I READ with interest the police public relations feature.
Last winter/spring in the Camelsdale/Hammer/Linchmere area we had a series of burglaries, thefts and vandalism. To my knowledge little was solved or done. In my case, the PCSO could not be bothered to return my telephone call.
It was noticeable that the quoted initiatives were south of the Downs – are we too far away from the mothership of Kingsham Road?
Except for this year, the Sussex Police precept increase component of the council tax has been the greatest:
2010/11: 2.7 per cent
2009/10: 4.7 per cent
2009/08: 4.9 per cent
2008/07: 6 per cent
2007/06: 5 per cent
2006/05 4.9 per cent
2005/04: 7.6 per cent
2004/03: 39.9 per cent
2003/02: 18.1 per cent
What has Sussex Police done with our money? Pension scheme, officer suspension costs or squandered it?
