‘Appalled’ by police decision

I WAS appalled to hear that Lincolnshire Police is selling part of its establishment and activities to a private firm.

The only reason for this must be that it is admitting that a private firm can operate more efficiently and more cheaply than Lincolnshire Police can itself, despite its experience. A sad commentary on the county’s police force and a boost for some lucky shareholders.

The public?

Who cares.
