What do you carry your paperwork around with?
Posted 18 July 2012 - 11:20 AM
I have been an attested special for almost a month now and i am keen to find a decent folder/bag or whatever to carry around all the tickets etc... when i am on duty.
Just wondering if anyone could provide me with some recommendations as to the best options for this?

I actually have an A4 leather binder issued by the force, with common forms in plastic wallets and stuff like evidence bags or Drager tubes as well. If I'm going somewhere to take a statement etc then I've also got a clipboard with statement paper, domestic forms, RTC forms, crime reports and MG19s which I shove into the gap beside the seat so it's always to hand. The binder and a jacket tends to be the only thing I take out - I'm not a fan of ridiculously big holdalls.

I was going to post something along these lines, but SC Meerkat has already won the thread.
In reality, I squeeze my paperwork into a large leather belt pouch that I was issued when I joined, and stick a couple of the more often used items in my body armour pockets. Whenever I e.g. issue a ticket and need to remind myself to do something with it at the end of the shift then the relevant book gets moved to my body armour pocket.
I almost exclusively do foot patrols, so I don't have a holdall or folder.
