  1. Yes thats right,for the last 6 months i have been bullied at work. The girl(well shes 38) that has been doing it,has got away with it because she has been having an affair with our boss. well it started to settle down since he dumped her (or so we thought).

    And then today she and another girl moved from the area they were in and they didn't like it one bit.

    So they did a horrible thing and reported me and my collegue for not talking to them.(go figure)

    Our new boss had us in the office and told us that he knows its the bully who is causing trouble.

    He even admitted she has a temper and that she is leading the other girl into trouble.

    It better end soon before i really snap. :blink:

    Taking a break from study, principally to finish paying off my credit card (*damn you, ex*).

    Think it probably works out well anyway, will pay off credit card, have more cash for the holiday coming up, more time for Specialling and if I carry on, from where I left off, in 2007 should still be on track for a Qualifying Law Degree (I can still get the LLB, but have to do the whole thing in six years for it to be Qualifying).

    Blimey! At this rate I'll be debt free for the first time in *thinks* 12 years... apart from the mortgage and a few piddly household loans (*damn you, ex*)

  3. It's now 8 weeks until 4th January and I am hoping that in the next fortnight I get my letter stating when I start! They said January and that I would recieve a confirmation letter 8 weeks before I am due to start so I am getting anxious now and am more than ready to hand my notice in at my job!!

    Got my boots the other day, Magnum Elite's as suggested by a friend in Dorset constabulary. Wore them the other day while working the door and I must say that they are very comfy and I can see why good footwear is important when being a police officer.

    Anyway, I shall let everyone know as soon as I do as it's been a great help being registered on this site and I have made some good friends. Until next time. :blink:

  4. Woo, what a week.Day Shift 1: Emergency SOLAP meeting with my Training officers. My SOLAP has to go to HQ for a check, to see if everything is OK. My Training officers are panciking because everything is NOT OK. They have been given some last minute training and have to put it into practise with me, so I am hauled in for a Tutorial. My DTO is my old Tutor, and the other DTO taught me as a Special, so I am in good hands. Tutorial goes well, I need to give out a few more Tickets (if I managed to get out of the station I would!!) but I have submitted LOADS of intelligence reports, and 45 of them are on the Intelligence systems, and I am kicking the a**e of the other probationers on my team when it comes to Intelligence reports. I can't help it, people just tend to tell me things, and I have a good memory for faces and places, and I just type it all up and stick it in!! My old tutor is very impressed.A few hours frantically typing up reports and getting people to sign stuff and it's almost ready.Although I am told I have to come back in at 8.30am tomorrow for some tutoring on the SOLAP. The only problem is....I am supposed to be going out tonight to meet everybody off my Training Class, so I've taken the day off. Eeek....no drinking for me tonight then.Just as I am about to leave for the day, I get caught up in a Sec.18 Wounding and before I know it, it's 9.30 at night and I am just finishing. So no night out at all!!Day Shift 2: Instead of 7am start, I start at 8am. Bliss - another hour in bed!!! I do a bit of clerical, and my meeting with the DTO is postponed until 10.30, so I make the time to catch up on my workload. It seems I am too efficient for my own good - the Sgts have noticed how quickly I get crimes finalised, so they tend to load me up with all the quick and easy ones - ones that only need a phone call to sort out - and I am given a few to sort out. Bah!!10.30m rolls around, and I am given a whistlestop tour of what I supposed to be doing with SOLAP. I am just banging my head on the desk when Chief Inspector comes into the office......luckily he is a top bloke and has a laugh with us and we have a natter about the Yorkshire Ripper Hoaxer, who has just been charged with a 30 year old crime.I finally get back to the report room at 2pm, and start to try and get my head roudn what I've been told I need to do when my Sgt asks me to sort out an assault at the helpdesk. One statement, one arrest and 7 hours later and I'm off home. 13 hours on a day off - double time. Woo Hoo!!Evening Shift 1: It's Friday night, oh what a night....the town is full of drunken party goers and we're out in a public order van after meal. After the first half of the shift is taken up with routine enquiries, the second half is the van. After the first hour we lose two members who are dealing with an arrest, so it's me, 2 blokes and the Sgt. All is quiet, just the odd drunk who doesn't understand what "GO AWAY, YOU'RE BARRED" means, especially when accompanied by a a hefty shove from a Bouncer. We finish at 3am, and all is well, so we decided to head back to the station at 2.45am. Just as we leave, a fight breaks out in front of us. We make 5 arrests and it's back to the nick with them. Unfortunatly 3 of the arrestees are Polish, which proves to be a little bit of a problem....!!! It's 5am before I leave. Rack up the overtime and my total tiredness!!!Evening Shift 2: I am late, I am late!!! I am due on at 4pm, and I don't wake up until 3pm!!!! Panic!!!!! Panic!!!! I make it in time (just), as I have a statement appointment at 4pm. They have left a message saying they are not going to make a statement, so I am supposed to go out with one of the lads on the shift (my mate Steeeeeve). At 4.20pm, a report of a rape comes in, and I am tasked with getting the initial account. The other girl on the shift (due to sickness and secondments and courses, there are only 2 of us!!) is a driver and drivers are in very short supply at the moment, so I knew it was coming my way. I don't mind, as I want to be Rape Trained, so any experience is good experience. The inital acount takes a couple of hours, and then the Rape Trained officer arrives and get to liase with CID - luckily I know a couple of them from when I worked at Huddersfield as a Special, so we get on really well. I get to attend the medical too. Obviously I don't get to see it, but I look after the girls Mum, and see how the Rape Trained Officer deals with the evidence and works with the Doctor. It is brilliant experience, and I tell My Sgt that I would like to be considered first for any future incidents, and that I would like to be Rape Trained. He is happy because not many officers volunteer for that kind of job! I get off on time at 1am.Night shift 1: I am up and about at 9am, thanks to Stu running about getting ready - late again!!! I do some housework and go and see my Mum at home on her dinnerhour. While I'm there, the Duties clerk rings. Would I please go to the ACR at Bradford tonight to do a 12 hour shift answering phones for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Emergency Helpline for Hurricaine Wilma in Mexico? Ooo..go on then.....First problem, I have to start at 6pm. In Bradford. In a location I have never been to before, and have no idea where it is. And I am supposed to be looking at cars with Stuart before I start work. Oh dear.I ring Stuat and let him now the developments. He finishes work early and we decide that we'll go and look at the car in Shipley, then go to the ACR in radford, Stu will drop me off and then pick me up at 7am. What a darling he is!!!!!THANK GOD FOR TOMTOM GO!!!!We find teh car dealer, look at the car, it's a sale............we negotiate the rush hour traffic and thanks to the miracle of satilite navigation we find the ACR. I have 10 minute straining on an alien computer system, and then I am answering calls from a national number. if you saw the news reports on Brits stranded in Mexico on the news, you will have seen the phone mumber "If you're concerned about loved one sin mexico, ring this number for updates..." Well it was me and 14 other WYP officers answering the phone and trying to calm people down and answer questions. Some of the calls were awful - people crying and screaming, relatives shouting and demandinga nswers...things I couldn't tell them because I didn't know. We started at 6pm, and finished at 7am. It was manic from 6pm till 2am, then it just stopped. We all tried to keep up to date with our crimes and keep ourselves awake. At 6am, they started again, relatives desperate for information and updates. It was upsetting. I heard an answerphone message from a woman trapped in Mexico, telling of squalid conditions, no food or water and people getting ill. I can't even tell you some of the things I heard. After some of the calls I just took off my headset and had to bite my lip to stop myself from crying.Stu picked me up and I was quiet all the way home.Night Shift 2: Another night on the FCO Helpline. Apparently these helplines are usually run by The Met, but an new ACPO guideline that came in this year said that each force will have a go at running helplines for disasters. The Met ran the Tsunami, the London Bombings and the Pakistani Earthquake, and now it's our turn. I start at 6pm and finish at 7am. Again, it's busy from 6pm to 2am. The majority of us are there who worked last night, so we get on really well.....the usual suspects go for fag breaks together, we discusss magazines in quiet periods, and one lad has brought in a DVD player!! Half the group watch a Peter Kay DVD and the other half (which includes me) watch Shrek 2 at 5am! It is so quiet in the small hours.Again, it's harrowing listening. I have relative sshouting at me, demanding to know whats going on. I don't have the information, so I can't tell them. An e-mail link is set up - if we hear things from Mexico vis relatives, we e-mail the Foreign Office. I am fed up with people ringing and demanding to know if rumours about flights out of Mexico are true, so I e-mail the FCO grumpily, asking for any information about Tour Operators, as we don't know anything about any flights. 10 minutes later, they e-mail back with an interiery of flights!!! It is golddust, so I photocopy it and pass it round everybody. We are all ecstatic - at last, some information!!!! And good news!!!To say we are sat there just answering phones, it is hard work, itreally take sit out of you. The relative sof people out there are frustrated and angry. Nothing is happening as far as they are concerned, so I basically have to tell people what I know and pacify them. I don't feel like I'm doing enough, I am stuck in a call centre in Bradford and I want to be in Mexico helping people. My sister works for Thomas Cook and tells me that Thomas Cook sent out a rescue flight and asked TC staff if they wanted to go to help. My sister said no...it's not her thing. She is not good with dealing with people who are suffering. I don't mean that bad - she just can't switch off and deal with it. My Dad is the same. He is a tall, strong man, but finds dealing with the pain of people hard to bear. I have seen him disappear upstairs halfway through watching a programme about children with Cancer and found him watching it in his bedroom, crying. My Mum said she would have gone, and knows I would have gone too. Some of the calls are to much to bear. People are desperate to get home. It is so frustrating.Someone gets a call and takes off their headset and calls out my name. They say they want to speak to me. I walk over to the desk, put on the headset and introduce myself. It is a call from Mexico! I have been speaking to a relative who has told their so in mexico what I've said.....and they have rung me! I tell them not to panic, and help is on it's way. I have told to FCO where they are, just keep sat tight and help will come. The call ends and I pray that help does get there.7am comes around and off I go. Onto rest days and off to bed. It has been a hard 2 nights. I wish I could do more but I can't. All I can say is support the British Red Cross because they do more work than you could ever realise, and relatives were so happy when I todl them that they were out there in Mexico.

    As the dutiful Husband I took my Wife to London to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary :inluv:We wanted to do something more than a simple meal out and it had occurred to us that we had never done the tourist bit in our fair capitol.So off we went after booking ourselves into a 4 star hotel and toddling off down.It could have started badly when they told us that the hotel was overbooked and there was no room, but.... they had outbooked us to a 5 Star swankier place :whistle: We ended staying in the Sofitel St James between Buck House and Trafalgar Square, just off St James park.It was lovely and so convenient for our activities.With out boring you all too much we went to:HMS BelfastHMS Belfast served throughout the Second World War, playing a leading part in the destruction of the battle cruiser Scharnhorst, and also the Normandy Landings.A real bit of modern history this, great fun clambering around the guns and up and down the ladders as well as the interesting explanations of everything.Tower of LondonWalked around, felt the history and ogled the Crown Jewels, really brings the long history we have in the country home to you.Bill Bailey - Part Troll ShowWent to Apollo Shaftsbury avenue for an intimate gig with this very funnyman, you've probably seen him on never mind the buzzcocks.Two and a half-hours flew by, really recommended - get the DVD.London EyeWell worth the £11 each, a great view and hell of an experience.One bit of advice book your tickets on the Internet, and then picking them up is just a card swipe. Otherwise you queue for 30 minutes to get tickets then again to get on.Cabinet War RoomsVisit the "bunker" which Churchill and the Chiefs of Staff planned WW2.A really good audio tour is included in the price; it leads you through the whole place and lets you listen to extra details on each exhibit if you want to learn more.Takes about an hour to an hour and half.I'll put some pictures up in a few days if any one cares, but suffice to say we had a super weekend.

    I did a 12 hour late shift (4pm-4am) last night in the Force Control Room and I am still mentally knackered from it. It was just plain mental!!! :stars:I was on dedicated 999 calls for most of it and I took just over 150 Calls (on average - 13 Calls an hour!!!) and created 84 Incidents which was crazy! :blink: I even took a very strange job for Harlow which was a big ball ache for the room supervisors and local top brass. When I took the call I thought the person was a bit lala to start with until she said the whole street were out looking and the incident was also ratified but 2 seperate units on division!!! :confused:oh well if that wasn't enough punishment for me, I am off to do the same again tonight!!! :p

  7. My heartfelt thanks go out to the thieving little tosser that stole my new uniform from the uniform cupboard today at the station, only a matter of hours after it had arrived from stores.May the yuletide log fall from your fire and burn your house down.In other news I have been promoted at work, am still concerned at the lack of rain in London and have been to the Horse Races this week, hurrah! I can feel more trips to Windsor and Epsom coming on.Champagne for everyone!

Flew from Birmingham with BMIbaby £40 per person return if booked in advance (includes tax etc). Only 45 mins in the air people must be mad to drive or catch the train its so easy getting the plane and then a taxi to the airport. Even booked a cab for the return home it was that easy!In Edinburgh for the end of the Jazz festival and the start of the Fringe festival infact wish I stayed abit longer for the Fringe lots more comedians. Had a fantastic time Dara O'Briain was my favourite comedian even went and saw a play (by accident) "the odd couple" with Bill Bailey and jonathan creek bloke (forgot his real name) it was err ok not my thing but it was O K. Lunch time was spent always in the park looking at the castle, sometimes it was a M&S picnic othertimes we went to a sandwich shop called "scooby snacks"! In the evening went to the "frankenstien pub", Hard Rock Cafe was quality good music, good food, long waiting time to sit down... ahem was worth the wait though. Pizza Express one night which had a live jazz band which was very err whats the word "fitting". Best place was a grill house called McKindly down Morrison Street. Had a great meal, really good 10oz steak with big fat steak chips and a bbq sauce.Did the sightseeing thing, the castle is an amazing place looooads of history and things to do and see, had a little guided tour was fab. Went in the Dynamic Earth thing which was like a little sort of interactive science thingy on earth really good for young and old, message of the day "mother earth doesn't need us to survive... we do" slightly chilling.Did a sightseeing bus thingy ticket, which was good took us to all the tourist places so we knew of different places to go and visit and where they are. funny watching the americans and euro tourists fighting for top deck seats and then pile back down because its raining again. Went to the Fudge Kitchen i was in heaven, tasted so good spent more than i should have...!The old town and royal mile was good tried to stay away from the main street, have shops like Next, HMV, M&S, etc etc plus all the best shops and places to eat where around the side streets, away from the main bits.The weather was fine, if it rained it didn't rain for long, wasn't cold, was fine and didn't stop us doing anything.Evenings out where good aswel although not impressed with £2.60 a pint i'm up north not london... pikey tourist prices... overall Edinburgh rocks :Dand remember!!!!Ach ay Tha MOOoooos!

    Well what a day it has been.I have had an awful lot of my beliefs challenged today. First of all the horrific events in London, and then rather less dramatic the Dispatches programme on C4 tonight.London - I have made no secret of my dislike of the increasingly draconian Anti Terror legislation that has been appearing recently, yet todays events brings home what it is all about. Saving lives. I cannot adequately express the deep loathing i feel towards those responsible for the attacks. Yet some small part of me also feels some resentment towards our Government for getting us so closely involved with the US in Iraq etc, and so making us that bit more attractive to the terrorist fanatics of the world. I just hope that any response is proportionate and reasonable. "Trying to find reasonable solutions to deal with unreasonable people" was one quote that has stuck in my mind all day.C4 Dispatches - All about an undercover supply teacher..she went into some of the worst schools in the country and we saw some truly shocking behaviour. Well, shocking to me anyway. I honestly did not realise exactly what some of our teachers are up against. The worst school by far was Highbury Grove....where one senior teacher wonders if the schools lack of clearly defined boundaries of what is and isn't acceptable is a contributing factor to the appalling behaviour within the school. I found myself thinking "Well DUH!!" The final school was one of the most improved in the country, and not far from Highbury Grove. They have a strict clearly defined set of acceptable boundaries, and pretty much a zero tolerance policy towards misbehaviour. The difference is remarkable, even taking into account the fact that the school is a Catholic All Boys school.I am now wondering if maybe that is what is lacking in many many schools/homes...a clearly defined idea of what is and isn't acceptable? All in all, today has left me with a distinct sense of unease, in the respect that i find myself wondering if some of my attitudes and beliefs are "too soft", and whether things would generally improve in society if a tougher stance was taken?Can't say i am going to convert into a Mail reading right of centre'ist just yet....but i certainly am having to re-evaluate what i do think about certain things..... :p

    Why did they call this blog, very odd

  8. Stressful at work today, far too much going on and the increasing realisation that I am fighting a losing battle against other peoples' inertia and incompetence.Stopped off with like minded colleagues at a handy wine bar! Sorrows drowned admirably. I am now at peace with the world. Finally got on the train, leaving Kings X at 23:30 so home at some point hopefully.Isn't Wi-fi great on trains. You can stop off at a wine bar after work, have too much to drink, and then write your thoughts straight onto the web while travelling home in the comfort of coach G!Today's thought for the day, as delivered to me daily by email:“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the ideaâ€This thought for the day is both apt and accurate. In fact, I am like a cat. I like to be warm, comfortable and stroked occasionally. On trains I always find the perfect seat. I haven't curled up on it, but I can't rule out that happening at some stage of the northward journey. The train is packed as the entire population of the suburbs, home counties and commuter belt have been denied access to their mock georgian detached mansions for the past 5 hours. And yet I have found, secured and occupied a table. Not just a table, but a table with a cunningly reserved spare seat which my briefcase is thoroughly enjoying. I can stretch and relax - watch the scum huddle in their pitiful cramped seats!However, there is a blot on the landscape, there is a fly in the ointment; if you will, there is a cloud in my perfect sky. Approximately 10 minutes after I located and sneakily took my excellent lurking spot, the seat across the aisle has been occupied by - the token weirdo!Every train has one. Every bus, plane, rickshaw and tram has a token weirdo. They sit and drool, they ask questions of the furniture, they stare at the windows but never out of them - and, if you are very unlucky, they discuss hockey at length.I am unlucky this evening.Hockey is a game that fascinates me in the same way as the sun is made of ice. I love Hockey, but only in the same way as I love being stabbed in the eye with a fork. I could listen to Hockey discussions for as long as an unsupported house brick would float lazily on the summer breeze if tossed casually from a balcony. Not to say there is anything wrong with the sport, not to criticise those who play it, watch it, or - God forbid - know the rules of it, but anyone who can fill the last 10 minutes with detailed descriptions of national training and coaching schemes, county schemes, calf muscle injuries and the divisional structure of the English league has something about them that I don't wish to be exposed to. And all this in a very odd voice!Oh, the voice! It is some bizarre squeak in which a diatribe of drivel is very deliberately delivered. He sure as hell couldn't say that sentence coherently! However, the train is moving now and at least I can concentrate on the noise of metal grinding against metal like nails on a blackboard - a noise that usually I would shun but find infinitely preferable to Mr. Squeaky there.Worse things could happen, you say. Well they are. Far from being alone in my idyllic table with soft chairs, a girl has now MOVED MY CASE and occupied the seat opposite! Common sense would dictate that she sit in the diagonal seat, but no! Why not sit directly opposite and have all the awkward leg touching and eye contact that it entails?She has taken things a step futher though. Upped the ante, heightened the stakes, you could say she has crossed the line. You could, but you would be too busy sending subliminal instructions to the jaw muscles instructing them to remain strong against the shock and horror that is taking place in the chair opposite! Did I mention that she was sitting opposite? Not diagonally, but opposite!She has a small mirror. She has removed it and is examining her face. I can forgive this indiscretion, it isn't the kind of thing I set out to find on my way home, but you must admit there are shows that charge admission that would probably provide less entertainment. But that isn't the worst of it. What is taking place before my bewildered eyes is genuinely astonishing. What is happening opposite (did I mention she was sitting opposite?) is horrifyingly and dreadfully unbelievable. Must break off briefly to get jaw situation back under control.Mandibular mania notwithstanding, I can tell you what is happening not 2 feet from my wide eyes.The girl is picking her spots in the small mirror. There, you read it! Read it again if you don't believe me! If I were speaking to you I would have to repeat that because you wouldn't believe what I had said, and yet with the printed word you have the benefit of seeing it again in all its offensive, unbelievable black and white. Why would someone do that in front of everyone? And why would someone sit in the opposite seat rather than diagonally facing? Cats would not worry about these things, they would curl up like an aging sandwich and let it pass them by. I am distinctly unfeline in this regard, being more canine and worrying about things that would be better left ignored.And the squeaky voice drones on, informing all who don't have the privileged luxury of being deaf that this is an intercity 125 as opposed to an intercity 225 , the difference being - what, exactly? Doesn't seem too clear on that point and moves on to detailed account of what Astroturf is made of.And so, the end of my essay, and still 50 minutes of the journey from hell to go! This could become an epic, it could rival war and peace, it could be published and make me millions which I would lose in bitter legal wrangles with squeaky northerners, spotty girls and all those who cannot discern 'opposite' from 'diagonal'.In 30 years time I will issue a commemorative mug with a tribute to weirdos everywhere and a small mirror, just in case.Aarrrggh!! Brief leg touching with the girl there! Avoid eye contact! Don't listen to the weirdo! Think happy thoughts........and purr......................WOOF!

  9. Well the Tyler man is back to his best, all things forgotten.Currently at work with 11 hours to go. Have no work to do for a good couple of hours. My weekend has been pants as I have been working for most of it, or sleeping...as usual.So due to working, ive been able to do a duty this weekend, but im sure next friday will be different.

  10. Hmm, where to begin today?Gold Digging Expedition - Undertaken last saturday, proved rather fruitless though. We forgot to pack a spade. Also forgot any real intention of digging up 10 acres of land as well. Money wasted on fuel - £5. Money wasted on food - £5. Money recoved from ancient gold - Nothing. Still, had fun, natch.Good news - I've received the date for my final interview for the regs, it'll be on April 14. Luckily for me, I don't have to take the fitness test that day (phew!) as it's now after the interview.Well, that's about it. I'm not in the mood for writing much today.Bye bye.

  11. TOD: 1400 - 0000As usual, get to the briefing room, and get my stuff ready.I get assigned to one of the best bobbies on this block. A real character.We're given Pappa Hotel 33. I let my colleague know that I need to make enquiries regarding the Section 47 Assault last night.Seems the club hasnt got CCTV of the area where it happened. How convenient.Tried to contact the aggrieved party.. no avail. Left a message.Nothing else can be done until the A/P makes a statement. My enquiry comes to a grinding halt.So we head out in a car finally.. Burglary in a local posh part. Seems alot has been taken and quite a bit of force used to a door. SOCO arrive at the same time, so we leave them to it, and get the house owners to tell us what was missing.It'll be a 54(Crime Report) for Burglary.Couple of vehicle stops.. one for driving like an idiot.. the other having red lights at the front of his car.. £60, 3 points thank you very much!Get given a few jobs with local youths.. one on a school roof, the others on mini motos. No Trace :/WOAH.. one just about missed us. We follow him.. stupid kid keeps looking back at us as to say "Your not gonna get me" and goes into an alleyway.What he didnt realise was the alleyway will fit a police car through. So we follow.. trailing at 10Mph..Stupid kid takes it home, guess who follows.We get out the car, and the young kids mother comes out.I give a roasting to the kid in front of his mother. And then i give his mother a roasting. No lights. No tax. No Insurance. No Helmet. Naughty Naughty Naughty!19:00 we head in for refs.20:00 Back out, to a grade 1, youths in another area of town are kicking off with a resident.We arrive and it's all over. Some criminal damage has been done. we bundle the A/P into the back of the car, and take him for a ride in search for suspects. We pull up about 800yds down the road to a group of youths, and he instantly points one out as the offender.I get out, collar the lad and inform him he's under arrest on suspicion of criminal damage. He gets abusive and starts to kick off.. I'm not in the mood for fighting, so gas him, and get him into the rear of the vehicle.As we head back to the car, another lad starts effing and jeffing, so my colleague warns him about his language.At this point i'm looking around seeing other drunk youths, and waiting for a kick off. I'm also thinking that if this idiot is let off with his language, then they will think they have one.. Come on.. just one more word..."F*** YOU COPPER" Bingo.. thats all I need.. I went to the lad, who immediately resisted and kicks off, gets gassed and dragged to the rear of the car. Face down flat on the rear window. Stop struggling you little ######.We both restrain him, and cuffs go on. You are under arrest for section 5 public order.We get back in the car, and head to the station. Halfway there, the uncuffed lad starts kickin off. Manage to restrain his arms while my colleague stops the car and gets out. He drags this young lad out, throws him against the back of the car, and as I get out, he starts struggling again. Again, we push him towards the car, and manage to get the cuffs on. We put him back into the vehicle and head to the police station.I then get a shout over my radio.. "Yea, PH33, you're through to another division" Whoops. Must have changed channel in the commotion.Change back to the right channel.Get back to the station and drag both the lads out. My colleague has one, I have the other.They both start struggling, I grab the lads cuffs and twist em to use a bit of force. Now he's cooperating.We get him inside, and straight to the cells.One admits he's a self harmer, the other tries to hide a mobile in his a**e crack. It went off as we put him is his cell.. Strip Search! *grabs the gloves*We get the section 5 done first, and then go to the lad arrested for damage. He throws a punch at the custody sgt, and ends up face down on the floor.Stupid idiot.They're both drunk, so wont be dealt with till the morning.MG10, MG11, copy of notebook, and handover sheet done. Twice.23:00 We hand over the keys for the cars to the late shift and as I have no further work to do, ask the boss if I can go home. He says yes. And I do!23:00 Off Duty

  12. Afternoon all well last night was the office party didnt go as knew i would get slaughtered and act like a T**t, but im kinda glad i didnt as now i have the great benifit of seeing all my work colleuges in various states.Also my boss hasnt turned up today so i have found myself with very little work to do ans have currently spent the morning printing off law definitions from the ref library and sitting on PS.Com oh the joys, oh and course it is FRIDAY!!!! which is always a bonusThe other half has started letting me use the bike again now after i stated that public transport is full of totty these days, ok so i worked on her jelous streek but hey she manipulates me all the time!.Well only a short one just to keep my self bloggingkirk

  13. Wow... it seems the staff bash at HQ was even better than initial expectations, having raised £700 for a local childrens hospice.Hopefully with some more tin / bucket rattling at the various divisional get togethers this will approach the £1000 mark. Had a good day at HQ today working with the newly attested officers and their radio procedure and law inputs.... They've come on leaps and bounds and are so professional when they deal with the role plays... True professionals !Only one more week of training to go, and they'll be out there making that blue line that little bit more solid...Next course starts toward the end of January.... so that should give the training team some time to relax, unwind and prepare for the deluge of new training in 2005.... New recruits, Staff Safety Requalification, First Aid and now Airwave !

    After being an SC in Dorset i have recently been seconded to Devon and Cornwall while i study here at uni in exeter. My secondment is to assist the Community Beat Officer of the university and surrounding student area in his job. Because of insurance purposes and the fact D&C use the CASCO baton not the ASP, i first need to take the OST for D&C on the 11-12 december 04. After christmas then i can start properly in assisting the CBO and seeing a new side to policing.
