Drug debt perhaps?
yep i would guess so , thats the only growth industry in this dump
That and immigration!!
Dont think local armed police are news anymore, they do same type of patrolling in our area as unarmed police and often the only police unit available when the rest are busy or on a break.
Remember the vehicle stopped in canterbury with a load of hooky fuel in plastic containers with a siphon hose, was stopped by a armed response unit on routine patrol.
The armed response vehicles are easy to identity, the unmarked ones also!
Parts of E kent have become very violent areas for the public and the local police. Thats why armed response units are based in e kent.
Rather have armed police than pcso’s, thats my opinion.
