Proof positive that Police Crime Stats are a crock of shit

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

A top-level police report has revealed that 600 investigation files – one in five – are unassigned in the Auckland City district alone. Similar situations are likely elsewhere.

This is an indictment on the legacy of 6+ years of Labour’s fixation with revenue gathering policing. It certainly makes a lie of this statement from their achievements page;

Crime rate down to its lowest level since 1982

Anyone can get the crime rate down when you don’t even record crime, and that is exactly what is happening due to the intransigence of the police to investigate crime.

Michael Barnett, the Auckland Chamber of Commerce said on NewstalkZb this morning;

“Business knows that there is little point in going to Police because there is going to be no response”

This is the latest in a sorry exposure of the incompetence of the former Police Minister George Hawkins. It is an indictment on Labour and its policies and a failure for policing in general.

All crime needs to be treated with a Zero Tolerance midset, not just speeding and violent offences.
