From time to time, the team at Nice 1 produce analytical reports investigating some of the issues that affect front line policing.

Please feel free to view and download any of the reports you might find of interest. If you have any suggestions for topics worthy of our investigation, please contact us via the contact buttons on the home page.

Nick Herbert, the policing minister, has announced that the 43 police forces of England & Wales will face £125million in cuts to their allocated budgets.

In this report, we reveal the cuts force by force, and demonstrate that these cuts can be delivered without affecting the basic pay, overtime or resources of frontline police officers.

The Chief Officers and their police associations are responsible for how their force budget is spent. Response teams and frontline resources mist be ring fenced and protected from cuts.

This report clearly shows there are more appropriate areas where cuts should be focused.

A widely held view from the front line of policing is that there are:
“Too many chiefs and not enough Indians on the ground”.
Officers report that their forces are top heavy with Chiefs and Senior Management ranks, causing confusion with a blurring of responsibilities. This causes inconsistencies in strategy with one Chiefs’ flavour of the month project being superseded by another, often opposite viewpoint, sometimes within weeks or months of the first being issued. Officers feel that their forces employ an unnecessary number of Senior Officers and police staff (civilian support personnel), who apparent sole purpose in life is to bury the front line, public facing officer with e mails, administrative tasks, data capture requests, box ticking and apparently valueless instructions that tie them up in administrative jobs, keeping them from front line duties.

In this report, we provide detailed reports on officer numbers, split by rank and force, together with the costs that these numbers create. Interleaved between the reports we will provide explanatory notes with the findings, bullet point observations and a summary of observations.

An insight report into why Public Confidence in the Police Service of England & Wales is at an all time low.

Never has the police service had so much money, so many officers or such access to technology. Yet never has public dissatisfaction with the police been so widespread. Complaints against the police have doubled in the past three years. This big increase, according to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, is due to allegations from law-abiding, middle-class, middle-aged and retired people. These traditional supporters of the police have never felt so let down.

This report investigates the causes and makes some observations about what is needed to restore public confidence in our most essential thin blue line.

An initial report to explore the need for reform of Police Governance in England & Wales.
At first glance, it is difficult to understand why police performance is currently under such intense scrutiny and why a range of politicians, practitioners and commentators are calling for fundamental reform of the Police Service. Police recorded crime has fallen since 2007 and the criminal justice system brings more offenders to justice each year than ever before.

The structure of the police presents a block to necessary reform. The “tripartite model” – with power shared between the Home Secretary, Police Authorities and Chief Constables – means that Government does not have effective control over national policing priorities. The 43 forces are run as fiefdoms by their Chief Constables. To get things done, the Home Office resorts to bribing forces with sweeteners.

In this report, we examine what is wrong with the current police governance model and explore alternative options available.
OUR REPORT ON FRONTLINE POLICE RESOURCES  -  Click here to view the report

Frontline police response numbers is a very emotive subject, both to the officers engaged in that role and to the public in receipt of the service they provide from limited resources.

There is considerable evidence to support widespread front line police officer belief that police response numbers are dramatically and dangerously lower than Senior Police Officers would have us believe.

Police response numbers, the poor application of financial and human resource is one of many areas of policing that require urgent reform. The ability to respond to the needs of the public is of paramount importance in the quest to restore ailing confidence in the service as a whole. More importantly, whilst the need for reform in this vital area remains obstructed by bureaucratic nonsense and a misguided drive to manipulate statistics, the lives and safety of both public and police are placed at risk.
In this report, we present the results of freedom of information requests submitted to the 43 police forces of England & Wales, which asked for the first time, what are the actual numbers of officers available to respond to public calls for assistance, as opposed to the office bound personnel who are rarely available after 5pm. 
The results are shocking.  

TOP COPS PAY & CRIME SCANDAL  -  Click Here to view the report pdf

A long-awaited white paper “Protecting the public - supporting the police to succeed”, brought in by the Labour administration late in 2009, was meant to dramatically reform the police service and slash red tape. Instead it outlined moves to dramatically cut police overtime putting the Government on a crash course with front line police officers.

When senior police pay scales are revealed, showing who gets paid what, it is only then that the real scandal emerges and more obvious and suitable targets for reduction jump off the page. In these desperate times for the private sector, hard-pressed taxpayers can only gasp at the lavish secret perks paid to senior police officers. At a time when public sector pay excesses are under close scrutiny, it is shocking to discover that senior police officers are being paid astonishing and disproportionately excessive salaries, bonuses and expenses that would make the recent MP expenses scandal seem trivial by comparison.

In this report we show the officer strength and wage bills of the 43 police forces of England & Wales. The reports show the enormity of the problem which surely must command immediate attention by the new Government.

Population vs Licensed Vehicles  Click here to view the report.

Bringing together the data from the department of transport, police recorded crime and the office for national statistics, we produce the most accurate picture of car crime by the number of licensed vehicles. (Home Office statistics measured the offences against the population count which is grossly misleading and understates the volume of the offences.

Car Key Burglary  - Click here to read the report.

According to research carried out by Nice 1, the crime figures are artificially suppressed
by misallocating car theft statistics under house burglary, where an offender breaks in to
steal car keys. The former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith when pressed for these numbers,
revealed that 18,600 incidents of car key theft occurred in 2008 across the 43 police forces of England and Wales. The effect of this distortion is shown in the report, enabling the Government to announce a decrease in car crime, when actually the incident numbers had increased on the prior year.

The current unrestricted, uncontrolled situation has led higher crime rates, demand for more housing, extra strain on the environment, traffic congestion, longer hospital waiting lists, lower educational standards, higher income tax, lower wages, high unemployment, a loss of British identity, a breakdown in community spirit, more restrictive policing, higher council taxes, a shortage of council homes, higher levels of stress and unhappiness and a fragmented community.

The cost of immigration crime is £4billion per year. This report examines the social and economic cost of the secret Labour plot to flood the country with immigrants to change its very character and identity.
