I’ve today meet with the local police to discuss the staff shortages, I still need to speak to the inspector, but while there I asked if I could go out on patrol with them one Friday night.  They agreed and I’ll be going out in a couple of weeks to see what our local police face on the streets of Kirkham, Wesham and Rural Fylde…. 

This will be an exciting evening for me, I always wanted to be a policeman when I was 10, so almost a dream come true.  It was only the physical fitness that out me off……  Although, after last years pay debacle, I’m glad I did not join up after all.  Only a Labour Government that is tough on crime and the tough on the causes of crime can break the covenant with the police and rob them out of £200 back pay.
