  1. I don't see anything wrong with it. Sometimes you have to do something just a little bit uncouth to get a result, and I think anyone would struggle to deny this case wasn't an overall success. For the greater good and all that.
  2. Dutysheet app

    Indeed. Seems somewhat reckless.
  3. Dutysheet app

    Dutysheet have finally released an app for mobiles. To get it, go to your app/google play store and download DutySheet. To use it, go to your Dutysheet on a PC and head to My Details. Scroll down to 'Enable Mobile App', save changes and reload the page. Then click 'Add Device' and follow the instructions (account name is your shoulder number). Enjoy!
  4. Absolutely tragic news coming from London this morning. Excellent work by the emergency services to have evacuated so many. One of the many reasons I'll never live in a high rise.
  5. Forgotten items

    A contractor is carrying out work at a private home. They complete the work and are paid by the homeowner to the amount requested, however, the contractor forgets their mobile phone at the house. The homeowner realises this the next day, but makes no attempt to contact the contractor or return the phone, despite having numerous different ways to get in the touch with them. Instead, they simply leave it on the sideboard in the living room, knowing it's there but doing nothing with it. Could this amount to theft? While there has been no dishonest appropriation- there has been appropriation. The homeowner has the property (phone) of the contractor and has no intention of returning it.
  6. Unbelievable. Simply unbelievable.
  7. I think this is a great idea. It allows for training to be given to Specials that they wouldn't otherwise receive (minus basic first aid of course). In addition, it improves chances of survival for those most in need. Of course, the concern that this is simply 'papering over cracks' in the ambulance service seems quite well founded.
  8. Drive thru - public place or private?

    This would be a public place as long as there's no controlled access to it. A road is defined by S. 142, Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 as: 'any length of highway or other road to which the public has access and includes bridges over which a road passes.' The only time it would be private is if there is controlled access. For example, the yard of your nick will be private as it requires a fob (or similar) to gain entry. However, in court cases it is up to the prosecution to prove it's a public road.
  9. ADVOKATE in cyber crime statements

    Thanks for that. I figured as much at the time but just wanted to double check.
  10. Recently I took a statement for a lady who had been receiving some fairly nasty threats over Facebook messenger. I included all points to prove for TTK but was unsure about ADVOKATE on the end. My reason for confusion is as such; ADVOKATE are identification principles included at the end of a statement as a way to ID an offender. But if the offender is ID'd by their facebook profile and is known to the victim through an online connection does it need to be done? I must admit I didn't include it, although it would have been more sensible to play it safe and put it in any way.
  11. Honestly, what kind of a slow news day must the Sun be having to report on this? And those witness accounts? I'm 99% sure they're just the journalists making stuff up.
  12. We have something similar in TVP, and it's an absolute life saver - literally.
  13. First duty tonight - tips

    Congratulations! Knocked down two birds with one stone - first and first arrest. Top job!
  14. First duty tonight - tips

    In at the deep, excellent! A few officer safety things for Night time economy patrols: Never go off on your own - you will likely be assigned a mentor PC, stick to them like glue. When dealing with an incident, face your colleague dealing with the other involved party. This can be a bit tricky, but try and pull your involved's attention away from the other so you're facing your colleague. Don't be afraid to call for assistance. It can be daunting asking for help on the radio, but don't risk you or your colleagues safety by not asking for support. Not really officer safety related, but make sure you've had a decent amount of food to eat. These shifts are draining as anything and you may not get a proper chance to eat until you get home. Make sure you have your pockets filled with gloves as well - there tends to be a lot of blood on these shifts, a bit of sanitising hand gel is also a good idea. And of course, enjoy it! Let us know how it goes
  15. At least a double dozen for that manoeuvre!
