Depends what kind of Bobby. Nothing but respect for those doing proper work like domestic violence but that's the minority.
Most in my experience are egotistical and lazy, how often do you see them standing round not even paying attention with their hands in their vest? They say about resources yet I have seen 3 cars worth to arrest a single smack head and then they waited round gabbing.
Friend rang the police the other week as she was intimidated by a man who had waited for her outside the doctors. She had sat next to him in there and when she left he tried to persuade her to get in his car (with her toddler) and followed her intimidating her trying to get her in the car.
Didn't get the call back until the next day and straight away the copper moans at her for not getting the reg, you know because that's top priority to a young mum who's frightened for her and her child. Doctors have cctv so would only taken them 10 mins to get it from them (which they then did). After checking they said because he's not physically touched her there is nothing they could do. They could see him slowly drive talking to her and her being visibly intimidated.
He had alcohol on his breath too so the mininum they could've done was go question him on that as an excuse to go round. But as a public service they should have questioned him on what he said to her. That's only off the top of my head. Unless it's on a plate they're not interested.
