Police - It’s always easy to criticise

Re your recent articles on the police.

Could I just say that it is all too easy to criticise officers at the frontline.

I know how difficult it is for them and I, for one, would not like to be placed in the same situations they are, especially when the nearest fellow officer is probably some miles away.

I think the police do a very good job and a very professional job in very difficult conditions.

I would like to invite the politicians who decide how much money our police force gets to come and see the situation around here for themselves.

Not all crime happens in London.
