What in the Sam Hell is this bullshit from the UK College of Policing? Where do they get the foundation? Taxpayers may not be pleased.

Police officers searching for missing people should not rule out the help of psychics, according to suggested guidelines for the profession.

The person?s methods should be asked for and whether they have any ?accredited successes,? says a consultation document from the College of Policing, which is the official source of professional practice on police work.

Source: Psychics? help finding missing people should not be ruled out, police officers told ? Telegraph

The College of Policing is a professional body for the police in England and Wales. This revised document meant to instruct the police on best investigation techniques revised and released this week, is quite clear that cases like missing persons attract psychics and that can be a distraction. People may be at it for financial gain. But they leave the door open to psychics as a valid line of inquiry if they can prove past success.

?The person?s methods should be asked for, including the circumstances in which they received the information and any accredited successes.?

?Accredited successes? means having a proven record of helping police. As we?ve seen REPEATEDLY, self-styled psychics will claim hits but the truth is they provided nothing that anyone else could not have also provided. They just take a lot of credit post hoc. Finally, in the piece, the Missing People charity state what we already know, psychics don?t actually help.

?Research based on interviews with the families of missing people conducted by the charity shows that no interviewees reported significant findings or comfort from the experience of consulting psychics or mediums.?

The piece from the Telegraph is unclear and confusing as well as suggesting some rather disturbing wastes of time for police investigators. Psychics don?t solve crimes, good investigation and pursuit of valid lines of evidence does. Though, many people still mistakenly believe that psychics are a valid means of information, there are exactly NO verified cases of psychics in the US or the UK being instrumental in solving cases.
