  2. BBC;Cumbria Police rubber bullets found by road

    agreed, no reputable Registered Firearms Dealers will sell you cartridges without you first producing a ticket at the time of the sale, but its not requirement in law.
  3. BBC;Cumbria Police rubber bullets found by road

    You wouldn't loose your licence if you leave cartridges about, you don't need a licence to buy them in the first place At least they where handed back in and are now accounted for, I wouldn't want to be that Officer who they where first issued too....

  8. Blue Lights: Law vs Policy

    section 19 Road Safety Act 2006 (source http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2006/49/section/19 ) Exemptions from speed limits (1)No statutory provision imposing a speed limit on motor vehicles shall apply to any vehicle on an occasion when— (a)it is being used for fire and rescue authority purposes or for or in connection with the exercise of any function of a relevant authority as defined in section 6 of the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, for ambulance purposes or for police or Serious Organised Crime Agency purposes, (b)it is being used for other prescribed purposes in such circumstances as may be prescribed, or ©it is being used for training persons to drive vehicles for use for any of the purposes mentioned in paragraph (a) or (b) above, if the observance of that provision would be likely to hinder the use of the vehicle for the purpose for which it is being used on that occasion. (2)Subsection (1) above does not apply unless the vehicle is being driven by a person who— (a)has satisfactorily completed a course of training in the driving of vehicles at high speed provided in accordance with regulations under this section, or (b)is driving the vehicle as part of such a course. (3)The Secretary of State may by regulations make provision about courses of training in the driving of vehicles at high speed. (4)The regulations may include— (a)provision about the nature of courses, (b)provision for the approval by the Secretary of State of persons providing courses or giving instruction on courses and the withdrawal of approvals (including provision for appeals against refusal and withdrawal of approvals), ©provision specifying the maximum fees that a person may be required to pay for a course, (d)provision for the training or assessment, or the supervision of the training or assessment, of persons providing courses or giving instruction on courses, (e)provision for the evidencing of the successful completion of courses, (f)provision authorising the Secretary of State to make available information about persons providing courses or giving instruction on courses, and (g)provision treating courses of training in the driving of vehicles at high speed which have been completed before the coming into force of the regulations as if they had been provided in accordance with the regulations. (5)The regulations may include provision for the charging of reasonable fees in respect of any function conferred or imposed on the Secretary of State by the regulations. (6)The regulations may make different provision— (a)for different classes of vehicle, (b)for different descriptions of persons, or ©otherwise for different circumstances.” I think I've found what your looking for. You need to be trained or in training to drive with speed exceptions

  10. Who drives police cars?

    you need to be trained to drive police vehicles. Basic A-B+ complaint stop (pulling vehicles over) Response (Drive with Blues and two to jobs, speed exceptions etc...) Initial Pursuit (Pursue cars who don't stop until a traffic unit can take over, also includes stinger) Advance (Everything including tactical options) There are specials in my force with response and Initial pursuit training. There is further available i.e. 4x4, motorcycle etc...
  11. Who drives police cars?

    As above, if you have a ticket and the other doesn't then you drive. If as a Special and your crewed with a reg' I would always hand the keys over but most of the time they just give them back, haha...
  12. First Time Using Baton/CS

    I deploy my baton on every shift, I jam it on the brake peddle to check the rear brakes of the car/van I'm using that night, hahaha. But seriously, never draw my baton in anger. Used it to move some grass and a curtain a few times. PAVA, I've drawn it in anger 3 times but never deployed it. One during a foot chase with a 12 y/o with a knife. Once when I had 3 folk fighting but the threat of use was enough to persuade them to stop. The last time was at the horse fair, when a fight broke out between a few travellers. Again the threat of use was enough to make them split up.
  13. Off top of my head, I will double check when I fully wake up. But the driver must give an officer on request his/her, name-driving licence and Insurance/MOT. Only if they commit and offence do they have to give you their DOB. However their DOB is printed on licences. Road Traffic Act 1988, s164 Power of constables to require production of driving licence and in certain cases statement of date of birth (1)Any of the following persons— (a)a person driving a motor vehicle on a road, (b)a person whom a constable has reasonable cause to believe to have been the driver of a motor vehicle at a time when an accident occurred owing to its presence on a road, ©a person whom a constable has reasonable cause to believe to have committed an offence in relation to the use of a motor vehicle on a road, or (d)a person— (i)who supervises the holder of a provisional licence while the holder is driving a motor vehicle on a road, or (ii)whom a constable has reasonable cause to believe was supervising the holder of a provisional licence while driving, at a time when an accident occurred owing to the presence of the vehicle on a road or at a time when an offence is suspected of having been committed by the holder of the provisional licence in relation to the use of the vehicle on a road, must, on being so required by a constable, produce his licence for examination, so as to enable the constable to ascertain the name and address of the holder of the licence, the date of issue, and the authority by which it was issued. (2)Such a person must in prescribed circumstances, on being so required by the constable, state his date of birth. (3)If— (a)a licence has been revoked by the Secretary of State under section 93 or 99 of this Act, and (b)the holder of the licence fails to deliver it to the Secretary of State in pursuance of the section in question, a constable may require him to produce it, and upon its being produced may seize it and deliver it to the Secretary of State. (4)Where a constable has reasonable cause to believe that the holder of a licence, or any other person, has knowingly made a false statement for the purpose of obtaining the grant of the licence, the constable may require the holder of the licence to produce it to him. (5)Where a person has been required under section 27 of the [1988 c. 53.] Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988 to produce a licence to the court and fails to do so, a constable may require him to produce it and, upon its being produced, may seize it and deliver it to the court. (6)If a person required under the preceding provisions of this section to produce a licence or state his date of birth to a constable fails to do so he is, subject to subsections (7) and (8) below, guilty of an offence. (7)Subsection (6) above does not apply where a person required on any occasion under the preceding provisions of this section to produce a licence— (a)produces on that occasion a current receipt for the licence issued under section 56 of the [1988 c. 53.] Road Traffic Offenders Act 1988 and, if required to do so, produces the licence in person immediately on its return at a police station that was specified on that occasion, or (b)within seven days after that occasion produces such a receipt in person at a police station that was specified by him on that occasion and, if required to do so, produces the licence in person immediately on its return at that police station. (8)In proceedings against any person for the offence of failing to produce a licence it shall be a defence for him to show that— (a)within seven days after the production of his licence was required he produced it in person at a police station that was specified by him at the time its production was required, or (b)he produced it in person there as soon as was reasonably practicable, or ©it was not reasonably practicable for him to produce it there before the day on which the proceedings were commenced, and for the purposes of this subsection the laying of the information or, in Scotland, the service of the complaint on the accused shall be treated as the commencement of the proceedings. (9)Where in accordance with this section a person has stated his date of birth to a constable, the Secretary of State may serve on that person a notice in writing requiring him to provide the Secretary of State— (a)with such evidence in that person’s possession or obtainable by him as the Secretary of State may specify for the purpose of verifying that date, and (b)if his name differs from his name at the time of his birth, with a statement in writing specifying his name at that time, and a person who knowingly fails to comply with a notice under this subsection is guilty of an offence. (10)A notice authorised to be served on any person by subsection (9) above may be served on him by delivering it to him or by leaving it at his proper address or by sending it to him by post; and for the purposes of this subsection and section 7 of the Interpretation Act 1978[1978 c. 30.] in its application to this subsection the proper address of any person shall be his latest address as known to the person giving the notice. (11)In this section “licence” and “provisional licence” have the same meanings as in Part III of this Act
