Fife Police spend Â£36,000 taxpayers money on Common Purpose for 10 officers and 3 staff. The officers and staff can now meet in secret under Chatham House rules. Taxpayers have kindly contributed approx 50% of common Purpose's Chief Executive's salary for one year. According to Fife police..."Fife Constabularyâ€™s Career Development Unit promotes, co-ordinates and facilitates police officers and police staff career development opportunities in line with the Force ethos of â€˜Life Long Learning' and â€˜Staff at Full Potential'. Ultimately Fife Constabularyâ€™s aim is to integrate the operational requirements of the business with staff equipped to provide the most effective and efficient service that the community of Fife demands". Is this Common Purpose speak?
