Why are ACPO involved in this?????????
ACPO, despite it's representations to the public, is a private company which makes money out of charging the Govt for information it obtains (possibly illegally) from police forces throughout the UK and collating it. To be a shareholder in ACPO you have to be a police officer who has attained a certain rank, not sure if it's Inspector or Super, however this is still a private company that has too much input on Govt. policy and is given too much access to confidential data.
Do some checking up, if you don't believe me, and you'll be surprised to find that they had to repay £18 million earlier on this year for charging for data that police forces were supposed to supply as standard operational data.
Do I hate ACPO, yes I do, we pay senior police officers enough without them ripping us off throough some shell company whilst appearing to be a benificial adviser to all. Bastards.
