Letter: 'you say' - Brown must turn up heat on power firms.

Byline: Gordon Lawson

I WAS not surprised to read that four out of ten victims of crime are not visited by a police officer.

My car was broken into recently and belongings were stolen. I reported it to police and was given a crime number for my insurers and a letter directing me to Victim Support. I did not get, or need, a visit but many victims, especially the elderly, are left traumatised and would value the reassurance.

It would also be good to know that the crime was being investigated and an attempt made to hunt down those responsible.

Our hard-pressed police are being bogged down in administration and tied up with red tape.

The Government needs to find a way to stop our hard-pressed police from being bogged down by red tape so they can do their job properly.
