Here's useful insight into the state of UK policing from Delaney's employers’ "proper" newspaper: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/law-and-order/9761022/Have-the-men-in-blue-crossed-the-line.html Which includes the prime observation: "Elections tend to be fought on the odd assumption that the effectiveness of a police force is measured by the number of people it employs." Sark knows this very well. The best policing arises from the common-sense consensus of a community where everyone knows and trusts - or otherwise - everyone else. No wonder some Sark residents are concerned that their shabby reputations precede them in the judgement of the close-knit Sark community - and maybe hope that plod from across the water can be more easily confused by brass-necked distraction and bluster.
