Great police lies.

A few months ago i attended an elderly couple who were having some serious problems with a neighbour, a young man placed next to them by the council, with drug, alcohol, violence and general unpleasant person issues. He had been making their lives a misery and the council had done nothing about it and couldn't move the couple who were both in their 80's and barely sleeping.
I attended and took a full report, provided them with the reassurance contact details of the appropriate agencies and what we would do next.
We are constantly having presentations and powerpoints of how we need to deliver our service to people and what service they should expect from us at the sharp end. I delivered this all like a boss (if i say so myself) and set about alerting all the appropriate agencies and departments about the situation so we could deliver our multi-agency promise of action.
2 months later they called in with the same problems about the same person. Nothing has been done, not a single thing and every one of my assurances, which i am required to give were left unfulfilled. I didnt feel i could go back to their address and go through the same flim flam again, selling them a vision of action which we have no resources or will to deliver.
Of course if i did tell them the truth and reality it would not only be cruel but i could get into trouble for not delivering our promise of telling them all this nonsense.
I think part of the reason the public have issues with the police is we lie constantly to them about what we can do and how we can do it when basically we cant and wont do so very much.
