  1. Then you sir are a buffoon. The police may ignore you, refuse to engage with you, however dont forget there are NO rules of engagement protecting you from Members of the public who you film. They may not have felt you needed to film their encounter with the police. If you really feel that you must do something to ensure police are held accountable for their actions, and the betterment of those the police deal with, either apply to become a member of your local forces Lay Visitors panel or join the IPCC Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  2. Why worry about such a minor issue off duty. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  3. Civil dispute, names and addresses exchanged. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  4. Playing devils advocate, perhaps they cuffed complaints, as opposed the usual running with nothing!! [emoji16][emoji16][emoji16] Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  5. Sounds like someone needs to challenge this backwards thinking. There you are giving evidence when the court usher runs in Officer, its kicking off outside. You "Tell them to hang on 2 minutes whilst I get changed" That would go down well with the IPCC should it go wrong!! Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  6. Why has the ex DI been dealt ?? Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  7. Why do people state the obvious at the start of an MG11. Its got your name at the top, and unless your going to give specific evidence and its relevent, what does it matter how much service you have?? On day, date, time, place I was on duty in.uniform when as a result of information I went to/ I attended ..... For a general PC arrest incident this has done me for 27 years with no issues. Yes now due to my role and technical evidence I give I have list qualifications, but only when its relevant to the case such as Fatal/Serious RTCs. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  8. they are.no longer idle threats, you only have check out the likes of @cmpg or @Nwmwaypolice for when they have a serious incident, usually somewhere around the incident is a warning tweet about driving past a scene taking photos etc, and then another about how many are going to getting NIP/Request for Driver details. I've reported loads, especially HGV drivers, and had a few sacked because of it. Sent from my PLK-L01 using Tapatalk
  9. Or even realise it's a decriminalised offence that the local authority have the powers to deal with and get on with my life... Sent from the dark side of a Tachograph!!!
  10. How the hell is "Graham has been suspended from the Police since his arrest last October and would now be fired" any form of Mitigation?? Sent from the dark side of a Tachograph!!!
  11. The vehicle you describe would would not fall into the "partial raise" this is more the, as I term, old school single spec lift vehicles. All the Police duty type recovery agents are well versed in who can use and recover what type of vehicle. Most Will hold C+E so it's never an issue. Occasionally you get a younger driver to come and recover say a S165 and they usually have a stripped down, Ally body flatbed Sent from the dark side of a Tachograph!!!
  12. Polacc... Rubbish. As long as you have SDPC and you have a regular booking on station you don't need Business insurance. The problem only arises when your either travelling to multiple stations to book on/off or using your vehicle for whatever reason during your shift. Sent from the dark side of a Tachograph!!!
  13. Ticket / TOR. Likelihood is he will get an education course instead of 3 points Sent from the dark side of a Tachograph!!!
  14. MP... Looks like Tapatalk app is playing up... Couldn't see your replies Sent from the dark side of a Tachograph!!!
  15. MP.. you appear to of quoted my post without actually answering any of the questions. 1. It doesn't matter who you call, they will contact the other(s) as required. 2. Unless the driver is trying to make off from the scene, No. How do you know they have committed any offences? They could be the innocent party on the collision.
