  2. I did the Policing degree at Liverpool John Moore's and if I'm honest I wish I went to somewhere like De Montfort. Ours was very unorganised as it was the first year that they had run it. @Reece97I have heard rumours that if you are on the policing degree at De Montfort and successfully complete it then you may be offered a transition course that is a shortened down version of the IPLDP course which will take you from being a special to a regular. Is this true?
  3. I have made a survey. Feel free to complete and I will try to make an updated list https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/9WLP3K2
  4. Best I could do for now
  5. The user who posted it on here originally has removed the image of the table. I have however found you another one but is well out of date. We could possibly work on getting a survey out to create a new version.
  6. This is the offence that immediately sprung to my mind. One that I imagine isn't used often.
  7. Big up northerners!
  8. It depends what constitutes as being grossly offensive. If somebody sent me an email that included a photograph of myself with a 'moustache' drawn on I don't think I would be offended. It certainly would't be getting reported as a crime. If a senior officer asked me to investigate an issue then of course I would investigate the matter. I wouldn't tell him to do it himself because questioning orders is a recipe for disaster (unless unlawful). I do question whether the senior officer would actually want this reporting as a crime. Trash the email, block the sender. For the purpose of the scenario I would explain to the victim that this probably wouldn't go anywhere and I'd identify the sender to give some advice.
  9. What's the offence?
  10. I've just finished a policing degree. It taught me that there are better ways to spend £9,000 a year. Sorry for the downer but they just managed to spread out what we will be taught in 21 weeks by a home office force, over a 2 year period. But I'd do it again just for the independent living and amazing times I had with people I met. Whether your course requires you to uphold police values or not, that doesn't mean you should sacrifice the most important (very boozy) time of the year. Just try not to fill your uni room with too many traffic cones or road signs.
  11. I can remember an episode of traffic cops where something similar happened. A taxi driver had reported a female who had been drink driving and when the police caught up with her she was at home, clearly under the influence of alcohol. She said that she'd had the drink since she arrived home and I believe they seized the alcohol that she said she had consumed since being at home but our friends at the lab managed to back calculate which eventually led to a conviction.
  12. If it is a repeat offender then they are not eligible for a FPN. He/she would be getting arrested to allow a prompt and effective investigation and to prevent further loss to property. You have ticked off two arrest necessities so I wouldn't be inviting them in for a voluntary interview.
  13. I had this problem so I just used google chrome for doing NCALT. I had this problem so I don't do NCALT anymore.
  14. I didn't say it was unheard of. But I see no point in having two taser officers together. But I'm not surprised did you see the size of the knife?!
  15. This is not the case in my force. Doesn't make sense in my opinion. Why not spread the taser officers out rather than having two together? It's unlikely that you're going to need to taser somebody twice.
