This week the Chief Constable of Tayside was interviewed by one of Scotland’s largest tabloids; The Daily Record. We met Justine last year and demonstrated our software to pitch a collaborative pilot with the force.
It is been a pleasant surprise to meet so many locals who genuinely feel the police do a great job ! Articles such as this are a fantastic way to reveal the police are human too! Justine talks in the article about being female in the policing world and we can definitely relate to that!
“Women expect too much of themselves. They are always feeling guilty, whether it’s about work or their kids. If they can just do their best, then that’s amazing!”
Justine is blowing a breath of fresh air through the force with her attitudes to women being able to combine their careers with family life. Justine was very positive about MyPolice when we first showed her our product – despite not being online herself she certainly sees the value it will bring to the force.
“The important thing is that the people of Scotland think about what they would really like to see. People understand what matters locally and what they need in their area. We need to save money but we need to get that balance right. It is not a great time for any of us but the issue is how to get the best for the people of Scotland”
“I think community policing is the jewel in our crown and I think here in Tayside we do it very well. This could be a huge opportunity if we go about it very carefully.”
