  1. The Job Video

    Was meandering around on YouTube and found this video and thought I'd share for general interest. And of course your comments are always welcome
  2. Who Are They? What Branch?

    It sounds like your local force marine unit, or something similar. Essex marine unit did look like that... before they were disbanded.
  3. They apologise and say what their outcome was (caution/charge/nfa etc). Say how it would be their first and last time of getting into trouble with the law.
  4. You arrested two lads for theft, very compliant, first time offenders. Next day, your off duty in civis walking around town, when you spot these two males and they approach you. What do you do? Or if its happened what did you do? (Apologies its a bit random, thought of it and wondered what people would do?)
  5. No Seat Belt

    Okay thanks. So if you do stop someone they claim they have an exemption, you issue a HORT/1, but they don't they are just saying it to get out of a ticket, what happens after they don't produce the document after 7 days?
  6. No Seat Belt

    Would/could something like this be put onto PNC, either under the vehicle or driver?
  7. Depending where you were, type of road, etc you could stop the vehicle and have a chat with the driver or issue a ticket/NDORS.
  8. PCSOs Detaining Shoplifters

    If the managers were quick on the guys tail, its probably a fairly high chance that the security in the store were watching him anyway. Were there any security around?
  9. Forces with RPU Specials

  10. We have a similar thing round our way, although someone has kindly emailed the council with the VRMs of our vehicles so that we don't keep getting sent tickets.
  11. Tips for someone gaining IPS

    All sounds very informative and useful. I will bear that all in mind. As you say, Sceptre, new doors open when you get IPS when they perhaps should wait for a little while first. I do see entirely your point and do agree. Didn't think of it like a driving test, good comparison.

  13. Tips for someone gaining IPS

    I can imagine it can be difficult at night time. Recently round here the council have decided to turn off all the street lights between 0000-0500 every night so now makes it tricky driving around at night because you can't see anything. Good advice though. Many thanks I will try to work with my team and do some bits on my own because I'm obviously not always going to be with someone or could get tasked with going off and doing something on my own. Rosco - Yeah that does seem a bit silly how they couldn't do anything on their own.
  14. Tips for someone gaining IPS

    I'm afraid in Essex you aren't privy to a driving permit (basic) just because you've gained IPS. I know of SC's who've been in 4 years and haven't got a permit yet. I have been on NPT/NCT for my time so far, and hopefully planning to finish my portfolio by doing some time on response and ticking off those last few remaining boxes.
  15. Tips for someone gaining IPS

    Lots of good advice so far. Thank you! I do always try to know where I am. I'm pretty good around the town, but I'm not always going to be in town am I! I have started getting into the habit of making note of the Sgts collar so if I'm stuck I can give them a quick shout. David - I had an officer do that to me the other day. I have started working closely with a particular shift that I get on well with. So will continue to do that. We aren't specifically assigned "shifts" when we start its kind of just "go in and see how you can go with if you find someone then great if not then sorry you wasted your time" so sticking to a particular shift is good. Especially because they know me now they will try to pair me up as quickly and easily as possible. I can imagine taking a new SC out for the first time must be a bit nerve wrecking?
