Now, here’s something nice to wake up one morning to:
Head of online child protection quits
“Relations between Gamble and May appear to have soured over the issue of merging Ceop with other crime agencies in a new super-organisation announced as part of a review of policing in July.
The National Crime Agency is due to be launched by 2013, but Ceop sources said there were growing fears that child safety would be a low priority alongside organised crime and border policing.
"Ceop does not feel that it is in the best interests of children and young people for Ceop to be assimilated into the National Crime Agency, as was announced a short while ago," the agency said on Sunday night in a statement expressing solidarity with Gamble.
"This direction of travel does not seem to have changed and Jim Gamble has therefore today offered his resignation to the home secretary with a four month notice period."
Gamble has argued that online child safety is so important it requires its own dedicated force.”
Yes, we know how much you would like to act all by yourself and be accountable to none.
But you shouldn’t have taken such a hasty decision… there are people out there that really, REALLY need you. And they aren’t children.
