Police and their duties in relation to bailiffs

I am not an expert in these matters, thus I rely on the written word for guidance.  The written word is useless if not supported by authority.  To that extent I reproduce this part of an observation of possible miscarriage of justice, directing it at all the councils and legal bodies that failed Andy Miller and use their powers in an intimidatory manner.

A comprehensive knowledge of traffic management regulations rather than legal qualifications is necessary and as such I am unaware of any requirement for local authority traffic managers to be legally qualified. Conversely I am unaware of any legal representatives having trained in traffic management regulations.  I should also advise that whilst the parking and minor traffic enforcement directions, rules and orders made by an administrative rather than a judicial court are carried out by bailiff companies and their self employed subordinates, the fact is that none of these people are legally qualified either and thus indicative that legal qualifications are not a requirement for traffic enforcement purposes.  

As such I will restrict my observations to parking and minor traffic enforcement regulations and rules wherever possible and having read papers sent to me by Mr Robertson, I see that this matter was woefully dealt with by both the bailiffs and the police, all of whom appeared to lack sufficient acquaintance with parking and minor traffic enforcement regulations to carry out a legal enforcement. Indeed the conduct of all is nothing short of shockingly bad. If ever there was an example of why the police should never be involved with assisting bailiffs in civil matters, this would be it. 

I attended a seminar, with fellow victims, necessitated by public angst and distress at Police/bailiff co-operation at a London Police venue. The Met Police called that meeting to guage... subjective! The head of the Mets Traffic Division stated "at least our actions hasn't resulted in death..."  This was instantly rounded on by Sheila Hancock who described the case of Robert Michael Miller to the Police.  Not even the seasoned professionals could hide their unease at what was told to them.  I asked only one question in the concluding talks.  "With this evidence you have just listened to, would you charge those involved with this death under the new law of Corporate Homicide?"

The lack of reply tells you all you need to know when authorities get out of their depth because of their lack of comprehension of legal procedure.
