Hardly surprising, with few if any proper Police ever seen on the streets of Oxford - except roaring around with lights flashing and sirens screaming to attend an 'incident' somewhere else - and even Cowley Police Station under threat. Instead of cuts, we should be employing more Police - and not the cheapo version known as Community Support Officers. Don't know about Cowley, but talking with a bloke on the bus coming back from Didcot the other week who said he lived in Rose Hill, he reckoned that instead of about six PCSOs, they were down to about just two or three, with back-up having to come from other areas. If true, then little wonder we are seeing more of some types of crime and disorder on our streets, than officially admitted for Oxford, if Police and PCSO numbers are down, and that silly bloomin government led by that Witney MP not wanting to increase Police numbers and resources - or is the TA also supposed to provide Police back-up?
