Armed police turnouts double to 10

Post by GD on Tue 11 Oct 2011, 5:21 pm


FIREARMS officers were deployed 10 times during 2010.

That was double the number of call-outs in 2009. On four occasions, it was in response to violent domestic incidents.

Most were in response to emergency calls where someone had a weapon such as a knife and threats to harm had been made.

As well as seven spontaneous call-outs, there were three planned deployments which included two covert operations and a security operation for the British-Irish Council meeting hosted by Guernsey in June 2010.

Inspector JP Le Breton explained that one of the deployments had resulted in Anthony Jones being jailed for 15 years in April 2011, after he stabbed and seriously injured his ex-girlfriend’s partner in February 2010.

gotta justify the cost and existence of such a unit...

I am not against armed officers but i am against us tax paying public having to fork out the cost of three armed response vehicles which IMO we do not need , what was wrong with putting the weapons in the boot of an ordinary car like they used to do when they get a weapons call out.

I have also heard that the force have disbanded the dive team which IMO was more appropriate to an island surrounded by water .

I'd like to know how GP photographers manage to get to incident sites in time to see the police armed response units deploying.

I tried to post this question twice on thisisguernsey.com.
It did not appear - I have never had a posting refused before.
