should visit every victim of crime in England and Wales no matter how
minor the offence, the home secretary has said. Is this the best use of
Alan Johnson made the call as he launched an advertising campaign outlining what is expected of the police.
campaign focuses on the "Policing Pledge" which sets out what officers
promise to do in their community, and was devised to help improve the
public's trust in the criminal justice system.
The Home Office also wants police forces and councils to use websites to name key local convicted criminals. Should
all victims of crime, whatever the offence, receive a visit from the
police? Do you think naming and shaming convicted criminals is a good
way to tackle crime? What do you expect from the police?
P.S [Of course the police should visit the victims of crime just to see what
they didn't have time to go to when called. We do honestly need more
legal policemen and women on the streets, and do away with this phoney
community representation that have no powers whatsoever. Also, the idea
of naming and so called shaming the people who commit the crimes is yet
another feeble way which New Labour have created. BRING BACK THE BIRCH
