Revealed: government plans for police privatisation

Ben Priestley, Unison's national office for police and justice, which covers many police civilian staff, said it was alarmed by the programme: "Bringing the private sector into policing is a dangerous experiment with local safety and taxpayers' money," he said. "We are urging police authorities not to fall into the trap of thinking the private sector is the answer to the coalition's cuts. The fact that the Home Office is refusing to publish its business case – even under FOI [the Freedom of Information Act] – speaks for itself.

"Privatisation means that the police will be less accountable to the public. And people will no longer be able to go to the Independent Police Complaints Commission if they have a problem. When a critical incident happens, a force's ability to respond will be severely compromised. The only winners are private companies and shareholders who make profits at the expense of local services."

They are all agents of a tyranny. None of them are any fkn good unless they are dealing purely with common law offences and not an interpretation of said laws.

Private security firms could investigate some crimes and patrol neighbourhoods under plans being drawn up for police in England and Wales.

The West Midlands and Surrey forces have invited bids for contracts from private firms, on behalf of all forces.


this is the end result of that bailout a few years ago, everyone seems to have forgotten about, corporate police will eventually be a law unto themselves.... big brother taking another step closer whlst the masses sleep...

i did have one thought though, if they are taking tenders from private companies then why not submit a freeman trust application and we'll patrol the streets ourselves, with common law and common sense!!
