Is Port of Dover police training recognised by NPIA/HO? I do believe the OPT training was done by HO, same with Port of Liverpool who get their training in OPT done by Merseyside
Really less training? To what level are WWPP trained, is the training recognised by the home office NPIA (other than the baton training, and who did that and does the Home ofice recognise them too?)
The oath as sworn by full constables, I do not see any restrictions within the UK where they are constables,
“I (insert name) do solemnly and sincerely declare andaffirm that I will well and truly serve the
Queen in the office of constable, with
fairness, integrity, diligence and impartiality,
upholding fundamental human rights and
according equal respect to all people; and
that I will, to the best of my power, cause
the peace to be kept and preserved and
prevent all offences against people and
property; and that while I continue to hold
the said office I will to the best of my skill
and knowledge discharge all the duties
thereof faithfully according to law.”
IF it was to be accepted that WWPP are full constables and always have been, certain members of the WWPP have comitted offences by joining a union.
Also, if they were holders of the 'office of constable' and Police officers as HO/BTP forces are, they wouldn't/couldn't be made redundant could they.
Perhaps they should quickly join the Police Federation.
With regards to BTP and office of Constable, yes we are as you said, however we can be made redundant does that mean we arnt police constables?
