Please forgive me but Am a little confused. By the above.

You have posted differently in the past below are 3 examples:

Pc Neil's route post #2

Beats were walked at 2 1/2 mph in the day, 3 mph in the evening. This needs to be taken into account. Also, checks were made on vulnerable buildings, which took time to execute.

Bernerr street to Mitre Square: how long post # 8

Standard allocated speed for a Met PC is 2 and 1/2 mph in the day, 3 mph in the evening.

Beats post #7
Beats were supposed to be patrolled at 3 mph in the evening and 2 1/2 during the day. on average they were around 30 mins but were longer the further towards the suburbs you went. The inner city patrols were the shortest.

So I hope you can see why I am confused? This seems to be the opposite of what you posted today.

In my thread the Bucks Row project I did raise this point but no-one came back on it; so I am glad you have now.
