The "insert rude and derogatory comment including a doubt about his parentage" Chief constable of North Wales has done it again!

Gone is the tunic, helmet, pressed trouser, clean shaven policeman of our youth. Replaced by.....well a mess frankly!

Pseudo military uniform...high leg boots, combat trousers, polo shirt, assault/stab vest....and now BASEBALL CAPS!!!

Yes I know that a bobby on the beat needs to be able to be able to respond to the tasks asked of him/her but there is a line over which the "authority" of the uniform is diminished beyond repair...and we have gone over it. Armed response units and undercover units have used baseball caps for years but they do not look right on a copper on the beat.

Compare the Chief constable in the photo and decide!

(from his blog....FFS :roll: )

Yes I know its a hat, but can you not see the standards plumetting?

Other day, small bump at a T junction...plod standing there directing traffic.

NOT shaved, REALLY overweight, creased shirt half tucked in, messy hair........thought it was a security guard untill I saw "police" on his hi-viz.

Chavs have NO respect for plod........is it any surprize?

I live in Bangor, where the photo was taken. The town is full of cap and tracksuit wearing chavs anyway, so he will fit right in.

In fact, if anybody wants me to pass on appropriate messages to the local plod about their new piece of head attire*, then just leave them here...



*who, in all seriousness, do a fantastic job.

I dont think that the gog police wear those caps all the time they wear flat caps, true their uniform changed to combats and black polo necks some time ago, i just think that it's more practical.

My farce are still in the realms of white shirts and captain clip on ties. Albeit it looks smarter its not very practicle whilst wearing body armour as the poorly fitting sh!te we're issued pushes the collar and tie into your neck when you sit down, and the polycotton shirts have the wicking properties of grease paper.

It should be North Wales style uniforms for day to day work and white shirts and ties for court/front office duties.

p.s he looks a total tw4t in that baseball cap.

datumhead, one minute you complain that police are trying to look 'pseudomilitary' and the next you complain they are not pseudomilitary enough.

These new uniforms are more functional and practical.

Perhaps you would like to patrol in the kit in your avatar, looks much smarter you know.

I think what datumhead wants, quite rightly in my opinion, is old fashioned Coppers who look, well old fashioned, but behaving like Vic Mackey from the Sheild when confronted with 'evil doers' - while no cameras are around of course.

If the police throughout the UK hadn't comprehensively failed in their primary function for the past thirty years they wouldn't need to wear body armour on a routine basis.

Surely it's the government who have failed in their management of the police?

Historically (and technically even now) the police were/are raised and employed by the county. It's fair to say that increasing Central Government interference has occurred during the period but it's also true that individual police forces have overpromoted lacklustre wet numpties whose life experience outside of the police amounts to no more than three years studying sociology at Neasden Polytechnic.

Hmmm, it is widely accepted in the police that baseball caps are for firearms and other specialist teams where the use of a hat, baseball or other, at a strategic moment is paramount or it is operationally more useful. I dont agree that they should be for general issue.

That will be why the average age if the recruit in Scotland is 33 and nationally its 31 with only 1 in 5 being further educated after high school.

I dont want to urinate on your fire Ex Stab but if you had insider knowlege and I dont mean merely knowing someone in the job you'd understand just how frustrating it really is.

Granted there are wet farts in the job but no more than in any large company. I can give you my word that the vast majority are continually trying to make the job work in an increasingly difficult environment, mainly due to Government pressure for transparency and accountability.

I can only hope that the tide will turn (and it will) and we return to good value and get cops out of stats offices and back on the streets.

I did hear an interesting conversation between a senior police officer and a seriously intentioned Police personnell officer that it is a well known strategy to promote certain "problem" people and move them around departments so they cannot single handedly bring about the ruination of one department.
Get me out of here lol
