I know that Met Specials have been asked for. Some of my colleagues are. My manager even said that I could get paid release! I'm not being attested until Friday, but wouldn't mind helping out with a presence if and where I could (with tutors and what not)...
You're not going on duty without me watching your back!

Obviously it goes without saying that we wish all officers involved with these operations to return safely.

It to cover local resources and I believe its availability over the next two weeks. I would willingly go up to London if i was PSU trained and had a bit of experience with large scale riots. Ninja, my ass is still smarting after the Selsey scrap we had with about 100 yobs few years back in the high street.
I have heard they have started calling some specials asking them what their plans are till Monday, think they are trying to plan available resources. As Ninja mentioned it will be covering those PSU officers who have gone to help out. PDU have also fired out an email telling people to be aware that shifts could be cancelled with little or no warning.

Yes, trust the ninja to be driving a LST van as it was the only vehicle available hence why they mistakenly thought we were PSU. I think there were seven nicks in about 10 minutes. Give us a bell matey on my usual number, it hasnt changed. If you fancy a jolly out with B section NRT give us a shout.
Ricky, those were the days....that was a good night, quite unexpected but was nice to just get a thanks from the LST sgt for getting stcuk in (errm, I mean involved). Plus it just goes to show that you should always expect the unexpected!!! (Remember the armed robbery at Barnham - at scene within 2-3 seconds!!).
