Who says crime doesn’t pay, or to be more specific, the pursuit of crime. The Sunday Telegraph today outlines how senior police officers are being rewarded massive bonuses even though their forces aren’t performing that well. Under a scheme introduced in 2004 payouts ranging from £17,000 to £36,000 have been authorised. Three chief officers in Lincolnshire shared £40,000, even though their force is rated in the countries bottom 6.
However, not all police chiefs are legal crooks. Half the forces in the country have boycotted the scheme, the general opinion being that its payouts are immoral.
If only MP’s had such high values!
