The Paper Chase

January 30, 2007
Last week, I started a post trying to describe how much paper is used in the administration of even the most basic of policing jobs.

By the time I’d reached the ninth paragraph, I was bored and I guessed that anyone who attempted to read the post would also have been very, very bored and would not have come back to my blog ever again.

So I binned it.

However, in the interests of openness, I pass it over to my readers to decide if they really want to know how many forms are required to process a simple shoplifter or record a minor assault.

Let me know and I’ll try and knock out a very brief summary.

    That would be fascinating – and no doubt would destroy what little faith we have left. 🙂
