Police Officer Responds To Claims That: ‘The F**kin Police Didn’t Investigate It Or Nuffin’

All too often, we read stories – mainly published in the mainstream media – about alleged crimes which “haven’t been investigated” by the police. 

In truth, all genuine allegations of criminal activity are investigated by the police. They aren’t allowed to simply ignore a ‘genuine’ allegation. 

But if there is no evidence, or if there is evidence, such as CCTV footage, but the identity of the suspect is not known and there is little chance of ever finding out the identity of a suspect, then an investigating officer might have no choice other than to close the crime report. 

If new evidence comes to light, or if there is a realistic chance of identifying the suspect, then the report can be re-opened by the investigating officer. 

A ‘closed’ crime report can, of course, be frustrating for the victim/informant/witness. 

Still, when you consider that, on average, a police officer posted in a busy area has around 30-45 crimes to investigate at any one time, then their resources are seriously limited. 

Remember; that’s at least 45 suspects to try and find and at least 45 victims to try and look after – as well as dealing with any new jobs which might come in.

Find a Met Police SOIT officer/detective and ask them how many crime reports they are investigating at the moment. Or, find a Met Police murder detective and ask them the same question.

I make reference to the Met, because that is a force I served in for almost ten years. I am sure other busy forces such as WMP/GMP are the same.

Unless you have worked on the frontline of policing, then you will have zero idea as to how busy officers are (and yes, they are STILL entitled to have a break!).

But one anonymous police Twitter account wanted to help shine some light on the situation. 

In a tweet, the anonymous officer said:

‘I feel the need to point out there is a distinct difference between “the f*ckin Police didn’t investigate it or nuffin” and “after investigation, it was determined there was insufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction at court.”

You can always rely on the vast amount of anonymous police Twitter accounts for the straight-talking truth.

As this tweet highlights. 

It is just a shame that the NPCC has decided that accounts such as the one above, that like to say it as it is, are going to be shut down.
