Hernandez won’t change policing to get excellent ratings

Really, you could not make this stuff up!

“Devon and Cornwall police commissioner Alison Hernandez says the force won’t change the way it serves the community just to chase ‘excellent’ ratings. She was speaking after a report from Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary said the force must do better in key areas.

She said: “We need to make sure we don’t just chase reports, trying to get an ‘excellent’ result.

“By chasing the result you’re trying to say that you’re brilliant, but actually it doesn’t always work out that way. …”

One thought on “Hernandez won’t change policing to get excellent ratings

  1. Just heard this woman on BBC news claiming that on duty officers do not know what other officers are on duty in their area -with her suggesting that there are more about than there truly are. What utter nonsense. Officers know what colleagues they have on the same shift pattern as they often have the need to work together, and unless radios have changed, they also know who else is using the radios. They are also directed to deal with other matters off their patch when the few officers on duty in an adjacent area have taken a prisoner to the custody suite and are tied up there – pretty much as ambulance staff may be tied up with patients at hospitals. Not only that they talk to some of their former colleagues who know how things should work and what flannel Hernandez comes up with.
    Time for a public vote of no confidence in Hernandez, I think she already has it from the officers on the beat.
