There are simply not enough officers to cover the work load and the rank and file find this as infuriating as the public. So please cut them some slack, they want to catch the bad guys but have to work within the restraints of logistics and, unfortunately, the law.
My bill for policing goes up every year well beyond inflation whilst our service has been decimated and the crime rate soars as we have become such an easy touch. Trying to get a crime number is like pulling teeth as they just don't want it on the stats.

I am sure no one is really blaming individual officers but, around here at least, there is very good reason and justification for criticism; the rural community is paying handsomely for services to be maintained in urban areas only. Not good enough.

I certainly don't feel obliged to cut them any slack when they agree that crimes have been committed but refuse to log them. How does this help either party?
