When you put in the news paper you are patrolling the area and show in marked police cars and use dressed officers what do you expect to see?

Poolbrook, Elgar and a few other places are well known and issues are reported all the time. All i ever see is a marked car driving around the areas. Sure it scares them off but they come back. If you want to catch them be a little more sly.

Just walk on foot around Elgar and Poolbrook you will soon get a sniff of weed from someone's house yet you never see them raided.

Hugh Wattmate,
I support your observations and agree the sight of marked police vehicles, and a uniformed officer ultimately defeats their reasons for being in the area.
However, one must remember, this is the United Kingdom, not some far flung corner of our world where shady dealings are commonplace. We have to play by the rules. We must remember it is what we do not see that makes our police force second to none. Criticism should be directed at our legal systems punishment rules, and places of incarceration. Prison should be a deterrent not as if some five star £500.00 a night hotel. It should be Lime Washed Walls, unpaid worked, and bread and water for those who misbehave while serving time. Please do not call be barbaric, because I believe in the punishment fitting the crime; however, I draw the line at the death penalty. Yet our system should have a three-card system. White for a first offence, Blue for a second, with the third card just saying “Life in Prison” with no time off for good behaviour.
