.A police mascot has been criticised for being too white and male.
The character, a police community support officer, or PCSO, called Steve, is white with blue eyes and blond hair. He is based on a real officer in Sutton, Surrey, and visits primary schools and public events in London.
But one Metropolitan Police sergeant said "Steve" failed to represent the communities he served, and could leave Asian and women officers "isolated"
Tell me boys and girls do you think that the UK Police 'service' can ever be returned to a half way effective and trustworthy organisation or are we going to have to scrap it sack them all and start again.
I don't think that I want to see what happens when people like this 'sergeant' go up the promotion ladder.
