  1. How many will that leave ? About 10 or 15 ?? Presumably the ones under investigation re CSE will not “get lost” to the investigating authorities in this mass departure !


  2. I hope that this is not another gravy train. Officers leaving on a Friday with a huge pay off, and a big pension. Then on Monday Morning turn up as a civvy, to exactly the same job at a slightly lower rate, and starting to contribute to yet another pension.
