DO NOT USE!

Remember all that recent Incontrovertible Evidence suggesting targets cause dysfunctional behaviour in policing? (Yes, I can feel your shock and surprise).

Well, the warnings that the Public Administration Select Committee (PASC) issued were akin to your local friendly gas engineer putting one of these on a dodgy appliance…

gas warning notice

Yes, that means potential danger has been identified and you have been warned not to use the appliance because highly predictable adverse consequences are likely to ensue.

The PASC report is the targets equivalent of that gas engineer putting a prohibition notice on your dodgy appliance and warning you in the strongest possible terms:

 DO NOT USE!!

It doesn’t get much clearer than that, does it?

So, don’t be like this genius…

Do Not Use - conversation

 

If you ignore the notice, guess what’s going to happen?

Do Not Use - Boom

About InspGuilfoyle

I am a serving Police Inspector and systems thinker. I am passionate about doing the right thing in policing. I have a big problem with numerical targets, unnecessary bureaucracy, and anything else that stops police officers from providing the best possible service. I believe that by adopting a systems approach, policing can be transformed beyond the wildest expectations of many.
