On the Beat.

So, "SCOTLAND had only 148 police officers on the beat at any one time until recently, despite its biggest city suffering from the highest murder rates in Europe per head of the population, new research reveals."

Pretty worrying from a public safety perspective, but as Mr Smith has said previously it may in part be due to the fact that so many cops seem to find themselves up in court on charges against them.

The latest case in point, "A former policeman has admitted giving confidential information to a drug dealer in Dundee. William Hosie also admitted neglect of duty by failing to pass details to other officers and attempting to pervert the course of justice." He's another bad cop.
