Exaggeration? 10 police, surely not?Shropshire has something like 10 police covering the whole county including Shrewsbury and Telford on an evening and sometime the territory extends to cover a chunk of Herefordshire too and of that the armed response unit are held in reserve. When you need them the nearest unit might be 30 miles away or more and tied up dealing with a domestic incident or someone having a mental health crisis. Criminals operate with impunity and the situation is only set to get worse. When the likelihood of conviction is low the implications of conviction need to be severe.
