Police chief suggests non-English speaking victims of crime will be given priority

Police chief suggests non-English speaking victims of crime will be given priority with white middle class men at the bottom of the list

  • Craig Mackey said police will prioritise elderly people and non English speakers
  • Over the past four years, the Met Police has had to make £600m of savings
  • Mayor Sadiq Khan said half of London’s ‘poorly used’ police station front counters earlier this year

A senior police officer at the Metropolitan Police has said victims of crime who don’t speak English could be prioritised more during call outs.

Craig Mackey, deputy commissioner for the force, said the Met could decide who receives a face to face visit from the police depending how ‘vulnerable’ they are.

He added the method was an ‘absolutely feasible’ way to help the force cope following cuts to funding.

  1. What is this country coming to. Another one more concerned about he looks in the press than performing his job. These people make you ashamed to be English and live in this country

    • Wow.

      You’re ashamed to be English cause the cops go to see a grandmother before you? Or to see someone who doesn’t know the language before you?

      I am amazed you can still function.

      UN. BEE. LEAVE. ABLE.

      • Paddy that’s a mean and contemptuous response Mr Gargett. …..Lucy J gives you the reason why you should be very worried what has become of law enforcement in Britain. One day it could very well affect you sir in ways you find un.bee.leave.able . If you are a white male you could easily find yourself last in the queue as law enforcement deliberate on your worthiness of their attention….

  2. In layman’s terms!

    ‘Vulnerable’ people ‘could be’ prioritised to be seen, the magic words being vulnerable and could be.

    Don’t get your hopes up too much and secondly our keen eyes should be on SYP, who in recent months have been conducting their own consultation on policing.

  4. Let me guess who the top priorities are for rapid response of British Law Enforcement…..
    Top of the list will be… ,LGBTQ,s and non gender folk, religious minorities (excluding Christians) , Militant feminists, granny and grandpa ‘ white male supremesists ‘ and children last…..The future of Britain we’ve all been waiting for….

  5. The law does not allow the police or public authorities to discriminate against people because of age, disability, gender re-assignment, marriage or civil partnership, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. (Equality Act 2010)
    Therefore a Chief Constable or Senior Police Officer cannot prioritise non English speakers.

    If someone cannot speak English how will they contact the Police?

  7. “‘Vulnerable’ people ‘could be’ prioritised to be seen, the magic words being vulnerable and could be.” So, let me tell you how this works… As a white woman of diminutive stature, who, not so many years ago, would already be of pension age, I was assaulted by South Yorkshire Police, falsely arrested, falsely charged and detained, and subjected to a malicious prosecution, after I attended Main Street to try to report a crime. Why? Oh, apparently I was not vulnerable enough, in comparison with the s136 patient that they were questioning in a corridor, in spite of obviously needing urgent medical care in a hospital, about his desire to throw himself from a bridge. And, because I had arrived first, on a pre-arranged appointment, and was occupying an otherwise available room, and, apparently my voice was too loud and was allegedly upsetting the s136 patient in the corridor.) I was so not vulnerable, that the police pepper sprayed me, at least four of them forced me to the ground, asphyxiated me, and then claimed that this 60 year old woman (who had never been in trouble before in my life), had fought off four police officers with one handcuff on, had punched, head butted and kicked them, none of which was even close to the truth. I was so not vulnerable that I was released at around 3am, ten miles from home, with no coat, no money, no phone, and no means of getting home. If SYP are conducting their own consultation on policing, they should first employ some officers worthy of being called law enforcers. At present, I fully understand the process that produced the lies that have been told about Hillsborough and Orgreave.
