    Mick's departure seems to have been on the cards for sometime. What is not said here is that the decision is, at least in part, due to a merger of admin functions between Essex and Kent Police. The local FLO team is excellent, albeit busy. A shame to lose someone with so much experience.

    The guy is recognised as being very experienced in his field and what he says has merit. Obviously if you made redundancies, lowering the level of collective experience within a department, the efficiency and quality of service will be lowered. How when it relates to ensuring public safety is it then a good thing?

    I see that the BBC story says ' Essex police say they have now introduced more rigorous procedures for checking firearms certificate holders and applicants '......wonder what exactly this means,were they not doing things the way they should have been done before.

    Ha ha oh well, it will be interesting to see how it's going to work. Maybe the will open a drive through service, I here it is the way of the future.
