Mr Miller wants people to report any unsavoury activity to the trust so he can build up a database of incidents and pass the information to the police.
"We may find it happens at certain times of the day," he said. "I'm hearing all these things anecdotally as I'm working but the police can't do much about it unless they catch someone in the act."Why expect them to do anything at all? They don't seem to see it as part of their job...
What they do see as part of their job is something the public would never imagine:
At 10.30pm that night, while her boyfriend Ricky Strachan was still scouring the streets, two police officers knocked on the door.
Had they found the car? No, they had come to give her ‘words of advice’ about the way she was ‘handling things on Facebook’.
Lesley said: ‘They were all over my laptop taking screen grabs. The female officer wrote something in her notebook and made me sign it.
‘I asked them to clarify that I was still the victim here and not the criminal. She just said: “We’ve got to make sure we’ve got everything covered.”’It's hard not to disagree that this is 'typical of the way in which the modern police ‘service’ find investigating exciting new ‘crimes’ much more to their taste than actually going out on the streets catching old- fashioned criminals', isn't it..?
