We welcome another guest to our pages some of you may have seen him tweeting under the name of @thesnowball1964
Our main aim here is to highlight Public Consultation as a key issue to the 20% Cuts to Policing which in turn has forced Chief Constables to reduce their budgets and in turn the number of Police Constables by 16,000 nationally.
Thats right 16,000 less Police Officers on the streets!!

Me, You and Winsor 2
“Having had a little tweet-a-mania with @ProtectRPolice in recent days on the subject of Winsor 2, they very kindly asked me if I (@thesnowball1964) would consider writing an article for their webpage, primarily offering an opinion from the point of view of someone who is a member of the general public, out-with the service, and as someone whom, whilst very (in fact, extremely) supportive of the police, the concept of law and order, and in principle opposed to the wholesale imposition of Winsor 2 (which on balance I feel is destructive, and deliberately so), has throughout the weeks, offered up serious challenge and thought to many of the opinions offered up by the tweeting police fraternity in relation to Winsor 2 and other issues. I therefore say thanks to @ProtectRPolice. I feel flattered that you have asked, and privileged to accept your offer. So here you have a view from the sidelines.
So where to start? Well let me outline a few key principles that guide my words here.
Well another busy week for our Police Service with ACPO ranks speaking freely to protect their or their organisations role would suggest so.
