North Wales Police Officers
Using publicly paid for vehicles to enjoy a feast at McDonalds in Llandudno, in uniform and while on duty.
Yesterday morning I noticed these two marked North Wales Police cars parked outside Mcdonalds on Mostyn Champneys.
Because there were two cars, I assumed that the officers were attending an incident, and didn’t think too much of it, but when 20 minutes later both cars were still there I took upon myself to see just what was what.
On entering the store I noticed this Officer in full uniform plus a high vis jacket, at the side counter:
Clearly receiving his refreshments, oddly I saw no exchange of cash and instead of queuing with the general public at the tills the officer was being served from the side where drive through customers receive their food etc.
Perhaps Mcdonalds have a policy to feed and water Police Officers FOC…..!
But where were the other officers? one officer cannot drive two public paid for vehicles, as I turned to my left there they were, salivating in eagerness of their free food and drink, oops did I say free, silly me!
So what is the policy on the correct use of publicly paid for UK Police Vehicles:
Driving and use of police vehicles
North Wales Police complies with Authorised
(APP) which contains information to assist policing and has
established a local policy procedure to provide clear standards and
The Force needs to ensure that all officers and staff who drive vehicles
(hired, leased or owned by the Force) on the Force’s insurance, have
been appropriately trained, assessed and/or authorised in accordance
with legislation and nationally agreed standards.
All Force vehicles must only be used for assigned operational duties
and official police business. They must not be used for private or
personal reasons at any time.
Do these officers have a right to use official public paid for police vehicles for the enjoyment of a free Mcdonalds meal?
Don’t forget earlier on this year, I filmed this Officer speeding, then parking up in Tesco’s and buying himself a butty.
I reported this incident back in April this year yet three months later the officer concerned has still not been prosecuted for speeding or reprimanded for the misuse of a police vehicle.
Today I will submit a complaint against these three officers who are clearly abusing their position, but I know I’ll get the usual bollocks, “its been passed to our professional standards department”. Don’t make me laugh, this is a department run by coppers to police coppers and headed by the lying corrupt little toad, D S John Hanson.
