Officers accused of fast food law flout in Greasby

Feb 22 2012 by Helen Hunt, Birkenhead News

TWO on duty police officers were caught leaving their van parked on a pavement while they ordered food inside a takeaway.

A disgruntled passer-by snapped the uniformed coppers who had stopped for some fast-food in Greasby, accusing them of double-standards.

Merseyside Police said the officers would be spoken to about the incident, but said it is not illegal to park on the pavement – as long as it is not obstructing anyone.

Today the photographer who caught them off guard and on duty said: “There are parking spaces at the side of the shops and around the back so there was really no need for the police to mount the kerb, drive on to a pedestrianised area and park there while they went into the Chinese for their supper.

“As the rest of us are plagued by the spy car and have to obey the law when we park, why can the police arrogantly mount a kerb and park blatantly illegally whilst they buy their food?

“I was under the impression the police were not above the law but are there to enforce it! It shows an arrogance that is not very productive and does not give one a good impression of the police nor does it make one respect the police.”

The police officers, a man and a woman, were caught on camera on Friday, February 17, at around 7.30pm at the Golden Phoenix on Greasby Road.

Superintendent Jon Roy, of Merseyside Police, said officers are actually encouraged to use local eateries to build relationships in the neighbourhoods in which they work and in this case were not parking illegally.

Supt Roy added: "While the parking of this vehicle is not illegal, as it is not obstructing other road users or pedestrians, our officers ought to use the provided car parks.

"We encourage officers to go to local establishments to buy food during refreshment periods, especially neighbourhood staff, as in this case.

"The officers will be spoken to, with regards to using appropriate car parks in the area."

who cares? honestly if someone goes to work to face physical and verbal abuse on a daily basis to protect the public then cut them some slack.

I'll bet if the spy car went passed while a member of the public was parked in the same place there would be a ticket in the post!!

Are you dibble Hanky?

Thats the standard line I get of Kev, who works for Man met as crowd control, He's admitted he does the job because hen likes a good scrap.

Couldn't give a tos55 mate, they chose the line of work, its hardly the same as going to Iraq is it policing Greasby.

Why turn a blind eye because they are coppers, dont get me wrong I've got a lot of mates who are coppers, forensics, crowd control and i respect what they do, double standards takes the piss when they are over taking me on chevrons on the Greasby by pass whilst i'm doing 40 they hit 60 no indication and then use the wrong lane on the roundabout to go where Mc D's drive through, waste of space

My point exactly, did you here the one about shutting the pot farms down and then coppers selling it on for personal profit, hardly legit that is it?

Best one was the woman who tried to commit suicide at Frodsham on Bridge lane, We talked her down and took her for a ride in the back of the boat, end of the night we passed frosdham police station to ask them to do a routine check and make sure she didn't change her mind, Copper sat with his back to us watching TV! in a high vis, wouldn't answer the intercom as it was passed 6pm an terchnically unmanned, all the same if the woman was being raped or murded - ridiculous,

I'm all for good coppers like the ones i know, dead against those abusing speed limits, parking laws etc and the same *wa*s are pulling grannies for doing 33mph in a 30mph zone Calday,

Unfortunatley its all targets based these days, rather than good old catching criminals

Glad to see where all my hard earned tax money is going

if you've got issue with how they drive, dash mounted camera and then you can report them, or you could always just report them anyway.

would you be so bothered if it was a fire engine or an ambulance stopped outside a chippy?

In honesty dude, no

I know i'm coming across gobby, not intended not got an issue with you defending your opinion, I'm pro police but i find that a piss take why not park up like anyone else ?

One of my mates was also nearly killed on a Ducatti when two idiots ran a red light with no sirens they went to court etc and were dismissed as it turns out they weren't on a responder, stuff like that makes my blood boil, If that was a civvy they'd be in the clink for less than that

nothing to apologise for.

am with you on the standards of driving etc.
i was in liverpool when a marked car passed me and went through a manned speed trap doing 50 in a 30. i stopped and asked the coppers why they didn't stop the police car and we then had a 20 minute conversation about how it could of been on a call etc etc.

i knew i was on a hiding to nothing but as i departed i explained to them that while i had been talking to them i'd stopped them checking speeds for best part of 20 minutes, they weren't amused wink


i do think that they should have on board cameras constantly recording so if a member of the public complains then the evidence is already there.

Hahaha i bet that went down like a lead balloon mate smile

Thats my main gripe behave how all law abiding citizens are expected to and noone can sling mud, All other fronts they do a decent job

Agree with the dash board cams, they recently landed two bobbies in trouble for being over heavily handed with an oap in a Range Rover, to be fair he did fail to stop and feigned ignorance, harsh but probably well deserved.
