|Finally... the police recorded crime can o' worms is open|
Finally, after years of campaigning by this site and others concerned with the lack of probity of police statistics, the truth is revealed today by the Public Administration Select Committee meeting to inquire into the police recording of crime.
Confirming what we have espoused from these pages for many a year, the committee heard evidence from former, retired and serving police officers, detailing the extent of the manipulation of police recorded crime.
I have also received confirmation today that my submission on the subject has also been accepted into evidence.

Better still, to see the compelling video footage of the officers giving their evidence to the committee click this link:-
The revelations will shock the policing world, and certainly scare some of the Chief Officers who have created, endorsed of simply condoned the scurrilous fudging of crime statistics. The media have already picked up on the scandal which looks set to expose the pernicious fiddling that has taken place.
Police officers routinely fiddle crime figures, MPs are told http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/10460158/Police-officers-routinely-fiddle-crime-figures-MPs-are-told.html
We can only hope that finally, the truth will come out and the full extent of crime in the UK will eventually receive the police attention the tax paying public deserve and the rank and file officers joined the service to give.
