So we have a situation where we have increased numbers of officers (sorry possible seasonal drop of circa 0.15% April June 2016), increased funding, reduced crime and the service is at breaking point. Is the problem that we are only sending officers out to deal with actual situations? Are all the additional officers working out at the gym during working hours? Did having PC Murdoch soaking his bunions behind a wall provide a safer environment? I appreciate that seeing a police presence on the street gives a sense of security but so does having recorded crime at a 41 year low.
