More dysfunction in the police corps is on the way, this time, caused by the Premier himself. In order to appease the middle-aged police officers who would prefer to keep on working instead of retiring, Robert Abela will allow them to stay on with some “incentives”.
These “incentives” have got nothing to do with strengthening the police corps, but will ensure to garner some support for Robert Abela by the middle-aged police officers.
The Police Corps need serious and strategic reform such as raising salaries and wages and increasing discipline and key performance indicators. Robert Abela’s piecemeal and politically-motivated schemes will only make the Police worse.
