Our latest report THE CASE AGAINST ACPO - A CRITICAL LOOK AT THE ASSOCIATION OF CHIEF POLICE OFFICERS, brings together many of the moments of contraversy surrounding this self serving, deceitful, profligate, political oligarchy (self appointed non democratic organisation) who are disloyal to their rank and file officers and of doubtful value to the public at large.
This report contains a collection of their worst moments, scandalous revelations and perhaps most importantly, the current thoughts of influential serving police officers.
ACPO as an organisation is a massive drain on public funds. The question must be asked and answered – “DOES ACPO SERVE A LEGITIMATE INDEPENDENT PURPOSE AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, DOES THE MASSIVE EXPENDITURE REPRESENT VALUE FOR THE TAX PAYERS MONEY THAT FUNDS IT?”
We would argue that ACPO as a group, has become a divisive self-serving organisation that has proven time and time again, that it does not meet the high standards the public would expect of its most senior police officers. Riddled with controversy over recent years, as the report will illustrate, ACPO has become an embarrassing stain on the character of the police service. They have repeatedly betrayed the rank and file officers who serve under their command and numerous examples of profligate spending does not sit comfortably with the public in the current financial climate.
The time has come for this unelected, unsupervised and powerful body to be brought to heel and replaced with a legislatively-controlled organisation which can be called to account for its activities.
This report pulls no punches. It tells the ACPO story as it really is and it makes sorry reading. To read or download our full report click here. Alternatively, you can view the report from our "View Our Reports" section in the sidebar to your right.
