The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

A Bit Odd?

I am grateful to alsojp for pointing me to this in today's 'Times':
Detectives in Nottinghamshire are dismayed by the plans of Deputy Chief Constable Howard Roberts to make them wear uniforms and fluorescent jackets to improve police visibility. The county has the highest crime rate in England and Wales, with 134 victims of crime per 1,000 people, statistics indicate.

Isn't that a bit like giving them baseball caps with 'Undercover Detective' on the front?
