2000 More Police Needed?

People are never shy of jumping on the Olympics bandwagon, and using it as an excuse for demanding more money/resources.

True to form Paul McKeever, Chairman of the Police Federation, has stepped up to the plate and asked for 2000 more police officers. He is quoted in

"We must not lose sight that we will also be policing the biggest sporting event this country has handled in 2012, when the Olympics comes to the UK.

How we are expected to deal with the demands this will place upon the service, in addition to the increasing property crime rates with fewer officers per head of the population, is beyond me. My real fear is that the level of service and protection we will be able to afford the public will be severely affected unless action to address this is taken now

Well, he would say that wouldn't he?
