Have you seen the report in the 23rd November 'Ham and High' newspaper, of the theft of a mobile phone by a moped thief? The owner called 101, waited a long time to get through, and then gave the police the address of to where the phone had been taken, identified by a tracker device. The report states that the police did not act promptly and the phone could not then be recovered as the tracker went silent after 24 hours. This report is very similar to the previous one I raised with you by MQ, of my constituent who had his motorbike stolen, found where it was and reported this to the police who failed to act to recover the vehicle. Once, may be regarded as a misfortune; twice looks like carelessness. Is this a symptom of the consequences of the merged Borough command's poor response times; the failure yet again of the 101 system; or the inability of to allocate scarce resources effectively to catch an elusive moped thief?
