How Policing Has Changed (33)

Today’s slang word from ‘One In For D & D’ is ‘The Dream Factory’. Traditionally operational officers have an ‘interesting perspective’ about their colleagues who work in Headquarters functions. This is the place where officers believe that senior officers ‘float around in the clouds’ dreaming up new schemes. The perception, whether true or not, is that some ideas originate from other peoples thoughts which are then  re-badged and re-invented on the basis of ‘what comes around goes around’. This is all part of police culture where pessimism is always balanced with ‘can do’ attitudes. So whats changed? – probably not that much.
