Police Officers to get more powers to charge suspects

I welcome this new drive to give the power back to the Bobbies on the beat to charge suspects on the spot without referral to the CPS. This rule will come into force for minor suspicions as announced by the new Home Theresa May on the BBC website today. This might make our lives that little bit easier and help our Neighbourhood Watch to work with the local police on pressing issues such as concentrated vandalism and drug dealing in some local areas.

    • Thanks slam dunk, I reckon it will save on police time because they will not have to refer back to CPS for each and every arrest and also on other paper work but on the other hand, each charged person will have entitlement to legal aid. I suppose we’ll also get changes to the local policing, will find out when we have the next police panel meeting, await further announcements. Perhaps we’ll see more Bobbies back on the beat, bobbies that know their customers well.
