Despite a dramatic rise in the number of murders in Shetland over the past few years (Jimmy Perez is on the case though ) it seems the overall crime rates have fallen https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/news/aberdeen/1570939/crime-falls-by-12-in-aberdeen-shetland-and-the-western-isles/ "In Shetland, the third area to experience a 12% reduction overall, a major decrease in crimes of dishonesty outweighed rises in violence, sexual crimes and vandalism in the overall figures."
The new Partnership Plan seems to be a very positive thing http://www.shetnews.co.uk/news/16910-partnership-plan-a-platform-for-innovation I just had a look at the actual document and was pleasantly surprised at some of the stats about how Shetland compares with other locations. It's worth a read https://www.shetland.gov.uk/communityplanning/ShetlandPartnership.asp
After an incident this year. I was just wondering whether any one else out there has had dealings with the police where the police have, how shall I put it, been less than honest. I know things I said to the police had bits added and removed to make me look worse. Also the witness who was with me had the same done to them too. Obviously I won't mention names or what the case was. Also I am not looking for sympathy or support merely an interest in others opinions. This has probably damaged my trust in the police beyond repair. I know I have not come forward with information, when the police were requesting help, since this happened to me. Just wondering if anyone else has had the same experience in Shetland.
