This blog is mainly about the governance and future of policing and crime services. (Police & Crime Commissioners feature quite a lot.) But there are also posts about the wider justice system. And because I am town councillor and political activist, local & national issues are covered a little, as well.

A tag for a tag
Tagging firm's 'overcharging' probed
Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has asked the Serious Fraud Office to investigate G4S for overcharging for tagging criminals in England and Wales.... overcharging... ran to tens of millions of pounds....
On a scale from one to ten, how surprised are you?
If a fraud is found to have been committed, may I humbly suggest that those convicted are fitted with their own tags and have their movements restricted. I know this may not be the appropriate sentence for such crimes, but it would be deliciously ironic...
Would it not?
