A policeman’s lot in Ramsgate

Earlier today I was talking to one of our council officers about antisocial behaviour and pointed out that back in the day the police were completely different inasmuch as the lived in the town or village they policed, so had a vested interest in that town being a nice place. They knew the local problem people and kept an eye on them, I think the key phrase is they were part of the community. 

The conversation made me think of these pictures that all relate to Pc Jordan I know from research that he rescued some horses from the sables in Cecilia Road when the caught fire in 1932. The pictures though say something about policing in Ramsgate that I don’t think words can.


  1. Beautiful photos as always Michael

  2. Thanks Don although I don't think this lot expand very well like some of them do

  3. The easiest way to get the police to attend is to tell them that it's a hate crime against an effnik minority.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
