Mmmm, sort of agree, but we all know that officers who can not drive drain resourses...
Why does one have to complete a PDP just so they can drive - sounds odd to me. I would much rather all officers have the capability to drive from the outset, rather than using it as a reward.
I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.
Officers who cannot drive are a drain on resources eh? so why do you/they have feet? there is also a push bike option.Some people do not even have a provisional.
the PDP side is not a reward,that is only part of it, there is the application to drive and it has to be on the divisional s/sup recommendation. PDP compleation is a good way to evidence commitment etc, as the driver you may be first on the scene take it you are fully equiped to cope with that situation?
not wishing to make a 'fight' out of this but regs/pcso's etc should always be able to drive over SC's as we do the job for a living.(this was my stance when I was an SC btw).
