Lancashire Police 'must make improvements'

First published in News

LANCASHIRE Police must make improvements in the way it records anti-social behaviour incidents, a report has said.

A review into police crime and incident reports by HM Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) says the majority of forces are making correct crime recording decisions.

Lancashire was praised for its high quality data, ‘consistent and accurate’ recording by staff with ‘high standards’ and a victim-focused approach.

The report said: “The constabulary could improve the way it records crime from incidents of ASB, and should work to ensure it places the same focus on correct recording of incidents as it does of crimes.”

Lancashire police said: “We recognise there are areas highlighted in the report where we could make improvements and we will ensure that the appropriate action is taken where necessary.”

I know that this is nothing to do with this story but I have to vent my spleen somewhere. There seems to be a distinct lack of willingness on the part of the LET to allow people to comment on certain stories. For example the recent story of the magistrate who walked from court with her liberty in tact after having been found guilty of a huge fraud. Absolutely disgraceful. And the story today about the cowardly father who assaulted his sons aged 6 and 8, because their golf skills weren't coming along. The story didn't even name this worthless piece of dog vomit! People would be queuing up to meet him on the golf course to teach him a lesson!

LET why don't you man up, grow a pair and allow people to make comment on stories that are clearly in the public interest. What exactly are you scared of ?

Well said, let's hope someone at LET is listening.

How ON EARTH does this headline relate to this article???
Lancs police was PRAISED in the report but told it COULD improve in one small area.
Typical Telegraph. Tin Pot journalists trying to make any tedium sensationalist shock news.
Grow up and report the news.
And...while I am on my soap box...surely the way the police DEAL with anti-social behaviour is more important that how they record it???
