If the police can’t tackle ‘minor’ crimes, how long before we take it upon ourselves?

Recommended Posts

You arrive back home from holiday late at night to find the house ransacked – your jewellery, the smart TV, the laptop all gone. You reach for the phone and dial not the 101 number that will connect you to the police but your local private security force. They reassure you they’ll have one of their officers over right away to take evidence and a detective around first thing.

Isn’t that a good thing? The public sorting their own minor problems out rather than the knee jerk reaction of calling the police and demanding a response?
