The Old and Bold “organisation”, incorporating Pensioner’s Patch, is a non profit association, free of any charges, run by retired police officers, independent of Surrey Police but always minded of the link and capacity to cause embarrassment.
The above organisation chart is something of a spoof but makes the point that there are plenty of linkages and a great deal of help available should you need it. Or just enjoy maintaining contact and still being a part of something.
We have entering a period of “self help” a time when organisations have limited resources, and where the police in particular have and are still going through a considerable cultural change. For most of us the police officer was dominant within the organisation whereas now in Surrey they make up less than 50% of the staff. The culture of family, of sports teams, a club in the police station, and as we saw in the last issue from the pictures of John Wright, the police ball have all gone.
It is for many a job and not ‘The Job’.
