I know it is ACPO, so normality doesn’t really apply in their bizarre little world, but really, do police officers absolutely need a 93 page, two volume manual on how to ride a push-bike?
The TaxPayers’ Alliance call it:
an absurd waste of police time and thousands of pounds of taxpayers' money.
Which seems fair enough to me.
Has this come about because rank and file police officers are incapable of riding a bike? If so then I would submit that they’re probably not safe to be let out of the house, or is it that ACPO think that rank and file police officers are incapable of riding a bike without step-by-step, idiot proof instructions from them?
I reckon it is the latter, and unfortunately it explains a great deal about ACPO and our police service.
