Some Basildon Council employees are to be given ten extra days of (sic) to work as volunteer police officers.Hmmmm.....
The Employer Supported Policing Scheme sees the council allow their employees who volunteer as police officers to be released for up to ten days across the year from their paid day jobs to give back to their community.So the council can afford to lose 10 days of 'work' so these people can go and 'work' for the useless Essex Police Farce instead?
Who on earth thinks this is a good idea?
The launch of the scheme was attended by the chief executive of Basildon Council Scott Logan, head of the special constabulary Superintendent Simon Anslow, district commander for Basildon Chief Inspector Sam Smith, Special Constable Gordon Humphries and members of the Special Constabulary.Ah. The usual suspects.
