    Wow, October last year, South Wales Police are on top of their game.
    What next? appeal for witnesses or information on the neolithic foot prints in the Severn Estuary mud flats.

    He ate two of their pasties – which is deemed a criminal offence !!!

    I don’t know if this press release was generated by the local police or from the press office in Police HQ but all I do know it’s highly unprofessional. A number of questions need to be clarified why on earth has it taken so long? Was it a late identification? Was it a violent crime ? Is this suspect dangerous to the public?
    This is not the first time there has been a late press release. Quite a while back there was an assault outside the Railway Pub and it was over a month after that an appeal was made for witnesses! Seriously it’s about time someone in charge in the police stood up and be counted and made the appeal as soon as possible as practicable and when witnesses are likely to come forward and would be far more reliable than more than 3 months later.
    Does the Police and Crime Commissioner Alun Michael for South Wales ever scrutinise SWP press releases as part of his remit into the efficiency of SWP?
    Does the local police regularly confer with the local media such as PDN,Penarth Times with regard to appeals for witnesses outstanding crimes etc? In my experience the public want to help.

      Alun Michael uses social media to support his concept of community cohesion. Go figure. He thinks you’re stupid. He should be replaced by somebody who operates apolitically.

    The first ever Greggs was in Gosforth in Newcastle upon Tyne, there are now more Greggs’s than McDonalds!

  5. I bet he was wearing a high visibility jacket at the time of the offence, that fools the Police every time , we have had people vandalising the trees around town in broad daylight and got away with it as the Police turned a blind eye to it. Yes the high visibility jacket does it every time , I bet if everyone wore a high viz jacket just for one day the Police would think the town was deserted . With such jackets being worn at all times by the Police its easy to confuse them with other workers , like the little old lady last year who asked me what were the Police were doing digging up the road and laying pipes ? she added, “they should be out doing serious work such as getting cats down from trees and people who don’t pick up dog poo” I had to explain it wasn’t the Police and she would be able to tell by their boots , she was really grateful for my advice . As for the lateness of action by the Police on this crime , I bet they were busy looking for drug use and abuse by raiding the care homes in the area, using highly trained officers , (old people are the worst offenders) errr according to a recent survey.
