waste their time?

Today i was walking down the road, and 2 police cars, and six police bikes were escorting some guy in another police car. Now all well and good the guy needs to be safe, but does he need that many?

The government are moaning about knife crime, and the suchlike, when they are escorting people around with police, more than actually seem to be in my area.

Maybe i'm being dim, but surely they should stop messing around and actually get out on the streets and make a prescence.

In the last few years i've noticed the number of police in cars rise, and on foot just, well there aren't any.

That sounds a bit OTT , just to escort some bloke!
They should be like they used to be in the old days where they used to clip little thugs round their ears, and take them home to get a good hiding from their fathers lol

traffic cops are a waste of time

not police officers in general. they do a bloody good job and dont get paid enough.
especially community support officers! they dont even get a panda car.

Why does it take so many officers to escort someone?

Seriously if two officers cant hold a guy down in a car with cuffs on, they should be policemen. lol!

i don't think members of the public actually realise how understaffed police are and how much they actually have to do.

everyone always mentions "i saw 20 officers escorting 1 bloke" etc (slight exageration) but have no no essence of what's going with it. they never notice all the rest of the work they do.

unbelievable how ungrateful some people are for our emergency services.

sitting in a lay by eating mince pies waiting for 72 year old Doris tootling past doing 32 in a 30 is a waste of tax payers money.
so cos she is old she is allowed to break laws? they do eat in their cars though..cos they rarely take meal breaks.

i've heard of a guy who needed 6 officers to restrain him and he was still getting up! methamphetamine is a powerful drug. they had to use anasthetic to restrain him!

not everything is black & white ffs

course i do, my parents are in the emergency services - and theyre the first to admit traffic officers dont have half as much hassle as your regular 'on the beat' bobby.
not that i dont appreciate what they do.
