  1. Waddle has left the forum!

  2. I can relate to that one!
  3. Hepatitis B injection .... Yes or no?

    My Hep B jabs were one of the few things my force was willing to pay for, they referred to me to one of two hospitals however. Anywhere else I would have had to pay for them. I would have probably paid for it however as you never know when you may need the protection.
  4. "I want your number!"

    Thats why we have shoulder numbers, that is all the public needs!
  5. Staffordshire SC to get Taser

    It would be interesting to see if the issueing of Taser to the SC in Staffs works, would it necessarily mean all forces take it up though?
  6. D Day 70

    Lest we forget!
  7. Name for Specials and public perception

    These days overtime is scarce anyway, there has always been a "thanks for coming in" where I am. You may be right about "policing on the cheap" though...but that's not something that can be resolved locally
  8. Name for Specials and public perception

    Could always just say "Constable", which we are and it cuts out any confusion with the public, the "Special" part is irrelavant in most situations in my opinion!
  9. Name for Specials and public perception

    We don't have any identifiable markings in Herts, unless you know the shoulder number system we are indistinguishable from the regulars. Being called a Hobby Bobby doesn't bother me though, its when people mistake me for a PCSO when I say I am a Special that bugs me a bit!
  10. Age maturity for the job

    Is this about maturity or is it just about being ready? Some people are just not ready for this or other similar roles....no matter what their age! Perhaps some will never be ready!
  11. The custodian is iconic, it symbolises the British Bobby!
