conflict of interest - cops running a business on duty??

OMFG!
No irony intended.
How the fcuk can this be allowed? These people are supposed to be our gatekeepers. They should not be allowed to make money out of their appointments, and I am sure there is a law against it.

The fact is, everybodys on the "make" today in the U.K,--- even the cops ! Boil a kettle, and no less than two bodies have made a profit out of you, ------The electric compony, and a 15% cut in the form of V.A.T to the government. ---------- Think about it ! :wink:

ACPO is one great big con from start to finish. It's a private company run for its members benefit and its function as a meeting place for Chiefs of Police is duplicated by the Chief Police Officers' Association. LINK.

The bastards are even happy to admit it's a shill.

The Association has the status of a private company limited by guarantee. As such, it conforms to the requirements of company law and its affairs are governed by a Board of Directors.

It is funded by a combination of a Home Office grant, contributions from each of the 44 Police Authorities, membership subscriptions and by the proceeds of its annual exhibition.
Private company, yet in receipt of two separate sources of public funding. Just as well these are men of unimpeachable integrity, or there might be a risk of a conflict of interest...

SCAB. Senior Coppers Are Bastards.

Serious question here, how much different is the British Govt. and Civil Police Force run compared to Zimbabwean, Ugandan, Cuban 'regimes'? Are we setting any unique standards or codes of practice over here? Often I wonder.

If the police, like all public sector workers, including the armed forces were funded correctly there would be no need to promote a self funding environment.

Where I live they are openly asking tax payers to voluntarily pay an extra 50p a month to fund more cops on the streets.

Bloody ludicrous.

But we as a nation can give billions to banks, to see it wiped out on the stock market.

Dear Mr Ugly

I write in connection with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 which was received by Sussex Police on 10 December on transfer from the Sussex Police Authority with your agreement.

2008/9 - £17,333.38
2007/8 - £17,333.38
2006/7 - £16,713.49
2005/6 - £16,226.29
2004/5 - £15,923.98

Payments from budget are made on behalf and with the authority of the Sussex Police Authority. The financial governance arrangements for the Authority are shown via the following link to their public website – http://www.sussexpoliceauthority.gov.uk/finance/index.asp If you have further queries about the nature or statutory basis of those arrangements you can contact the Authority as shown in the following link –
http://www.sussexpoliceauthority.gov.uk/about/contact.asp

The Association of Chief Police Officers of England, Wales and Northern Ireland (ACPO), although not a body subject to the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act, can be contacted via the following link-
http://www.acpo.police.uk/contact.asp

In addition, we hold a copy of the following briefing note supplied by ACPO, which may be of assistance;

“ACPO was set up over 50 years ago with the aim of providing a means whereby work in developing national policing policies could be undertaken in one place, on behalf of the police service as a whole, rather than in the 44 forces simultaneously.

“Moreover, the Association provides a central point for police service issues and is the representing body of the Service nationally. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a staff association for chief officers – that function is fulfilled by a separate and distinct entity – the Chief Police Officers’ Staff Association. ACPO is therefore an independent, professionally led strategic body. In the public interest and, in equal and active partnership with Government and the Association of Police Authorities, ACPO leads and coordinates the direction and development of the police service in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. In times of national need ACPO, on behalf of all chief officers, coordinates the strategic policing response.

“Police authorities voluntarily contribute towards the funding of ACPO. They decide annually how much the grant should be and each authority makes a pro rata contribution. For the 2007/8 and 2008/9 Financial Years, funding of £809K was provided, in 2006/7 the contribution was £781K, in 2005/06 the contribution was £758K and for 2004/05 the contribution was £735K. In addition, the Home Office also provide a similar level of annual grant which in 2008/9 amounted to £836K.

“These payments are determined annually at the present time and reflect the recognition that without the existence of an organisation such as ACPO, each force would have to in its own right perform many of the functions undertaken by the Association on a national basis; thus increasing bureaucracy and reducing the cost effectiveness of the Service overall. The operational arm of ACPO performs a critical co-ordinating role for the Service in times of international and national crises ensuring the efficient, timely and effective deployment of skilled personnel when required.”

Yours sincerely

T Mahony
Freedom of Information Disclosure Officer

Zimbabwe perhaps, at least its starting to come out of the darkness now!
I suspect we will follow them into hyper inflation soon!

Its not so much the money ACPO makes that bugs me, but the fact that they are able to dream up rules and regulations to be applied to the general public - without any lawful authority at all.

And to the benefit of the highest bidder. They are in it to make a profit after all.

No point in whinging. They've got the support of the Government and there's thing you can do about it. Even when the next Government gets in, they'll have their support as well.

That's life.

You are more than likely right Biscuits (damn you :D )
But it doesn't make it right and proper does it? Its symptomatic of everything that is wrong in this country today.

Most members of ACPO wouldn't know a crook, even if a bloke in a stripy shirt, kato mask, and bag with SWAG printed on it, if one walked past them.
