Bearing the length of time you spent in the streets in Bristol, and bearing in mind your avatar name, I now have a very distinct image of what you look like!In my 26 years with Avon and Somerset Police all of which was spent in Bristol on uniform, vice ,drugs, CID and SB I can vouch for so any piss poor examples of poor discipline, lack of professionalism and downright laziness. Leaving dirty crockery etc after their meals. I’m a cop not a cleaner! Uniform and plain cars left with no fuel and chip wrappers inside. Late on parade, and as mentioned before turning up in a shit state. Now I’m no angel, but as stated earlier a military style of college run with proper and fair discipline would be the way to go. It will of course never happen now. I get some assurance in knowing that there are still a lot of good and hard working cops out there doing a thankless and getting more difficult job.
