Twining Circular, (TC004) – The art of being a GOOD Chief Officer.

July 3, 2008

In this guide Sergeant Twining produces Circular TC004 – The Official ACPO guidance on how to be a Chief Officer and stand up to Ethnic officer’s…..This is certainly not a personal go at any of my Chief Officer’s. This guide is produced as the common experience of ethnic officer’s….It is, however, a take on Blair V Ghaffur also.

(1) When it becomes clear that an ethnic officer has a grievance against you publicly warn the said person inadvertently, not to step out of line. Be annoyed, screw up your face, and slam your hands on the table.

(2) At the same time ask your staff officer to advise all staff that they will work to your direction and that all your requirements will be reasonable because you say they are. This will have the effect of internal togetherness.

(3) If the said troublesome ethnic staff won’t play ball summon them to an urgent meeting advising them that the meeting is a lawful order. Bullying can be a lawful order and is an excellent method of promoting the Race Relation’s Amendment Act.

(4) Before the meeting do a quick press release advising the victim that if they don’t toe the line they will be dealt with “robustly and quickly”. In other words, tell them, you might get them sacked.

(5) Tell everyone that the Police Authority also will be on your side. 

(6) Finally get a press release from the Police Authority to support you that neither you, nor the authority, have done wrong.  This brings about external togetherness.

(7) Then wait patiently to see if you have scared the daylights out of your staff. If none of the above works then be annoyed, screw up your face, and slam your hands on the table and have a G and T.

  2. Blair v Ghaffur. It will be interesting to see how it pans out. My guess is that Mr B will retire and Mr G will be paid off to keep him quiet. But there will be a few months of allegation and counter allegation before that happens. I was going to say there will be no winners or losers, but the Sunday paper will do well out of it.
