Sadly it's a case of underfunded police force, with understaffed officers and support staff.....getting called to mental health issues, domestic abuse, animal cruelty, etc etc, and struggling to deal with day to day policing..... I think they do a fantastic job.....
Why are people so ignorant about the problem.
They need more funding so there can be more police and operators to answer the phones.
Thanks Mrs May!
Absolutely shocking, simple solution, open local stations back and return their phone lines.
For those saying they are “getting tea etc” I can tell you more often than not an officer will go without eating all day because they can be so busy.
The problem is the Police are understaffed and overworked thanks to Mrs May, people moaning about the rise in crime isn’t going to make the matter go away we need extra Police on the beat, local Police stations reopened and more neighbourhood watch areas.
Something needs to be done sooner rather than later .
Under funded police, under funded NHS under funded social services. Should be the tories new slogan
Well done to everyone involved in keeping our communities safe - There are more staff answering the 999 & 101 calls than ever before - it’s the sheer number of calls being received that have increased over the years. The daily business of Police forces has changed so much that now only 10% of incidents are Crime related..
Stopped using this 101 number , not fit for purpose 🤬🤬
Should have local police stations open again.
must be tea time they gone to the chip shop
Re open our Police stations
And have separate calls centres for 101
And 999 calls
This post is pretty much a daily event. If 101 is struggling all the time why post it all the time?
This simply a ploy to get more funding.
i'd assume tackling crime would cause the volume of calls to decrease? it makes no sense to me that the police are telling us to refrain from calling rather than dealing with the issues that create the calls in the first place.
High calls about what?? Crime rate increasing??
Saturday u posted the same thing . Now today have u got any staff 😂
Employ some more staff.
Hope this helps.
Underfunded, overworked, crime rates are down according to Government statistics. Who do you believe. Austerity is over they said.😃 Moral of the story don't trust politician's. Government on crisis.
I have to thank south Wales police today where a body was found lucky for me it's wasn't my daughter they have been understaffed and unfunded and still was able to speak to me out of the jurisdiction to put my mind to rest really dci Davies thank you keep up your good work x
Same old crap service then.
More staff needed obviously
Exactly more staff needed
Could it be there are simply more and more people breaking the law
Just a bunch of idiots calling in about pointless things
