Can you expand? Are the Police a noted authority on the weather, taxation, the economy, public services, what other countries are like? Are the Police the first leave bad countries typically?

Shouldn't that be "...when a policeman starts leaving the country..."

Or have we got a silent torrent of emigrating coppers?
