A new FaceBook group called "Yes I Have Had A Polcol" has attracted criticism over it's shocking content. A 'PolCol' is a Police Collision. The group contains pictures of wrecked Police vehicles and jokes, including those about injured people.
One officer boasts that a colleague had 4 collisions in 2 years, stating it to be an "impressive record". The group also includes details of a drunk who's leg was broken and an 82-year-old "shouldn't be on the road" being done "a favour" by crashing.
Boasts go on to include a month in the Maldives paid for by claim money. An investigation has been launched and the Met Commissioner has been quoted as saying it is "totally unacceptable" for officers to brag about the incidents on the group.
